When news broke of Darren Aronofsky going back to the horror genre it was a welcomed news. Whenever he has used horror elements in his films he has done it in spectacular fashion with films like Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream. So there is no reason to not get excited about him venturing into the genre once again. Especially with the tremendous cast that he has assembled for this film.
Today Paramount has released the first full-length trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s mother!. The film follows a couple who have built their dream home in the middle of nowhere. One day an unknown couple arrives at their house and it begins to test the couple’s relationship.
The trailer does a good job of showcasing you more of the horror elements of the film rather than the psychological thriller elements. But those horror elements were there in tremendous fashion. But the trailer really doesn’t give us much of a glimpse into the story of the film. But you do get a look into the visual style he will bring to the film and just how eerie the film will be.
mother! will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and will screen at TIFF after. It will open in theaters September 15th and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Glesson, Brandon Glesson, and Kristen Wiig.
