Darren Aronofsky’s ‘MOTHER’ Trailer Bears Crazy Horror
Sometimes Horror begins with Hello.
The full trailer for Director Darren Aronofsky’s (Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler) new thriller MOTHER! just dropped and from the looks of it, a simple Hello can spell disaster. Continuing his trend of putting lead characters through the most personal of horrors, Aronofsky’s new trailer portends the same mind-bending chills he delivered in 2010’s Black Swan.
Opening that year’s Cannes Film Festival, Black Swan went on to receive five Academy Award nominations and earn lead actress Natalie Portman an Oscar for Best Actress. Could the same happen for the female lead in MOTHER!, Jennifer Lawrence? Let’s hope so because it could mean major props for Horror fans as MOTHER! seems to lean even more towards our most favorite of genres than Black Swan did. Fingers crossed. With talent like Aronofsky at the helm, I wouldn’t be surprised if 2017 sees Horror land on the list of Best Picture nominations.
Starring Lawrence, MOTHER! delivers top talent with Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and a devilishly beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer. The film opens September 15th and will be featured in this year’s Golden Lion competition at the 74th annual Venice International Film Festival.
