Jennifer Lawrence Removes Her Heart In Gory First Poster For Next Aronofsky Movie

Mother! opens in October and also stars Javier Bardem.


Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky's next film is titled Mother!, so he took the opportunity today--on Mother's Day--to celebrate in his own way.

The director released the first poster for Mother!, which shows actress Jennifer Lawrence holding her heart in her hands, ripped from her chest. Blood covers her white dress. The colorful background shows frogs, flowers, and vines. It is very eye-catching, and you have artist James Jean to thank for that.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Mother! is a psychological thriller that "follows the story of a couple whose relationship is tested by a group of unexpected visitors."

Skyfall actor Javier Bardem's name is also on the poster; he apparently plays Lawrence's other half. The film also stars Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kristen Wiig, Domhnall Gleeson, and Brian Gleeson.

Mother! opens on October 13. Let us know in the comments below what you think of the poster.
