Press: ‘mother!’ Viral Marketing Reveals Jennifer Lawrence’s Secret

SLASH FILM – We’re only a few weeks away from the release of Darren Aronofsky‘s mother!, and in the wake of the film’s enigmatic trailers, Paramount is slowly unspooling information about the horror thriller that stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.

 

A new batch of viral marketing has divulged a major revelation about Lawrence’s character that the posters and trailers have kept secret until now. Take a look at the movie’s newest poster (complete with a hidden message printed on it!), check out some new TV spots, and uncover one of the film’s big secrets below. Warning: a potential spoiler lies ahead.

 

First up, take a look at a few TV spots that aired this past weekend during the Video Music Awards.

 

 

Here’s where the real fun begins. Aronofsky stopped by Reddit to unveil a new poster:

Press/Video: Jennifer Lawrence Is Losing Her Mind in This Insane Mother! Trailer

The Darren Aronofsky film looks even scarier than we thought it was.

 

 

VANITY FAIRIf you thought that first horrifying teaser for Mother! was insane, feast your eyes upon the new full trailer. Plot details for Darren Aronofsky’s mysterious film, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer, have finally come to light by way of the full clip, a snapshot of all the terror to come.

 

The trailer begins calmly enough, with Lawrence’s character redecorating the home she shares with her partner (Bardem, in a typically matched Hollywood pairing). “I want to make it paradise,” she coos. Then one day, a stranger (Harris) shows up in need of some lodging. And then his sinister wife (Pfeiffer) shows up. And everything starts to blow up in slow motion.

 

In typical Aronofsky fashion, Mother! seems to be all about terrifying mind tricks coupled with real-world horror (though it’s a step up in the pure-horror department from Black Swan). After the arrival of her strange guests, Lawrence quickly starts to unravel, racked with paranoia, snooping around until she finds something truly unsettling—a picture of her husband in the strange man’s bag. Pfeiffer and Harris’s characters are up to no good, planting doubt in the home owners’ relationship, and bringing with them a world of creepy mind tricks and a parade of ghoulish people with death in their eyes.

 

The real terror, however, is that the beautiful house gets destroyed, piece by piece. Lawrence’s character did all that redecorating for naught! Lightbulbs bleed and explode, one room catches on fire, and there’s a wall in the creepy cellar (there’s always a creepy cellar) that rattles, booms, and spurts blood. It’s like reverse HGTV.

 

Mother! hits theaters on Sept. 15, a prime release date for awards-season audiences to sit down and see if Aronofsky has a potential best-picture nominee on his hands. Oscar crowds don’t typically go for horror, but the filmmaker’s particular brand of fear coupled with his winning cast might be too hard to ignore—depending on the final product, of course.

Press: “mother!” Gets Ominous First Teaser

The Darren Aronofsky-directed film arrives Sept. 15

 

 

EW – Jennifer Lawrence’s next movie is coming a month earlier than expected, and now we’re getting a first (and intense) look at the film via its first teaser trailer.

 

The new footage from mother! arrived online Monday, beginning with Lawrence wandering through a home as disembodied voices are heard speaking. But as the teaser progresses, things take a much more sinister turn.

 

The psychological thriller, written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), centers on a couple whose relationship is tested when a group of unexpected guests arrive at their home. Lawrence stars alongside Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ed Harris.

 

mother! will screen at film festivals in Venice and Toronto before arriving in theaters Sept. 15. Before that, the film’s full trailer will arrive on Aug. 8.

Jennifer Lawrence Has Heart in the First Poster for Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Mother!’

COLLIDER – It’s not entirely obvious when the backlash to Darren Aronofsky started but it likely started around the time The Fountain was released. The release of two masterpieces in the wake of that wild metaphysical mess rehabilitated his reputation extensively but then the backlash got resurrected with his undervalued, remarkable Noah, in which Russell Crowe played the biblical character. Even bonafide bible-thumpers, the same crowds that showed up for dreck like War Room, didn’t make the trip to see Aronofsky’s film. A popular reason given was that people died and the story was sad, which clearly never happened anywhere else in the bible.

 

Regardless, this is all to say Aronofsky is an ambitious director whether he also happens to be a popular one or not. He’s never made a boring movie and for all the flack that The Fountain and Noah have received, there are very few movies in circulation that look like them and even fewer films that are written with such audacious aims. Addiction, obsession, and pent-up desires are paramount to his films, whether in the guise of heroin in Requiem for a Dream or fame and physique in The Wrestler. Similarly aggressive returns of the repressed can be found in Pi, his excellent debut, and Black Swan, his beloved horror-melodrama starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
