The only flick in theaters right now that I even remotely want to see is Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN, and I actually want to see that shite pretty damn bad! Now after checking out this new VFX demo reel we've got over in our videos section dare I say I want to see it even more?
If you scroll directly below you can check the video out for yourself, which obviously sports some of the VFX work in BLACK SWAN. Don't take my word for it though, just scroll on down below and check it our for yourself!
BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina, a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice.
But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily, who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
BLACK SWAN stars the gorgeous duo of Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis (below) along with Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder, and Benjamin Millepied. Now it's still currently in theaters but that doesn't mean you can't pre-order the DVD and Blu-Ray HERE and HERE respectively.Though an official release date has yet to drop we'll be sure to let you all know when that is as soon as we find out!
