Intense New TV Trailer Darren Aronofsky's Divisive Thriller 'Mother!'
"He's a stranger…!" Ready for this? Paramount has debuted a new "extended look" TV trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Mother!, which just premiered at the Venice Film Festival. This new trailer comes on the heels of very divisive buzz for the film, with rave reviews and hateful reviews, which is not unexpected for a new Aronofsky film. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem star as a couple whose relationship is "tested" when uninvited guests arrive at their secluded home. The full cast includes Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, Brian Gleeson, Stephen McHattie, Kristen Wiig, and Stefan Simchowitz. With a score by Jóhann Jóhannsson. There's also a brand new viral website to go along with this, if you want to check it out here. I loved the film, and rave about it in my review from Venice. Proceed with caution.
Here's the new TV trailer (+ promo poster) for Darren Aronofsky's Mother!, direct from YouTube:
Centers on a couple (Jennifer Lawrence & Javier Bardem) whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. Mother! is both written and directed by acclaimed American filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, of the films Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Black Swan, and Noah previously. The film is also produced by Aronofsky, as well as his producing partners Scott Franklin and Ari Handel. Paramount Pictures will release Aronofsky's Mother! in theaters starting September 15th coming up in the fall. This will first premiere at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals before heading to theaters. For more updates on the film, follow @MotherMovie. Thoughts?

M. Pfeiffer, Ed Harris and J. Bardem might be the reason to see. As for Aronofsky and Lawrence, I am not so sure. At some festivals, critics liked the film while the audience didn't. That's a good sign ...

The first trailer is pretty interesting. This film is not to be missed. Aronofsky is an auteur. Black Swan and The Fountain, masterpieces. Pity he's dating Lawrence. Complete with 22 year age gap. What an eye-roller. And what's more, she is depicted in the film as being with Bardem, who is also 22 years older than her in real life. Ridiculous when you consider the many great (and greater) actresses out there in their late 30s/40s. Though while her real life dating cannot be explained, I'll wait to see if the movie has some surrealist reason behind her pairing with such an older dude.

Nice! From the little we see in the trailer, it looks like a spin on Rosemary's Baby, though? Hope it'll turn out differently.
