Gorgeous Promo Poster Set for Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan'
Wow - I didn't expect to see anything like this! Empire has debuted a series of four new promo posters for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Winona Ryder and Barbara Hershey. This film is one of my favorites of 2010 and I wasn't that into the official poster (too much make up for my tastes), but these are simply stunning. I'm not sure who designed them, but I think they're being put out to help drum up interest in the film's London Film Festival screenings. If you haven't seen the trailer for Black Swan, it's a must watch. Everyone should add this to your list of must see films for the fall.
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. You in?

Wow. That is some awesome design. Finally a major movie gets a good set of official gorgeously hand crafted posters. Haven't seen the likes of these in decades.

Just when I was lamenting the loss of art in movie posters, these turn up. Beautiful and inspiring. I want. 🙂

If Criterion gets to release this movie they should use that top right poster as the box cover.

Very cool, with a 40'ish vibe in them. Something you'd see (exactly) in an opera house. There is something about the one in the bottom left corner... at a first glance, it's the less attractive, but after a while, you can't take your eyes off it.

I'd be "in" Winona Ryder and Natalie Portman in a heartbeat.

If Barbara Hershey were featured in the credits then they would be perfect.

Wow these posters are gorgeous! Even more wonderful the longer you look at them like #6 said. Which is exactly how movie posters should be. Although I actually really enjoyed the original poster as well. I thought the amount of make-up on Natalie Portman fit for the dark satire the film portrays. And the eeriness of her eyes was a nice foreshadow as well. But these would be the ones that would end up going on my walls though.
