Ah, Mother’s Day. It’s a time when our feeds are clogged with people pouring their hearts out for their loved ones, but director Darren Aronofsky couldn’t resist a grotesque tie-in for his upcoming film Mother!
The first cinematic poster for the film, posted on Twitter by Aronofsky on Sunday, features a sullen-looking Jennifer Lawrence with her hands drenched in blood.
Lawrence also happens to be holding her heart in her hands, seemingly freshly taken out of a gap in her chest. We know Mother! is meant to be a psychological horror film, but just, wow.
The poster is by artist James Jean, who has received accolades for his covers on the Fables comic book series. He’s also known for his murals for fashion houses such as Prada and Phillip Lim.
As for Mother!, we can figure from the poster that Javier Bardem will star alongside Lawrence, possibly having to deal with her freshly-dislodged organs.
Not spared from the carnage is Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, and Kristen Wiig, who all feature in the film in roles that are yet-to-be revealed. Mother! will hit theaters this October.
