ytsfreeSeptember 7, 2022

Of the movies coming out in 2022, Don’t Worry Darling sure has grabbed the public’s attention. From the news dropping daily to the online rumors swirling around social media, there is something new all the time. In today’s Don’t Worry Darling news, it has been announced that Florence Pugh, the film’s star, will not be attending the movie’s premiere in New York. This comes not long after she attended the premiere (but didn’t participate the press conference) at the Venice Film Festival. 

Rolling Stone reported from two insiders, and a press release from Warner Bros. confirmed, that Pugh would not be attending the NYC premiere. Along with Pugh, the press release stated that Chris Pine will not be in attendance. The event is set to take place on Sept. 19, with the film’s wide release four days after on Sept. 23. The premiere will include an IMAX screening with a Q&A with the cast, that will stream in 100 other theaters as well, so a lot of people will be watching this event.

This announcement comes after a wild Venice Film Festival for those involved with this film. All the Don’t Worry Darling drama came to a head last weekend. Beginning with Pugh not showing up for the press conference. She did go to the premiere, but stood and sat far away from the film’s director Olivia Wilde the whole time. She skipped the conference not long after it was announced that she would not be doing press outside of Venice for the film.

While these press conferences and premiere appearances have sparked rumors, the official reason Pugh will not attend is that she is filming Dune Part 2 in Budapest, which began filming in July. Wilde also confirmed Pugh has time conflicts because of Dune 2, declining the feud rumors by saying that “the endless tabloid gossip” just “feeds itself.”
