"What brings you to us?" asks Jennifer Lawrence in the opening moments of the first teaser for mother! "They told me I could find a room here," a man says. "He thought we were a bed and breakfast," responds Javier Bardem, before the clip descends into screams, scary music, and someone shouting, "Murderer!"
The film has remained a great mystery, with little known about it other than Darren Aronofsky's involvement as writer and director--his follow up to Black Swan and Noah. Lawrence and Bardem are joined by an eclectic cast that includes Domhnall Gleeson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Brian Gleeson, and Kristen Wiig.
mother! offers one more clue as to its plot with an unassuming logline: "A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence."
So, it would appear the movie is about JLaw and Javier living in a home that looks like a bed and breakfast. But when people come over thinking that's the case, things get violent and scary instead of leaving quietly after realizing their mistake.
Take a look at the trailer, below, and peep the creepy poster above.
