News About "mother!"

Darren Aronofsky writes, directs and produces the film mother! His previous work includes Noah (2014) and Black Swan (2010). The bible-based epic was a wash out for religious viewers, but the earlier ballerina thriller, which included a lesbian sex scene, spun him an Oscar nomination for Best Director.

Aronofsky has been very quiet about the details of the 2017 project. But judging from the poster of mother!, that depicts a woman holding a bloody heart that she has ripped out of her chest, he is creating a horror movie. And watching the teaser trailer where voices echo around a woman walking through an empty house, he’s tapping into his psychological thriller creativity.

The movie stars some Hollywood heavyweights, including Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (for Silver Linings Playbook) who appears in the aforementioned gory promotional art, along with Javier Bardem (who is depicted in a second, fiery poster), Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Domhnall Gleeson and Brian Gleeson.

All that has been released about the plot is a vague synopsis: "A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence."

The movie, mother! is being distributed by Paramount Pictures, and is set to release in theaters on September 15, 2017 (which is earlier than the originally scheduled October 13, 2017).
