Well any movie with Natalie Portman gets me excited, but after watching this trailer it’s more intrigue! From the Director of THE WRESTLER Darren Aronofsky comes the new trailer to Fox’s upcoming film BLACK SWAN. There’s been some extremely positive test screenings of the film and with a cast also including Mila Kunis and Sebastian Stan seems like a winner already in my eyes.
Fox has released the Official Plot Synopsis…
Nina (Portman) is 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 obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (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 – a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
Unfortunately there is no Australian Release Date as yet, but as usual our American friends will get to
see it on the 1st December.
