Trailer Debut: Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan Enters Stage Right


The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” has arrived online. What is “Black Swan”, you say? It’s a psychological thriller set in the world of ballet. Plus, fanboy hotties Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman gets it on or somethin’.

BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

Starring Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Christopher Gartin, Winona Ryder, Sebastian Stan, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey and directed by Darren Aronofsky.

The girls lay it on the line December 1, 2010.

    Whoa! Wasn’t expecting all that. I may actually have to see this for the film and not just the Portman/Kunis scene ;-)

    Black Swan surely beats the hell out of James Cameron’s Avatar

    I’m confused. Is there a monster in this movie? Or is that something inside her head maybe?
