Now that we’ve had a few hours to absorb Darren Aronfosky’s first full-length trailer for mother! (in theaters Sept. 15) we thought we should take a closer look into all the mysterious and WTF moments that are happening.
Buckle in and keep clicking for more Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, and a lot of really intense/creepy imagery.
It all starts so innocently, doesn’t it? What could possibly go wrong? Here we see Jennifer Lawrence playing a not-yet-named young wife to an older husband played by Javier Bardem. They’re so in love! She says she wants to build a paradise here! They are so happy!
...is that blood?
Here’s the first sign that things might be going awry — a mysterious spot on the pristine carpet. Cue creepy string score!
Michelle Pfeiffer pays a visit
Look, it’s Michelle Pfeiffer and she looks fantastic. Who else is ready to sign on to a full scale Pfeiffer-sance?
Not for nothing, but please note the credits of Aronofsky’s we are going with here are Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, both psychological thrillers.
What on earth is Jennifer Lawrence’s character drinking? It’s like Alka Seltzer on steroids, but yellow. (We do not think it is actually Alka Seltzer.)
View from above
This is an interesting shot from above that makes us think of two things —1) Hitchcock films, and 2) if maybe it is the house itself that is paying a role of the haunting within.
A steamy scene
This is not really a WTF moment but holy hell, look at Michelle Pfeiffer sexin’ it up! #Pfeiffer-sance!
This is not Thriller, this is actually terrifying — and it’s comes right when this trailer really starts doubling down on the terror factor. Who are these people? What do they want?
A stranger in the house?
Is this Domhnall Gleeson? We know he’s in this movie but could this ghoulish doorway dweller be him? 88% sure.
Home sweet home
Welp, the walls are bleeding, the house is crumbling.
Can we come in?
Annnnnnd, this is too scary an image to contemplate. What do all these scary things want with poor Jennifer Lawrence?
