Looks like Jennifer Lawrence and “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky are a match made in horror heaven.
Paramount Pictures premiered a brand new teaser trailer today for “mother!” — what looks to be a wild psychological thrill ride. No stranger to the genre, Aronofsky has cast some Hollywood heavy-hitters, including his lady love Lawrence, as well as Oscar winner Javier Bardem and Golden Globe winner Michelle Pfeiffer.
The film centres on a couple whose home is visited by some uninvited guests, leading to quite the sinister scenario. Despite the clip being only 30 seconds, JLaw instantly captivates viewers — stalking around an empty house to the tune of spine-chilling audio, the highlight being Jennifer passionately shouting “Murderer!”
According to IndieWire, the studio has been very tight-lipped about the film — “not releas[ing] any first look photos or footage until now.” That air of mystery definitely shines through, and with the full-length trailer dropping August 8th, it seems fans can certainly expect another round of intense visuals.
“mother!” is set to debut at the Venice Film Festival — its theatrical release is slated for September 15th, bumped up by Paramount to closely follow its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.
