While the promotional drama surrounding its actors led to an unusual firestorm of attention  
in the press and across social media, Wilde’s psychological thriller “Don’t Worry Darling” still turned a profit off a modest budget upon its release in September. After a tumultuous 2021 saw Warner Bros. films hit streaming and theaters at the same time ahead of WarnerMedia’s 2022 merger with Discovery, “Don’t Worry Darling” is a good reminder that the studio doesn’t necessarily need to double down on tentpoles galore under its new owner.

She’s still acting, too, turning up this holiday among Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon” ensemble.
