Watch Now: Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan’ Is A Ballerina Movie You’ll Want To See
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s new movie, Black Swan, has been released online.

The film is a little difficult to wrap your brain around due to the fact that it’s about ballerinas, but of course, with Aronofsky involved it’s hard to deny your interest. And after you watch this trailer and see that there’s a whole hell of a lot more than ballet going on, you’ll be legitimately excited to see yourself some Black Swan.

The movie stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Castle. It tells the story of a talented ballerina who lives with her retired dancer mother who’s trying to win a highly coveted part in a new ballet, but finds herself up against some tough up-and-coming talent.

Be sure to click on over to the other side immediately to read the film’s synopsis and check out the great new trailer. Travel over to Apple for HD options.


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.

  2. Now this looks super interesting. Ballet is an dance art that is rarely taken seriously by our generation (twenty-somethings), so I simply must see what Aronofsky does with this piece.
