Seeing Is Believing: Paramount Releases First Trailer for Mother!

by Stuart Winchester, Viacom

It’s a gracious country home resuscitated by a meticulous Jennifer Lawrence, living out a bucolic life with Javier Bardem. But then strange visitors (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer), arrive. In their suitcases they carry an eerie sketched likeness of the husband. Strange meetings and rituals commence. The house begins to bleed like a dying animal. Their stately oasis has become a caged and corporeal nightmare.

That’s a little of what we can gather from the Darren Aronofsky-directed Mother!’s trippy, frantic first trailer, released earlier this week. Look for the movie in theaters on September 15.

Paramount Releases Teaser Trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s mother! Starring Jennifer Lawrence

by Stuart Winchester, Viacom

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.
