International 'Black Swan' Posters

Putting movie poster design in the US to shame, there are four new international teaser posters for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and they are, in a word, spectacular. Check 'em all out after the break.

Empire got these images (see them larger there) which count as teasers because the film doesn't open in the UK until February.

Here's the synopsis again, and be sure to take a look at the trailer if you haven't yet. And Peter reviewed the film out of Telluride, so check that if you want early opinion on the picture. Black Swan opens on December 1.

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.
