In the trailer, which seems to depart from the tropes of a traditional horror film, Lawrence appears obsessed with a brick wall, which is at one point dripping with blood. In another flash, it looks to conceal a tunnel. Lawrence’s character also is alarmed at one point by a hoard of people approaching in a field.
The cryptic film was announced in October of last year and Aronofsky released an alarming teaser poster on Mother’s Day featuring a colorfully illustrated Lawrence holding her heart in her hands.
A previously released teaser revealed little about the plot of the film, besides hinting that Lawrence and Javier Bardem play a couple living in an isolated home whose lives are interrupted by visitors. The film is billed as a psychological horror-thriller, and is set to include an eclectic cast with Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Domhnall Gleeson, and Kristen Wiig.
“Mother!” has a planned release date of Sept. 15 and is set to have its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, in addition to competing at the Venice Film Festival.
