The upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling premiered at Venice Film Festival yesterday on Monday, September 5th. The film was bound to get people buzzing: Harry Styles’ debut in the starring role, an Olivia Wilde directorial feature, and Florence Pugh as the leading lady. It sounded so good at first. My dream cast, with stars like Gemma Chan, a sexy psychological drama described as an “erotic thriller.” And what should have been a Zendaya and Timothee-esque press tour. But alas, we got the opposite. Drama upon drama. It’s a tale of betrayal, lies, and good old Hollywood egos. And we worrying, darling.

Here’s everything we know:

  • Oliva Wilde and Florence Pugh are … not close
  • Shia LaBeouf says he quit Don’t Worry Darling. Olivia Wilde says she fired him. What’s the truth?
  • Harry seems very nervous … and not just for his debut in a leading role
  • Chris Pine is stuck in the middle of it all — and was spit on? Maybe?
  • Harry Styles kissed Nick Kroll. And we are jealous. But also still worrying, darling

Ever since Hamilton debuted, I have not known peace.

In 2016, the Broadway sensation won 11 Tonys and captured the hearts and imagination of theatre kids, older white people, and revisionist historians everywhere. Everyone was talking about Hamilton, and everyone was talking about its star and creator, Lin Manuel Miranda.

When I decided to re-watch all of the James Bond movies in chronological order, I wasn't exactly expecting a politically correct, feminist franchise that would pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.

My memory of the early movies consisted of a lot of smarmy one-liners, plenty of women in that kind of pointy bikini tops, bad guys with Russian or German accents, and loads of shots of Sean Connery's legs. As far as Bond's relationship with women, I remembered that he was unquestionably a womanizer, and women often just melted into his arms, apparently seduced by the mere sight of him. I was prepared to laugh at these outdated tropes and accept the movies' questionable gender dynamics as a product of a different time. I wasn't expecting to see point-blank sexual assault.
