the psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling of Olivia Wilde, New Line Cinema y Warner Bros.you have set your theatrical release for September 23, 2022. Prior to that, will celebrate its world premiere on the stage of the Venice Film Festival, and apparently, this will be the only time we will see its leading lady, Florence Pugh (Little Women, Midsommar) promote the feature film.
The data emerges from a report by The Wrap, where it is ensured that contact has been made with three executives connected to the film, as well as an individual with knowledge of Pugh’s participation, and all of them refused to confirm whether the actress will make a post-Venice press tour.
The actress is currently filming the sequel Dune: Part Two by Denis Villeneueve in Budapest, the place from which he will travel for the premiere in Venice. Prior to this engagement, she filmed Oppenheimer de Christopher Nolan.
This is what is commented in the report of The Wrap:
“[Pugh] will be in Venice for the premiere, straight from a night shoot in Budapest, and then back [a Budapest] a filmar.”
“’She’ll be waving at us from the ‘Dune’ set because she’s not doing press.said a studio executive.
“According to the executive, the studio knew that Pugh’s availability for the ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ press tour would be limited, considering ‘Dune 2’ is also a Warner Bros. project, and so it was planned. ”
Even so, the news about the little participation in the promotion of the feature film by its protagonist, Speculation mounts about a dispute between Pugh and the director, Wilde, “over Wilde’s relationship with co-star Harry Styles and an alleged on-set fling.”
The article explains:
“In late July, Page Six released a report claiming that Pugh was unhappy with Wilde and Styles’ relationship, which allegedly began on set while Wilde was still in a relationship with Jason Sudeikis, who brought their two children to visit.”
New Line and representatives for Pugh declined to comment on the alleged feud between the director and the actress. Wilde has not addressed the issue either.
Thanks to Pugh’s fans, we know that as of September 2021, the actress has only made one post about Don’t Worry Darling on their social networks.
Pugh has done few interviews related to “Don’t Worry Darling”, but she recently did a cover with Harper’s Bazaar, where she hinted that in any conversation she has about the movie, she doesn’t want things to be “reduced” to her sex scenes with Styles.
“That’s not why we do it. That’s not why I’m in this industry. Obviously, by the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that. That’s not what I’m going to discuss because [esta película es] bigger and better than that. And the people who did it are bigger and better than that.”
In the film, Pugh plays the role of Alice, whose seemingly idyllic life will expose glimpses of something more sinister lurking beneath the glamorous facade of her domestic life.
“Alice (Pugh) and Jack (Styles) are lucky to live in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental company town that houses the men who work for the top-secret Victory project and their families. The 1950s social optimism espoused by its CEO, Frank (Pine), equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach, anchors all aspects of daily life in the united desert utopia.
“While the husbands spend each day inside the Victory Project headquarters, working on “progressive materials development,” their wives, including Frank’s elegant partner Shelley (Chan), spend their time enjoying the beauty, the luxury and debauchery of his community. Life is perfect, with the needs of each resident met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and an unconditional commitment to Victory’s cause.
“But when cracks begin to appear in her idyllic life, exposing glimpses of something far more sinister lurking beneath the handsome facade, Alice can’t help but question exactly what they’re doing at Victory and why. How much is Alice willing to lose to expose what is really going on in this paradise?
