Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for Darren Aronofsky's next film Black Swan, and it looks like a great physiological thriller! The film stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, and Vincent Cassel. I had high hopes for this film and it looks like it's going to pay off. The trailer is pretty creepy and I wasn't really expecting what it reveals.
BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
The film is set to be released on December 1st. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! Does it look like it will be a good film to you?
