    Black Swan Trailer 1



    A New York City ballet company is producing Swan Lake, and director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) with ballerina Nina (Natalie Portman). Nina lives with Erica (Barbara Hershey), her overbearing mother and a former ballerina. Nina finds competition in new dancer Lily (Mila Kunis). Swan Lake requires a ballerina who can play the innocent White Swan, which fits Nina, and the sensual Black Swan, which fits Lily. The dancers' rivalry changes into a bizarre friendship, and Nina begins exploring a dark side of herself.

    Directed by Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, The Fountain and Requiem for a Dream)

    Fashion Fact - Rodarte created 40 costumes for the movie and outfitted the entire ballet corps.

    ----------

    I'm so excited about this movie. The Wrestler was fantastic and this is an amazing cast (great to see Winona on the big screen).

    The premiere is at the Venice Film Festival on September 1st (also might be at the Toronto International Film Festival). It opens in the US on the December 1st.

    This has "Oscar" written all over it.

    I wonder whether Clint Mansell will compose the soundtracks to this movie as well 'cos he and Aronofsky have previously been working together in at least 3 movies.

    ^ People are saying he is but he's not listed on the film's IMDB page. But you never know.

    If it an't broke don't fix it.

    am i the only one who's strangely reminded of dario argento's 'suspria'? i mean if you think about it there are some eerie similarities. it's a horror film...it's about dancers....it has fairy-tale elements....it's about demons....

    not necessarily explicitly similar,xerq,but more so in it's elements. some keep comparing it to rosemary's baby and that to me sounds far more ridiculous.

    Looks like a worthy follow-up Oscar performance for Portman since Closer.

    Yeah it definitely made me think of Suspiria.

    I've been looking forward to this for a while. Natalie + Winona + Darren = yes please! Which is not to say that Aronofsky can't have a misstep. I loved Pi and The Wrestler but I thought The Fountain didn't work.

    Clint Mansell is listed on the credits at the end of the trailer so pretty safe to say he's involved.

    I can't wait to see this. I'm so glad Clint will be involved. His score for The Fountain is nothing short of perfect.
