Coming Soon – Black Swan

Black Swan

With the notable exception of The Red Shoes, movies about ballet leave me pretty cold. However, Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, due out in the US at the end of this year, looks all kinds of awesome.

With Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as warring ballerinas, and Vincent Cassel as the Premier MaĆ®tre de ballet, the casting itself is enough to make your mouth water. Add in some patented Aronofsky weirdness, Barbara Hershey as scary ballet mom and a splash of lesbianism and you’ve got pretty much something for everyone.

The trailer is a delight in black and white tones, with either a hint of the supernatural or just potential madness on the part of Portman’s character. This is either going to be absolutely brilliant, or possibly just bonkers old tosh. Either way, I suspect it will be hugely watchable and damn good fun.

No news yet as to when it opens in the UK, be assured, as soon as I get a whiff of a screening, I’ll be there…
