Seeing is believing. The full trailer for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming psychological-thriller mother! has finally hit the web. The footage has sent shockwaves of pure terror to every corner of social media. We knew it was going to be intense from the recent teaser, but we weren't ready for this!
Luring viewers in with a false sense of security, the trailer opens with #JenniferLawrence and #JavierBardem relaxing, admiring their lovely home. Out of the blue, a foreboding knock on the door: #EdHarris, charming and delightful, stumbles, seemingly helpless. Moments later, #MichellePfeiffer, as his baleful-looking wife, arrives. And then the real terror begins. Watch the trailer below:
This thriller has Aronofsky written all over it. The bleeding walls, the parade of ghoulish invaders, Jennifer Lawrence descending into pure madness. Then there's Michelle Pfeiffer stepping out of her comfort zone (way out), and even the mystery surrounding the ominous title for the film — it all sends chills down my spine.
It seems Stephen King's IT will have some equally terrorizing competition entering its second week at the box office.
Without giving away any significant plot points, the trailer hits the viewer with one terrifying scene right after another. All the while, Jennifer Lawrence's character struggles, along with all of us, to come to terms with whatever the hell is happening. As Bardem does a complete 180 and Pfeiffer becomes even more sinister with every glance, it becomes clear that the couple's life, as they know it, will never be the same again.
mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, is currently slated to hit theaters on September 15, 2017.
