Fox Searchlight has released the first poster for Darren Aronofsky‘s new film Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Vincent Cassel.
The dark tale with psychological twists stars Portman as Nina, a technically brilliant ballerina whose life takes some strange turns after being picked as the lead in a New York City production of Swan Lake. Pressures mount as her overbearing mother (Barbara Hershey) pushes her to succeed and her manipulative dance master (Vincent Cassel) commands her to be more seductive and loose in her performance. Complicating matters is the arrival of Lily (Kunis), a sultry dancer who exhibits all the innate ease and sexuality that Nina lacks. Nina begins to fixate on the newcomer as the two forge an unusual relationship.
Black Swan will appear at the Venice International Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival, and opens in the US on December 1st, 2010. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you can check it out here
