Five years after his cinematic debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, we have gotten a glimpse of Harry Styles’ first role as the leading man in Don’t Worry Darling.
The trailer for the highly anticipated psychological thriller, and directorial debut from the former One Direction crooner’s partner Olivia Wilde was released to the public overnight.
The clip first debuted at CinemaCon last week, when Wilde was served custody papers by her ex Jason Sudeikis on stage.
Styles stars alongside Florence Pugh and Gemma Chan, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, Chris Pine and Wilde round out the leading ensemble.
It follows the lives of Alice, played by Pugh, and Jack, played by Styles, a young couple in the community of Victory in the 1950s, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families.

Wilde has previously explained that her inspiration for the film came from psychosexual thrillers like Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal.
Shia LeBeouf was originally cast in the role of Jack but after he dropped out, Styles took up the part.
LeBeouf — the disgraced actor, whose former partner FKA Twigs has accused him of sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress against her — originally cited scheduling conflicts as the reason for his departure from the film although Wilde has since revealed he was allegedly fired over poor behaviour and for clashes with other cast members.
The film will hit American theatres on September 23, but Aussie fans will have to wait a little bit longer with Warner Bros. AU releasing Don’t Worry Darling in cinemas on October 20.
News of Wilde and Styles’ relationship first broke early last year and comes as Wilde split with Sudeikis in November 2020.
The former couple started dating in November 2011 and share two children, son Otis, eight, and daughter Daisy, five.
