Mother! is the latest film from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky, and an unsettling first trailer has landed. It’s billed as a “psychological horror film,” and the star-studded cast includes Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall), and Ed Harris (Westworld). Check out the trailer below:
A synopsis for the movie reads: “A young woman’s tranquil life with her husband at their remote country home is challenged by a mysterious couple who arrive and lodge with them.” The trailer certainly delivers plenty of chilling imagery, from spooky basements and creepy dinner parties to blood-filled lightbulbs and what looks like a sinister cult advancing on the house.
Aronofsky is known for the similarly dark, Oscar-winning thriller Black Swan, as well as such movies as The Wrestler, Noah, and Requiem for a Dream. The cast for Mother! also includes Michelle Pfeiffer (Dark Shadows), Kristen Wiig (Ghostbusters), and Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
Mother! hits theaters on September 15, 2017.
