Rate-a-Trailer: Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan

After Darren Aronofsky’s massive mainstream success, The Wrestler, we can imagine some of his Pi-era fanboys (not to mention the folks that actually enjoyed The Fountain) worried he’d lost his edge. The trailer for Black Swan, which comes out December 1st, should set their minds at ease. This thriller, set in the competitive world of the New York City Ballet, stars Natalie Portman as a talented but perennially overlooked dancer and Mila Kunis ā€” who, despite her tiresome That ’70s Show character, can actually act ā€” as her possibly imaginary nemesis/Persona-style existential double. Watch the clip, which features a mysterious back wound, a girl-on-girl makeout, a Portman meltdown, and some seriously intense editing, and tell us what you think after the jump.
