**Update: Read full review for Black Swan now!***
This morning, we posted some early reviews for Darren Aronofsky’s latest film, Black Swan. It was chosen to open this year’s Venice Film Festival and so far the response has been positive. Overall our thoughts on the film have been confirmed — it’s creepy. To keep up that fear factor Fox Searchlight has released several photos from the film that feature stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, and Vincent Cassel. Take a look…
Black Swan centers on a New York ballerina who’s battling for a spot in Swan Lake. The part requires her to encompass both the good and the bad versions of the main character a quality that Portman is having a hard time pulling off. Enter Kunis, another dancer who’s her rival and the personification of everything the “black swan” needs to be. As Portman’s character tries to relate and get in touch with her dark side, she delves deeper and deeper into something that goes beyond ballet — something supernatural.
Is it just us, or does Vincent Cassel always play shady characters in movies? Not all, but most of his roles are of people who aren’t on the straight and narrow. Just saying.
Black Swans opens in theaters nationwide on December 1st.
