Trailer: Black Swan

Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan (Fox Searchlight, 12.1) will debut in a few weeks at the Venice Film Festival before heading off to Toronto, and as things stand, it's certainly one of the heavyweights this upcoming awards season.

After seeing the trailer, I'm both elated and skeptical in regards to the dark, biting psychological overtones to this thing, which looks like a return to form of sorts for Aronofsky after his excellent low-budget character sports-drama The Wrestler.

The thriller/horror elements are a bit surprising, but knowing the filmmakers, I think this material is in safe hands and I'm very much looking forward to an all-out career-defining performance from Natalie Portman.
