Paramount Pictures has finally unveiled the first trailer for mother!, the new film from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky. The horror film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a married couple whose relationship is put to the test when uninvited guests at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. The film also stars Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Much to my own surprise, the only Aronofsky entry I’m familiar with is the biblical Noah, which I very much enjoyed for the type of story it tried to be. With that said, I’ve heard nothing but incredible things about the director, with some of the highlights being emotion, imagery and tension. Each of which are on display in this first trailer, with quite a bit of mystery as well.
Usually you’d see a first trailer build a few more blocks upon its official synopsis, but in this case, it’s pretty much on the same playing field. And that isn’t a bad thing. I’m completely happy with still not really knowing what this film is about, other than knowing that some thrills and chills will take place that will bend the mind like few, if any, this year. As you can tell, I’m all in for whatever Aronofsky has in store for us this time.
Check out the first trailer below and after doing so, let me know what you think in the comments. Are you into it? What kind of expectations do you have? Aronofsky’s mother! also stars Domhnall Gleeson and will be released in the heart of award season on September 15th.
A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer in this riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.
