Paramount Pictures

Writer-director Darren Aronofsky is back to his dark psychological horror/thriller turf with “Mother!” starring Jennifer Lawrence, and we finally have a first look at what the director and his star has been up to.

The creepy teaser starts with Lawrence wandering around an empty house with mysterious voices of various characters heard in the background. The teaser then ended with intense quick cuts of Michelle Pfeiffer and Javier Bardem as well as horrifying images that suggests something ominous and sinister is about to happen.

Written by Darren Aronofsky, the cast also includes Ed Harris, Kristen Wiig, Domhnall Gleeson and Brian Gleeson. As the film is kept under wraps, not a lot is known about its plot. Paramount’s official synopsis for the film reads: “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.”

As announced on the end of the teaser, there will be a full trailer next week, August 8.

Known for his mind-bending films such as Black Swan, The Fountain, and Requiem for a Dream, Aronofsky last directed the Biblical epic turned Hollywood blockbuster “Noah” with Russell Crowe in the title role.

“Mother!” will be premiering at the 74th Venice International Film Festival before it’s scheduled theatrical release on September 15, 2017.
