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.

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.

Murder on the Orient Express

Crime stories have been all the rage lately, ranging from the documentary series Making a Murderer to the podcast Serial and the dramatization of one of the most publicized trials ever in The People vs O.J. Simpson. This fall we’ll get another one, but it’ll be a classic that millions have either read or seen before.

Murder on the Orient Express is a new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel or a remake of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film adaptation, however you want to look at it. The whodunit won’t hit theaters until November, but some first look photos have just arrived showing off the star-studded cast that includes Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Olivia Colman, Leslie Odom Jr, Willem Dafoe, Tom Bateman, Derek Jacobi and the film’s director, Kenneth Branagh, with one of the most impressive mustaches the big screen as ever seen.

Our own Peter Sciretta saw some footage at CinemaCon and said it looks promising, complete with some stellar costume and production design. Now you can see what he was talking about in the first Murder on the Orient Express remake photos below. Read More »

The Wizard of Lies

Quick: name the most recent film in which Robert De Niro delivered a dynamite performance. Silver Linings Playbook? Maybe the original Meet the Parents? We don’t have to go as far back as 1998’s Ronin, do we? Yikes. Answering that question is far tougher than it used to be because De Niro has appeared in a ton of not-so-great films over the past fifteen years, leading some to attempt to pinpoint the exact year he seemed to stopped caring about his career.

But now we have a full trailer for the HBO original film The Wizard of Lies, and it looks like the once-legendary actor may finally be ready to give a shit again.
