First Look at Portman and Kunis in Black Swan!
A psychological thriller set in the world of New York City Ballet, Black Swanstars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis).
Black Swan takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.
The film also stars Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder.
"The cast and crew of Black Swan are both excited and humbled by the festival's invitation. It is an honor to walk the great red carpet on the Lido and we are excited to premier our film to the wonderful audiences in Venice," said Aronofsky.
"What an honor and privilege it is to be selected as the opening night film," said Fox Searchlight Presidents Stephen Gilula and Nancy Utley. "We could not have asked for a better launch for Darren and 'Black Swan' than the Venice International Film Festival."
