Black Swan – Trailer Dissection

My excitement for Black Swan was pretty high thanks to the combination of Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Darren Aronofsky and this trailer has me fully intrigued, and that’s mostly because it confuses the hell out of me. That’s not to say the trailer doesn’t cover most of the plot of the film, it just doesn’t quite make sense at the end.

Watching the trailer you see Portman start off a star who becomes increasingly threatened by Kunis before things turn sexual and she goes more than a little mental. To avoid a criminal amount of typos what follows can only be described as a series of screenshots from the trailer. Because sometimes just watching a trailer isn’t enough.


And now you don’t need to see the film! Unless you want to find out if Portman really is turning into some kind of mutant swan.
