Earlier today, Fox Searchlight released the movie trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s next film Black Swan. If you haven’t yet watched the trailer, please do so now or we can no longer be friends. Searchlight has since released an official movie poster for the film. Nothing surprising, the one sheet uses the same image of Natalie Portman in crazy make-up we’ve seen previously. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.

Official Plot Synopsis:
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.
Black Swan will appear at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, and opens in the US on December 1.
