    Jennifer Lawrence never fails to make front page news. So we shouldn’t be surprised that her latest role has sparked a lot of chatter on the internet over the last couple of days, and we have to say, we’re very intrigued.

    The new film Mother!, which is directed by the award-winning director Darren Aronofsky, will see Jennifer back in the driving seat, alongside Spanish actor Javier Bardem, who is also about to star in the newly revamped Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

    Although the psychological thriller isn’t due out until October 13th (we’re guessing it must be a freaky one if it’s out for Halloween), the newly released film poster has already garnered hundreds of fan theories and speculation online.

    Darren Aronofsky (known for the surrealist films Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream), is the writer AND producer of the new film Mother! So far, the only details we have about the plot is that is centres on a couple’s relationship, which is put to the test ‘when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.’

    Sounds interesting… But to be honest, we’ll watch anything if Jennifer Lawrence is starring in it.

    It sounds like we may need a cushion to hide behind, but we’ll do it for J-Law…
