Note: As a sort of post mortem to the Oscars, I will be covering all 10 of the Best Picture nominees and their trailers. And when I’m done, we can finally all STFU about the Oscars.

Black Swan is one of those films that grabs you by the balls and never lets you go. Think 127 Hours is intense? Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I liter-ally let out a sigh of relief when the film
was over…but in a good way.

The trailer works very much in the same way. Like the film, it starts out innocently enough. But then it gets more and more crazy and finally descends into madness. All to the sounds of Clint Mansell’s twisted (yet brilliant) score. Black Swan is another trailer that isn’t just a good marketing tool; it’s good film period.

The trailer:
