The release of Olivia Wilde don’t worry darling has been plagued by drama surrounding the film’s director as well as its main stars Harry Styles, Florence Pugh and now fired Shia LaBeouf. The movie, however, is finally out today after all these months of drama.

Fans lambasted Wilde for her affair-turned-relationship with her film’s lead actor Harry Styles, as well as her treatment of Shia LaBeouf, and Pugh’s minimal effort on the promotional side doesn’t help either. However, the film was impressive on the big screens.
