The highly anticipated film, Black Swan, made its trailer public the other day on YouTube to rave reviews. The movie, scheduled to debut worldwide on December 1st, is highly anticipated and stars Natalie Portman.
While the trailer left more questions than answers about the plot, it still generated a lot of interest on the web, cracking the top 10 searches in Google Trends and other major internet search tracking sources.
Movie critics have been generally enthusiastic about the trailer, comparing the aura of the film to that of the film Paranormal Activity. The movie going public tends to back Darren Aronofsky, who has produced several high quality films in the past including Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler. Aronofsky has pleased his fans with movies that are artistic gems while at the same time pleasing his bosses with a lot of Box Office success as well.
The trailer has stirred up a lot of emotion for sure- all we really know about the movie is that Portman is a ballerina who is tormented by an upstart new rival, played by Mila Kunis, who appears to psychologically get into her life and head in ways that will most certainly not turn out well in the end.
It is not clear whether or not Black Swan falls into the category of psychological or supernatural thriller, but it appears to be thrilling for sure and it’s one film many look forward to attending come December 1st!
