Upon our first glimpse at the poster for Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! 2017 movie, we had fallen into the same paranoid, hallucinatory as Nina Sayers in Black Swan. After all, it’s not every day that Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence rips her own heart out and offers it to the public.
The secrecy surrounds Mother! film trailer making the detail of Jennifer Lawrence ripping out her heart even more extreme than usual. Very little information the plot of Mother! 2017 movie is known, and it all comes from this rather succinct and vague synopsis: “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence”.
However, now we have the poster adding up some information. Let’s see what does the poster for Mother! 2017 movie reveal.
First of all, the image itself is rather striking, portraying Jennifer Lawrence in a religious pose as she holds a heart that’s been ripped from her chest. Surrounded by flowers, the unnerving beauty of Lawrence in this poster falls neatly into the kind of intelligent horror that we would expect from a director like Darren Aronofsky. This poster brings some detail of the movie to the light.
From the poster, we know that it could be some kind of tribute ritual since an image of Jenifer Lawrence ripping out her heart. However, this still doesn’t shed any more light on who the “uninvited guests” described in the synopsis could be.
Did You Spot the Hidden Detail in the Poster for Mother! 2017 movie ?
Look closer, towards the bottom left of the poster, lurks a creepy face you will find. That may or may not belong to a dead person. The detail is extremely subtle, and only becomes clear if you magnify this area of the image. It’s quite a hint for threat of death. The threat could refer back to the “uninvited guests”. They may be watching Lawrence from outside her house for a period of time. However, the ghostly visage of this voyeur hints that the threat in Mother! 2017 may also be supernatural in nature. While we’re still far away from learning more specifics, this secret detail in the poster may represent our biggest clue as to the nature of Mother! 2017 movie.
There are more clues in the poster including a frog, something that looks like jewels in a flower at the bottom-left of the poster and a small block of something that resembles a Chinese character in the bottom right. What these clues mean and how they relate to the plot is harder to surmise right now, although it’s likely that their meaning will be revealed soon too.
Alongside with Mother! Jennifer Lawrence are Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer and Kristen Wiig. While the role each actor plays is still being kept under wraps, we wouldn’t be surprised if at least a few of these stars play the potentially supernatural guests.
From its stylized name to the secrecy that surrounds its production, Mother! 2017 has intrigued movie lovers from the get-go, promising thrills and chills that could provide a new benchmark for horror.
