Source: IMDB, Black Swan Official Site

Check it out HERE.

Directed by Darren Aronofsky (REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, THE WRESTLER, PI) and set for release on December 1st, 2010, ‘BLACK SWAN’ stars; Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Sebastian Stan, Winona Ryder, Vincent Cassel, and Barbara Hershey.

Plot summary: Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Portman), 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 (Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), 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.

'IRON MAN 2' Movie Poster

THRAL WORLD has observed that most of the movie sites have forgotten about the first viral site for IRON MAN 2 (which we posted a bit ago) amongst all the web chatter of the “first viral marketing clue” for IRON MAN 2. But the image below does appear to be going in a much more intriguing direction…

This press clipping looks like it could have been taken from the wall in the Whiplash poster. Not much is given away, but we can see that someone is following Tony Stark very closely after his Iron Man announcement at the end of the first film.

‘IRON MAN 2’ Update: JON FAVREAU And MICKEY ROURKE Speak

JON FAVREAU on TONY STARK (played by Robert Downey Jr.):

“Tony’s expected to be a role model and I don’t think he’s ready to be one. He’s under a great deal of pressure and when you’re under pressure, I think you find outlets for that.”

Probably alluding to the characters on-again / off-again battle with alcoholism as portrayed in the Iron Man comic book…

MICKEY ROURKE on what to expect from his character Whiplash:

“…my Iron Man suit weighs 23lb. It’s sort of a half-suit, with half my skin showing, with lots of Russian tattoos, because [Whiplash is just] out of a Russian-zone prison.”

Currently filming, the JON FAVREAU directed IRON MAN sequel has a release date of May 7th, 2010 and in addition to Downey Jr. stars; Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle, Garry Shandling, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Jon Favreau, and Clark Gregg.
