Jennifer Lawrence is back on screen in a creepy teaser for her new film Mother! The first look at the hotly anticipated horror flick sees the 26-year-old actress stalking the hallways of her eerie country home while surrounded by menacing voiceovers. Followed by a series of horrifying flashes, the teaser abruptly ends in a title screen. The movie will make its debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.
Mother! is the latest psychological thriller from the mind of director Darren Aronofsky. The plot hinges on a couple that finds their lives and relationship disturbed when uninvited guests appear at their home. Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer also star.
Jennifer and Darren’s first collaboration churned out more than just a terrifying flick. The A-listers found love on set and despite a 22-year age gap, the duo is still going strong. They were first spotted dining together in New York City last August, and then again in L.A. in October. Clearly age is but a number because their values certainly align: the two were also part of a campaign to encourage college students to vote in the most recent presidential election.
Darren, who Jennifer has called “a visionary,” was once married to actress Rachel Weisz, with whom he shares a son. The pair split in 2010 and the director soon moved on with Canadian film producer Brandi-Ann Milbradt. Jennifer dated actor Nicholas Hoult for five years before enjoying a brief romance with singer Chris Martin.
