Waiting on Wednesday
Dir: Darren Aronofsky
Okay this was just TOO easy this week. At this point in the year there's not much left to pine for, film wise. Most people have checked off the big 2010 films from their lists as the US summer comes to an end. But Aronofsky's Black Swan has long been in the back of my mind as a highly anticipated film, and this morning we were treated to the trailer.
It looks just...amazing. Combining ballet with a thriller plot I cannot wait to see this film. Here's a quick run down thanks to The Tube Trailers.
There are a few moments in the trailer that took my breath away, well not literally, but close enough. The scene where Nina's reflection in the mirror turns independently to her, and the closing shot of Nina pulling the beginnings of a black feather from her back, her eyes a bloody red, were truly exciting. This is clearly no Step Up 3D dance movie, this is going to be great... I hope!
No release date for Australians yet but with a US release date of December 1st, and an obvious Oscar campaign to follow, you can assume we will get this some time in the new year.
