Benjamin Millepied, the choreographer for Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, has teamed up with Canadian duo Zed’s Dead for their official “Demons” music video. The video is an homage to Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller”. You can watch it below.
Italian symphonic metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse has released a music video for “The Forsaking”, which comes from their latest album Agony (Amazon). The video is a mixture of Black Swan and Romeo And Juliet, albeit with a slight twist. Directed by Salvatore Perrone & Fleshgod Apocalypse, the video tells the tale of two dancers who seem to be at odds. The female then dances with a mysterious figure who disappears, but not before poisoning her with a kiss. From there…well, I won’t ruin the ending for you. Check it out below! READ MORE
Per Variety, Lionsgate has inked a development deal with director George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), attaching him to helm and oversee a rewrite of social media thriller XOXO.
The original script, by Mark Heyman (Black Swan), has been around for a while now so it’s good to see this project gathering some steam. Nolfi will supervise a rewrite by Heyman, which sounds like some kind of strict overbearing thing until you realize it’s just the natural collaboration between a writer and director that happens on any project.
Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain, Black Swan) and Michael London (Sideways) will produce XOXO through their respective shingles Protozoa Pictures and Groundswell Productions.
The film is described as Fatal Attraction for the digital age and “follows an on-the-rise exec who’s engaged to be married but enjoys flirting online. He meets an alluring woman on Facebook and the two begin a virtual relationship, but the protag soon discovers that his Internet romance is seeping into his actual life in a deadly way.
With Erica Ash and Ashley Tisdale already announced for Scary Movie 5, our insider reveals to us that an offer has been made to Craig Bierko (pictured inside) to return this time as “Dan”. In Scary Movie 4 he played Tom Ryan, a spoof on Tom Cruise’s character from War of the Worlds.
Malcolm Lee will helm the latest franchise installment where Ash will play a friend and rival dancer to Tisdale’s character.
Scary Movie 5 will spoof: Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours.
David Zucker, who wrote and directed both Scary Movie 3 and 4, will also be returning to co-write and produce the fifth installment alongside Lee.
Still no word on if Anthony Anderson, Regina Hall and Kevin Hart are officially returning, as we previously reported. READ MORE
After a more than satisfying character piece and study on the subject of artistic peaking and anxiety, Darren Aronofsky returns to the world of performers with Black Swan, a companion piece to The Wrestler that covers similar ground in some extraordinarily different ways. In some respects, it’s a prequel to the Mickey Rourke starrer; instead of focusing on the death and rebirth of an entertainer’s career, we’re given a glimpse into the life of a struggling up-and-comer dying to start one. It’s true that many films have covered the same subject, but I guarantee you’ve never seen it presented in quite the same way.

But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions.
Arriving in New York and Los Angeles this theaters, before opening wide on December 17 is Darren Aronofsky’s masterful Black Swan, which could easily be described as a companion piece to The Wrestler. David Harley raves about the film: “Most impressive about the film, however, is the script by Mark Heyman and Andres Heinz, which is comprised of everything from psychological and body horror to sexual awakenings and self-preservation.” Click the title above to read the entire review and check back to write your own.
We were among the lucky few to catch the very first screenings of Darren ‘s Black Swan back in September. Described as a psychological thriller with “ghosts”, I expected it to be more of a horror movie than it was. With that said, it’s a pretty intense movie that’s both unsettling and skin crawling — but in the end it’s hard to call it “horror”. Still, it’s a sublime movie that deserves the recognition, therefore I’m sharing with you Yahoo’s latest clip that features star Natalie Portman showing off her “dark side”. In theaters Friday, Swan centers on a veteran ballerina (Portman) who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer, with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance. But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions.
A new one sheet was released from Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller Black Swan that features star Natalie Portman as the dark “Black Swan” in her stage play that you’ll catch in theaters on December 3. The pic centers on a veteran ballerina (Portman) who finds herself locked in a competitive situation with a rival dancer, with the stakes and twists increasing as the dancers approach a big performance. But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions. Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel and Winona Ryder also star. On a side note, we’d like to inform you that Portman has refuted BD’s involvement in the junket, so don’t expect any interviews. Am I pissed? No, it’s awesome to know that our website named freaked her out, along with Halle Berry back when Gothika hit theaters. The difference is this: Black Swan is an amazing film. Nuff said.
