Excitement mounted last month when it was announced at CinemaCon that Darren Aronofsky was to return to the realm of psychological horror that won him an Oscar nomination for 2010’s Argento-esque Black Swan with his latest film, Mother! While plot details remain scant, we can now take a look at the first poster, upon which star Jennifer Lawrence offers up her heart.
Contrasting its horrific image with a traditional, children’s book style, the poster marks the beginning of the promotion for the film, which has a release date of October 13th.
Mother!’s all-star cast sees Lawrence joined by Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Kristen Wiig and The Force Awakens’ Domnhall Gleeson. Aronofsky wrote, produced and directed the film, for which the only official plot details released come in the form of the following brief synopsis:
A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
Look out for more on Mother! in the coming months.
