Hollywood (August 9, 2017): The first full trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s psychological horror Mother! has been revealed.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Aronofsky’s latest concerns a couple whose sedate homelife is disrupted by the appearance of two unexpected guests (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer). Soon Lawrence’s character becomes deeply unsettled by both her new house guests and her increasingly odd husband (Javier Bardem), and begins to experience creepy visions.

Judging by the trailer, Mother! looks similar in tone to Aronofsky’s 2010 thriller Black Swan, featuring unsettling imagery and a menacing score from Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. The film is the first in Aronofsky’s career to not feature regular musical collaborator Clint Mansell.
Reaction to the trailer has been mixed, with some Twitter users criticising the age gap between Lawrence (26) and Bardem (48). Lawrence has been frequently paired in her films with older male actors, including Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.
Mother! will appear in competition at this year’s Venice Film Festival before being released in US and UK cinemas on 15 September.
