First unsettling trailer for ‘mother!’ from Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) is here!

Rolling over in bed this morning and playing this trailer certainly woke me up for the day.

Turn the lights out and turn the volume up for this one! Our first peek at mother! by from Darren Aronofsky is here. The trailer starts out with a standard J-Law premise of being in love, but quickly devolves into borderline horror. Random creepers show up at her door, a brick wall drips with blood, and at one point a horde of strangers approaches her home carrying torches.

We already know Javier Bardem can play a real creep, his work in No Country for Old Men comes to mind. Bardem’s character seems to have a part to play in the overall insanity that is shown here, but doesn’t look like the main antagonist. While I wasn’t a huge fan of The Fountain, and still have not seen Requiem for a Dream, I absolutely loved Black Swan, and this looks to be just as weird. Check out the premise and trailer below, and try to not get legit shook.

Bonus – the film’s director, Darren Aronofosky, dropped into Reddit to post the trailer himself today – which was neat!


A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer in this riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.

Release date: September 15, 2017
