‘Don’t Worry Darling’ Team Worried About The Social Media Attention

After weeks of disputes and public insults between filmmaker Olivia Wilde and star Florence Pugh, the much-awaited Don’t Worry Darling made its debut on Friday in theaters around the globe. After the celebrity drama took over social media, people started writing regarding their experiences rushing to the theaters to witness it all in person.

The movie’s marketing was quickly overshadowed by the rumors. Following two incredibly jarring interviews about the movie earlier this month, there was early this month conjecture of a quarrel between Wilde and Pugh. Pugh avoided mentioning Wilde and the movie in her social media posts. Part of it was Harry Styles replacing Shia LaBeouf as Pugh’s co-star; Wilde said she’d done it only to shield Pugh.

After weeks of disputes and public insults, the much-awaited Don’t Worry Darling movie had its national debut on Friday. It became much more problematic when it was revealed that Styles and Wilde began dating while the movie was being filmed, despite Styles’ horrible performance. 

Then Pugh said that besides the premiere, she wouldn’t be able to attend promotions for the movie. Everyone looked to the ensemble for drama in Venice’s Film Festival debut in September, and they offered. Pugh and Styles were trolled.

Fans were eager to see the movie that was the cause of all this little controversy by Friday, weeks after the issue initially started. Many users of Twitter said that when Wilde’s name was announced, the audience booed. Styles’ acting was instantly criticized, with some comments alleging that fans were making fun of his attempts to become a “weighty actor.”

It is anticipated that Don’t Worry Darling would do well at the box office. According to Variety, the movie made $9.4 million from launch day and all Thursday screenings, and it’s still receiving attention.

Regarding the drama, it doesn’t seem like this popular movie will soon lose its iconic status. After being quiet on social media for a while, Pugh posted a picture of Wilde stating that this movie was an epic narrative on a massive level to film throughout the pandemic and that she’ll always be glad for it.
