Jennifer Lawrence paces in a shadowy setting as ominous voiceover swirls around her, in the first teaser for Darren Aronofky’s “Mother!”

“What brings you to us,” Lawrence’s voice is heard as she walks around a seemingly empty house.

“He’s a stranger,” she also says. Although little about the movie’s plot is known, it is supposed to center around a stranger who arrives and interrupts a couple’s otherwise peaceful life together. Later Lawrence asks, “Did you know he had a wife?”
