We thought the initial 29-second teaser for Jennifer Lawrence's new film Mother! was terrifying, but the just-released full-length trailer is on a whole new level.
Plot details from the dark thriller are still being kept under wraps, so it’s not exactly easy to decipher what’s happening. All we know is that J Law appears to be completely losing her mind and her father lover (Javier Bardem) may have something to do with it.
The trailer begins by offering a glimpse into the blissful lives of Lawrence and Bardem's characters. She spends her days transforming their home into a “paradise” until a stranger (Ed Harris) shows up at their door and asks to stay. Then, for some reason, the stranger’s wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) knocks on their door and things really start to get cray. Lawrence and Bardem’s characters turn against each other, and she becomes increasingly paranoid to the point where she feels compelled to go through their (unwelcome) visitors’ luggage. Alas, her suspicions come to a head when she finds a picture of Bardem’s character among their things. Dun, dun, dunnnn!
The haunting film features many of the disturbing aspects and psychological mind games for which critically-acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) is so well-known.
Mother! hits theaters on September 15 and is definitely not recommended for the faint of heart.
