Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan gets a trailer.

While the first 2/3 of this trailer plays out like a variation on All About Eve, the final act goes hardcore weird, hinting at some kind of third-act revelation that I may or may not have figured out already. For what it's worth, this film may in fact be a remake of Perfect Blue, which Aronofsky purchased the remake rights to in order to borrow a few shots for Requiem For A Dream. Oddly enough, Winona Ryder gets fifth billing in this film, yet is barely featured for 1/2 a second in this trailer 1:24. Pretty much anything Aronofsky does at this point is exciting, as Requiem For A Dream was one of the best films of the prior decade, and The Fountain was a flawed, but emotionally-devastating little experiment (The Wrestler didn't impress me all that much, but it was certainly a good character study). This newest entry opens on December 1st.
