Paramount Pictures has dropped a chilling official trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s psychological thriller mother!, which sees Jennifer Lawrence terrorized by unexpected visitors.
Starring Oscar-winners, Lawrence (American Hustle, Hunger Games), Javier Bardem (Skyfall), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind), and three-time Oscar-nominated Michelle Pfeiffer (Scarface), the star-studded film looks equal parts unnerving and intriguing.
Darren Aronofsky is known for the Oscar winning film Black Swan and Oscar-nominated film Requiem for a Dream, his upcoming thriller mother! seems to incorporate his signature style, blending unsettling mind tricks with dark, twisted paranoia.
The trailer features a loved-up Lawrence and Bardem sprucing up their home – until things get weird as uninvited guests start arriving at their doorstep. While Bardem welcomes the guests, Lawrence’s paranoid character feels that something is off. She heads to the basement where she is met with blood dripping walls, and snoops around to find aged photographs of her husband in the stranger’s luggage.
“They have come here to see me”
While the trailer has left many fans in awe, others can’t get past the 21-year age gap between Lawrence and actor Javier Bardem.
There’s already a horrifying twist for MOTHER!: Javier Bardem is nearly twice Jennifer Lawrence’s age

What I love the most about it is how it doesn’t just give away the plot, it manages to keep a mysterious side that makes want to see more

The scariest part of the Mother! trailer is the age difference between Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.
