The official trailer for “Mother!,” Academy Award-winning director Darren Aronofsky’s most secretive project to date, has just been released.

Aronofsky is known for his dark and distressing films, but based on the trailer alone, “mother!” could surpass Aronofsky’s previous films as his darkest yet. 

Paramount released a chilling teaser for “Mother!” July 31, that gave a glimpse into the dark psychological thriller centered around a couple that is visited by uninvited guests.  

The official trailer released Tuesday morning builds on the ominous vibe of the teaser, and provides a better look into the couple’s dynamic, and the unusual behaviour of the unwanted house guests. 

And from what we can glean from the trailer, we can probably expect to see amazing performances from the stars of the film, that include Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer.   

“Mother!” opens in theatres September 15.
