A new poster for Darren Aronofsky's Mother just made its way online.
Let's take a look.
This is a solid one-sheet! The colors are bold, the title treatment's creepy in a hard-to-define way, and the imagery itself is...well, it's a little familiar, isn't it? Raise your hand if the first thing you thought of upon seeing this one-sheet was...
...this one-sheet for Rosemary's Baby.
Now, we're on record as praising Mother for keeping whatever secrets it has very close to the vest - it is, in fact, something we've remarked on in multiple posts, including one that went up this morning! - so we're not entirely sure what to make of this. What this poster seems to be communicating is that Mother may be taking a few cues from that classic Roman Polanski film, in which case...that's telling us quite a bit about Mother's plot.
But then, what if this is all just a sly bit of misdirection? Those of us who love reading too deeply into things were name-checking Rosemary's Baby from the moment the first trailer arrived, and it's possible this one-sheet is designed to keep us on the wrong path. It's either that, or the marketing department has really overtipped their hand on this one.
Either way, we are still crazy hyped about Mother. What do you folks think?
