Trailer Park: Black Swan

6 Dec

I posted this trailer on my Facebook profile ages ago… but I’m reposting it because I really can’t wait to see it. The film stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as rival ballerinas. Now that may not sound appealing to you, but it has a dark/thriller side that should pique the interest of those who are skeptical. And if you’re still holding out- well Portland and Kunis have sex in the movie. Oh now you’re interested? Nice….

So here’s the synopsis (thanks Wikipedia!):

A New York City ballet company is producing Swan Lake, and director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre with ballerina Nina (Natalie Portman). Nina lives with Erica, her overbearing mother and a former ballerina. Nina finds competition in new dancer Lily (Kunis). Swan Lake requires a ballerina who can play the innocent White Swan, which fits Nina, and the sensual Black Swan, which fits Lily. The dancers’ rivalry changes into a bizarre friendship, and Nina begins exploring a dark side of herself.

And the trailer!

It technically debuted this weekend on only 18 screens nationwide, but still raked in $1.4 million (that’s about 77k per screen!). The movie will be available to more cities this Friday, and will be widely released on the 17th (at a Landmark theater in Milwaukee!!!). If there’s a midnight showing, I’m going… If there isn’t I will be there first thing (after work…) on Friday!!! Who’s with me?!?!
