Darren Aronofsky’s returns the end of this year with his new supernatural thriller ‘Black Swan’. Starring Natalie Portman (below) and Mila Kunis as two rival ballet dancers who expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship. A new still has been revealed which shows Natalie Portman with demon-like red eyes. ‘Black Swan’ also stars Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder and Janet Montgomery. You can check out the new still below.
“‘Black Swan’ follows the story of Nina, 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 who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice.
But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily, 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’ arrives in theatres on 1 December in the US and not until 11 February 2011 here in the UK.
