Hope you like your Tuesday afternoons terrifying as the teaser trailer for Jennifer Lawrence’s new movie Mother! just landed.

Although the brief footage doesn’t give away plot details to the psychological thriller, it does include Lawrence slowly stepping around an eerily empty house, only disturbed by overlaying voices. Lawrence calls out “What brings you to us?”, before murmurs descend into screams of “You’re insane!” and “Murderer!”

But that’s just the sort of style you’d expect from director Darren Aronofsky, who helmed Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination in 2011.

As well as Lawrence, the cast also includes Javier Bardem (Skyfall), Michelle Pfeiffer (Dark Shadows), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and his brother, Brian Gleeson (Assassin’s Creed).

Here’s hoping we see them all in action – and not just screaming snippets – when the full trailer drops next Tuesday (8th August).
