Darren Aronofsky has been keeping his new movie shrouded in secrecy, so we were very excited indeed to be able to take a peek at the first trailer for mother!, which is due to debut in UK cinemas on 15 September. Jennifer Lawrence features heavily in the chilling first official trailer, while we also catch a glimpse of co-stars Ed Harris, Michelle Pfieffer and Javier Bardem, who looks rather upset.
Following an atmospheric opening, the final moments descend into a terrifying cacophony of sound and image, which is often the way Aronofsky structures his movies. Although details are scarce at this point, the briefs snippet footage promises a disturbing tone which echoes Aronofsky’s previous work in his 2010 psychological horror-thriller, Black Swan. Which is very okay by us.
mother! will receive its world premiere at the 74th Venice International Film Festival.
