Just a week after releasing the first trailer for the George Clooney-directed Suburbicon and following the weekend release of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Paramount Pictures has dropped the teaser for mother!
While the 29-second clip doesn’t reveal any plot points, it succeeds in creating a tense, layered, austere and absorbing world, a backdrop for the star-heavy cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer to deliver something special. With Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) directing, that seems likely.
All Paramount has revealed for certain, aside from the cast, is a bullet-point description: “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.” For more, we’ll have to wait until the studio releases the full trailer next week.
Mother! will hit theaters September 15.
