The trailer for one of the most anticipated films of the year is finally here. Darren Aronofsky has made some of the best films of the previous decade with Requiem For a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler. Kicking off this new decade with a supernatural ballerina thriller, Black Swan, he looks to continue his greatness.
The film stars Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder. Check it out trailer:
Synopsis: BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughterâ€™s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
A host of celebs are stepping out to celebrate the career of Oscar-winning director Ron Howard.
Vaughn, Ryder, Kevin James and Jennifer Connelly – the stars of Howard’s upcoming comedy ‘Cheaters,’ due out next January — and Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer will help celebrate the ‘Angels & Demons’ director’s career achievement award at the 46th Chicago International Film Festival’s annual summer gala this Saturday.
“The Chicago International Film Festival’s Summer Gala is the most anticipated event of the year, with all proceeds to benefit the year-round programs of Cinema/Chicago,” said managing director Vivian Teng. “We’re thrilled to have Ron Howard as this year’s honoree.”
Previously reported under the title “Your Cheating Heart,” but referred to by Deadline Hollywood as “Cheaters” (though it’s hard to tell if its just their shorthand in getting the story up or a legitimate title change) the film centers on a man who finds out his best friend’s wife is cheating, only to struggle with what to do with the knowledge. Vince Vaughn is set to play the man struggling the knowledge, while Ryder will play the cheating wife married to Kevin James. The film is based off an idea by Brian Grazer, produced by Vaughn and Imagine Entertainment and has been adapted into a script by Allan Loeb (“Wall Street 2,” “The Baster”).
While it was previously reported that this wouldn’t go in front of cameras until next year, the film is now being prepped for a spring shoot in Chicago.
In a very sad and shocking news, I’ve opened my mail box today and read about Brittany Murphy death, at 32. I still can’t believe it.
My thoughts are with her family – specially her mother Sharon, friends and also her fans.
Brittany and Winona are good friends for a long time, since they work together in Girl, Interrupted. Most of Noni fans also like Brittany’s work, so here’s our tribute to her life and talent!
SlashFilm has announced that Vincent Cassel, Winona Ryder, and Barbara Hershey have all joined the cast of Black Swan. The film stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as rival ballet dancers at a dance school. Ryder plays Beth, who is a friend of Portman’s character and the lead in all of the school’s productions. She’s nearing the end of her career, so all of other dancers are aiming to take her place as Odette, the Swan Queen, in the next big ballet: Swan Lake. Cassel will play the handsome but sinister Yevna, director of the new stage production.
Shooting on Black Swan is scheduled to start in just a few weeks in New York City.
Not that I care about this things, but it’s IMO unnaceptable that this “most beautiful people” lists never list Winona, as a beautiful woman she is. Empire did the justice, and listed her into the 100 sexiest movie stars, in the position 49 for female. Yup, I know, but we can’t complain, she’s there.
