Fans went into a frenzy over the first trailer for Olivia Wilde’s forthcoming psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh as married couple Alice and Jack.
The Don’t Worry Darling director said she was upset that she had to cut some sensual scenes from the trailer for the coming psychological thriller as she spoke to the Associated Press about helming the film.
There is a lot that had to be taken out of the trailer. The Motion Picture Association, Inc. came down hard on me and the trailer at the last second, and she had to cut some shots, which she was upset about because I thought they had taken up another notch.
However, in a new interview with Associated Press, Wilde claimed that the trailer originally included more provocative scenes but was cut down by the audience rating board.
However, we still live in a puritanical society, she added. She thinks the lack of eroticism in American films is new.
Wilde also argued that female pleasure is censored more than male pleasure in cinema, saying: People are upset with me already over this. She thinks it is a testament to the film. We want to be seductive. The plan is not to make you feel safe.
Contrary to her director, Pugh expressed a lack of interest in being asked about romantic scenes with Styles in a recent interview.
Wilde’s first trailer for the movie, which dropped in May, managed to include some fully-clothed shots from two various sex scenes between stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, one of which his oral sex on hers.
YouTube placed some age restrictions on the most recent trailer, with the disclaimer: This video may be inappropriate for some users.
Pugh later responded to the attention those sex scenes have already received from audiences, explaining that the movie is bigger and better.
