Psychological thriller fans eagerly anticipate director Olivia Wilde‘s upcoming tense and mind-bending film, Don’t Worry Darling. In part due to the cast, but also due to the significant media attention and drama that has followed this film. Alice Chambers (Florence Pugh) is a happy 1950s wife and homemaker living in the company town of Victory in the 1950s with her husband, Jack (Harry Styles). Everything seems perfect until she begins to sense something is off about Victory and the company Jack works for. Frank, played by Chris Pine, is seen in the trailer actively leading the community and openly challenging Alice’s suspicions. He also lives in Victory with his beautiful wife, Shelley (Gemma Chan). Viewers can already sense the gaslighting in his smirk, when he folds his hands and leans forward with, “I’m curious to see where she’s going with this.”
Just from the trailer, we can see that Pine falls into this role of a beautiful, yet potentially threatening and most definitely manipulative, man effortlessly. Finally, Don’t Worry Darling, after all the online chaos and gossip, is finally in theaters. As to when we’ll see Don’t Worry Darling come to streaming, no date has been set. But since Warner Bros. is behind the controversial movie, it’s sure to hit HBO Max sometime towards the end of 2022 or early 2023. As we see Chris Pine take on another role and surely make it as memorable as he has done throughout his career, here’s how you watch his other movies, from the Star Trek movies to Wonder Woman.
