The Venice Film Festival welcomed the world premiere of Olivia Wilde’s new film Don’t Worry Darling on Monday.
Don’t Stress The internet is going crazy over Darling for various reasons. Some claim that Harry Styles spit on a fellow actor.
This one is a film that is generating news for all the wrong reasons. a contentious movie that has tales of acrimonious on-set fights between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh, the star of the film. Here’s all you need to know about the movie itself, though, before we go any further.
What’s the deal with Don’t Worry Darling?
A psychological thriller set in the 1950s is called Don’t Worry Darling. In a company town in California, Jack Chambers (played by enormously successful musician Harry Styles) resides with his wife Alice (Pugh). When Alice starts looking into the business her husband works for, a mystery unfolds. The foundation of their contented life begins to fray as a result of her study into the business’ “Victory Project.”
Now let’s get to the topics that matter to you most.
What’s up with all the drama among the actors?
Where should I start? The movie Don’t Worry Darling is entangled in the debate on numerous fronts. Shia LaBeouf will be our first stop.
After alleged conflicts during filming, LaBeouf was abruptly sacked by Wilde and replaced with pop artist Harry Styles in the role of Jack Chambers.
LaBeouf was the subject of a Variety profile by Wilde.
According to Wilde, “His method was not supportive of the ethos that I require in my productions.” “His method appears to call for combative energy in certain ways, and I don’t think that’s conducive to the best results. The best method to encourage employees to produce their best work, in my opinion, is to establish a secure and trustworthy workplace.”
Wilde appears to be pleading with LaBeouf to return to the set because she isn’t “ready to give up on this yet” in a video message that LaBeouf gave to Variety, despite his protestations to the contrary.
Wilde seems to be alluding to a dispute with Florence Pugh in the message:
In the video, Wilde says, “You know, I believe this might be a little bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo. I want to know if you’re open to giving this a go with me, with us. If she truly commits to it at this point, if she puts her heart and mind into it, and if you two can reconcile — and I respect your point of view,
Due to this, rumors of a falling out between Olivia Wilde and her main actress Florence Pugh have gone viral online. Fans are obsessing over social media posts and body language in group photographs of the cast, and there are literally thousands of tweets and an extensive online discussion about it. During a press conference for Don’t Worry Darling prior to its showing at the Venice Film Festival, Wilde was questioned about the alleged breakup.
She is our lead, and I can’t express how honored I am to have her, Wilde remarked. She is fantastic in the movie, and as for all the hubbub online and the never-ending tabloid rumors, I mean, the internet feeds itself.
The internet, however, went absolutely crazy on Monday over any and all interactions between the cast members during the press conference and the movie viewing. People are dissecting every tiny contact between the movie’s stars, from the seating arrangement to their responses to press conference queries. One outlandish rumor is causing a stir on social media right now: Chris Pine’s co-star Harry Styles may have been surreptitiously spitting upon by Harry Styles prior to the film’s Venice Film Festival screening.
This brief video clip is being scrutinized in great detail. (After careful consideration, I am positive that Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine because that would be crazy.)
The story also has additional components. According to rumors, Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde started dating while Don’t Worry, Darling was being filmed. At Cinema-Con in Las Vegas, Olivia Wilde, who was previously married to Jason Sudeikis, the star of the Ted Lasso movie, was reportedly served with custody papers.
When is Don’t Worry Darling on television?
The US premiere of Don’t Worry, Darling took place at the Venice Film Festival, but it won’t be released there until September 23.
What are the movie reviews saying?
The film’s early reviews have been generally negative. At the time of writing, the movie had a Rotten Tomatoes score of 39% and a Metacritic score of 49. Those are poor ratings, especially in light of the unanimous acclaim Wilde received for his debut film, Booksmart, which came out in 2019.
The majority of reviews appear to think the film is a touch undercooked. Its failing is “mainly one of imagination,” according to Los Angeles Times reporter Justin Chang and critic Hannah Strong, who both termed it “pretty rote and unoriginal.”
However, it is noteworthy that the film garnered a standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival and that Florence Pugh’s portrayal of the lead character has received high appreciation from both critics and festivalgoers.
