The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming film “mother!” dropped today and it is intriguing if not a little unsettling. Starring Jennifer Lawerence and  Javier Bardem who is appropriately creepy. The film has been shrouded in mystery with little in the way of details coming out. Paramount had this to offer in terms of plot summary which is just as vague

A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.  

The trailer (which you can see above) doesn’t reveal much more which in many ways is refreshing and reminiscent of the haunting mysterious vibes I got from watching the A Ghost Story trailers. mother! will be the 7th feature film from Aronofsky who has found great success with psychological mind-benders in films like Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream. Alongside Lawerence and Bardem, a large cast is credited including Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, and Ed Harris.

Personally, I am getting a few obvious Get Out vibes mixed with elements of Rosemary’s Baby but I guess we will have to wait till release to see if this ends up near the Black Swan side of Aronofsky’s filmography or the Noah side.

Mother! arrives on September 15th.
