Misleading Movie Trailer update – Black Swan

Quick post about Black Swan as I noticed today there is a new UK TV trailer out, clearly following the recent BAFTA and Oscar nominations, which is very different to the trailer that was out a few weeks back.

Can’t find them on YouTube, but the original UK TV trailer painted it like a psychological thriller/horror about split personalities, which I understand is pretty much the gist of the film.

This new trailer features much more brightly lit scenes, and features the dance much more heavily, clearly looking to position it nearer to Fame or Strictly Ballroom than Carrie or Blair Witch etc…

Has the film suddenly changed overnight? Doubt it – this is a film by the guy that made Requiem for a Dream, widely recognised as the most depressing film ever made. If a Glee fan goes by accident their head might explode.
