Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan

Mark this down in your calendars now (at least if you live in New York or Los Angeles). Fox Searchlight has announced that Darren Aronofsky's supernatural ballet thriller Black Swan will open in select theaters on December 1st and expands from there. Searchlight opened Aronofsky's The Wrestler on Dec. 17th, 2008 after its premiere at film festivals. It was recently confirmed that Black Swan would be premiering at both the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals in September, which means it will definitely have a lot of buzz by the time it opens in December, including some potential Oscar buzz like Mickey Rourke had for The Wrestler.

A psychological thriller set in the world of New York ballet, Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at their company (Mila Kunis). Black Swan takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect. In addition to Portman and Kunis, this also stars Vincent Cassel, Winona Ryder and Sebastian Stan. You can see a few first look photos here. Easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2010!

Where does the supernatural angle in this movie come in?

@2... No one knows the answer to that question yet which is why I love Aronofsky, you'll just have to trust in the cast and director and go see the film on faith to find out.

If Alex sees it in Toronto and spoils that secret I'll give him a black swan eye...

I hope to God Aronofsky hasn't made a film with a twist or unreliable narrative, as it's called. Some cheap trick to fool the audience or whatever. So sick of that shit.
