Arrow in the Head have revealed a batch of new stills from Darren Aronofsky’s much anticipated thriller ‘Black Swan’. They feature some of its stars including Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis (below), Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder. So tutu’s at the ready, who’s looking forward to this one? Writer/director Darren Aronofsky (‘The Wrestler’, ‘The Fountain’, ‘Requiem for a Dream’) is such an exciting and thought provoking director I can’t wait. Check out all the new stills below.


Make sure you head on over to Arrow in the Head and check out the rest.

“BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Natalie 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 (Mila 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.”


‘Black Swan’ opens stateside on 3 December. UK’ers will have to sadly wait until 21 January 2011 for this one.
