Murder, stranger danger and J Law, oh my! The teaser for Jennifer Lawrence's new thriller just dropped, and we're totally creeped out and uncomfortable.
Mother! tells the story of a stranger who shows up on a couple’s doorstep and proceeds to wreak havoc on their idyllic lives. In the trailer, J Law pads around wearing a silk negligee in an empty house looking terrified AF as snippets of dialogue slip in and out through a scary and unsettling voice-over. “What brings you to us…He’s a stranger…Did you know he had a wife?” we hear Lawrence's character asking. As the music swells, her voice-over becomes more frantic, saying, “You’re insane” and finally screaming, “Murderer!” *Rocks in fetal position in corner*
The dark, psychological horror-thriller marks the first collaboration between Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and the Oscar-winning actress. Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Domhnall Gleeson and Kristen Wiig also star in the anxiety-fueled thriller.
The full-length trailer for Mother! is due out next Tuesday, August 8, and the film hits theaters September 15. Excuse us while we pre-schedule our therapist appointment for the week of September 15.
