mother clip

Early buzz for Darren Aronofsky‘s horror thriller mother! has been largely positive since its Venice Film Festival debut earlier this week, even if many of the responses include a variation on “WTF?” along with their praise. Paramount has released some truly unsettling trailers for the Jennifer Lawrence/Javier Bardem vehicle so far, and now they’re at it again with a couple of new mother! clips that add to the movie’s turmoil bubbling just below the surface. Warning: there’s a small plot reveal lurking late in one of these, so if you’d rather go into this film relatively cold, it’s probably best to skip them altogether.

mother! early reviews

The mother! early reviews are out and critics are both perplexed by and in praise of Darren Aronofsky‘s insane sensory assault of a movie.

The psychological horror film about a couple played by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem who suddenly find themselves hosting suspicious strangers at their remote home (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer), debuted at the Venice Film Festival on Monday, and left critics reeling from the experience. But despite the bafflement of many critics — many of whom could only really say “WTF” in reaction — it seems like the overall response was actually quite positive.

La La Land - Emma Stone

From Jonah Hill’s teen dream to Academy Award-winning songstress, 2017 was the year Emma Stone hit it big. And what could top winning the most prestigious award in Hollywood for her role in the crowd-pleasing La La Land? A big fat paycheck, of course.

Stone has been named the highest paid actress in Hollywood by Forbes magazine in their annual Tinseltown salary ranking list. This means that Stone has dethroned Jennifer Lawrence, who held the highest-paid actress title for the past two years.

mother! plot

Darren Aronofsky‘s new film, mother! comes out in a month’s time. After two trailers, we know very little about the plot – a nice feeling when approaching a release date – but the mood in the trailers has spelled raw doom. The marketing has communicated a strong, tangible feeling of terror, which is how mother! all began. Aronofsky had an indescribable emotion he wanted to capture on Super 16mm with this film.

Below, Aronofsky thankfully reveals nothing about the mother! plot, but talks about the genesis of the project and his intentions.

mother trailer

The newest trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s horror movie mother! debuted tonight, and it looks like he’s putting another protagonist through the psychological gauntlet. This time it’s Jennifer Lawrence, who plays a seemingly loving wife to Javier Bardem‘s character and becomes increasingly unhinged as more and more people start showing up to their home unannounced. This looks creepy in all the right ways.

mother! Jennifer Lawrence

The mother! teaser trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s newest film seemed as cryptic you could get, with garbled, disconnected dialogue playing over a scene of Jennifer Lawrence walking silently through a house. That is, until the last horrifying 10 seconds.

It’s a teaser trailer in the truest sense, offering us nothing to make of the film, except for the fact that it looks disturbing as hell. Bring it on.

Passengers Recut

Despite having a script that was on the Black List, the romantic sci-fi drama Passengers was a bit of a disappointment when it hit theaters late last year. Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in the shiny film from director Morten Tyldum which took quite a lashing from critics for its problematic story. Even beyond that, Passengers was also criticized for being rather predictable. But what if there was one way to improve the final cut of the movie that would have made it infinitely more engaging?

Nerdwriter takes a close look at Passengers and imagines how the story would have played out in a much more interesting way if instead of following the movie from the perspective of Chris Pratt’s character Jim, we begin the movie from the viewpoint of Jennifer Lawrence’s character Aurora. It adds an entirely different feel to the first half of the movie. Read More »

darren aronofsky

Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky was prepping an Evel Knievel biopic as his directorial follow-up to 2014’s Noah, but he ultimately moved on from that project and instead got the ball rolling on Mother!, a mysterious film with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in the lead roles.

We known the film follows “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence,” but that’s all that’s been announced so far. Thanks to a new report, we now at least know the filmmaker will be returning to familiar genre territory in his newest movie. Read on to learn more about Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!.
