Fox Searchlight's Gorgeous Official Website for Black Swan is Up
Fox Searchlight has been knocking it out of the park recently with the websites for their films (e.g. Danny Boyle's 127 Hours). One gorgeous design after another, and that's key in making sure these fantastic indies get some extra attention. Plus, mentioning this gives me the chance to talk about how much I frickin' love Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. I got to watch it again last week at the AFI Fest premiere and it was even better a second time. Awards Daily was the first to mention the new site, which is just gorgeous to navigate through and full of so many great photos. Click BlackSwan2010.com or the image below to check it out.
A thriller about the relationship between a veteran ballet dancer and a rival who's looking to win the same role in the new production of Swan Lake. Co-starring Winona Ryder, Vincent Cassel and Barbara Hershey.
Black Swan is directed by award winning iconic filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, of the films Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler previously. The story and script were written by newcomer Andres Heinz and revised by Protozoa Pictures' exec Mark Heyman (Cha Cha de los Chans). Fox Searchlight will be bringing Aronofsky's fifth feature film, Black Swan, to limited theaters starting on December 3rd this fall.

Thanks, Alex. The site is really awesome, but I'm going to have to get the soundtrack now. Hearing clips of Mansell's stuff is making me anxious.

Looks odd. Does it have a supernatural twist to it, or is she just going nuts?

The info about some supernatural element being a salient ingedient of the story has effectively extinguished my enthusiasm for "Black Swan". Shame.

@Marty If you're looking for an excellent psychological thriller, not supernatural horror, Black Swan is still a go. Supernatural elements are peripheral, not salient... if we're going to use fancy words.
