Black Swan Trailer Starring Natalie Portman

Black Swan Trailer: Natalie Portman Dances in the Dark

You all probably know by now how much I love cheesy dance movies, but let's get one thing clear off the bat: Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan ain't no Center Stage. Natalie Portman stars as Nina, a ballerina whose career is threatened by newbie Lilly (Mila Kunis) as they compete for the leading role in a production of Swan Lake. As Lilly gets into Nina's head (and maybe even her pants), Nina starts to lose her grip on her dancing and her sense of reality.

The juxtaposition of black and white is obvious here: the trailer strikes a balance between the beauty and grace of ballet with darker themes of delusion and manipulation. We see Lilly lurking around corners and eventually invading Nina's dreams — there's even the suggestion that Nina's actually turning into a swan. The preview is perfectly tense, but I'm hoping the film won't induce the same level of squeamishness as Aronofsky's Requiem For a Dream. Check it out after the jump.

When I first heard the plot, I was not overly excited however then the images were released and suddenly curiosity sparked; now the the trailer reveal, I am anxious to see this film, as it seems to be an interesting mind-bender with dark yet beautiful cinematography. A bonus is that it does not look like every other film out there; I am tired of much of the copycat films mega studios are releasing.

Am i the only person who didn't like Requiem for a Dream, it gave me a headache and depressed the hell out of me. But this looks amazing and the concept seems original and interesting I'm definitely going to see it.

I don't know, Requiem for a Dream was good (extremely disturbing, but good) but Aronofsky also directed The Fountain which was one of the worst movies I've ever seen...
