ENID LONDON'S DOUBLE FEATURE.

Got a couple of free slots in your movie diary? Well, you’re in luck: two of the directors looked after by ENID London have released trailers for upcoming films, namely Darren Aronofsky’s ‘mother!’ and Joseph Kahn’s ‘Bodied’. Let’s take a peek at these coming attractions...

First up is 'Mother!' - Darren Aronofsky’s domestic nightmare. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem play a couple who have found their dream house, only for two strangers (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer) to mount an insidious home invasion.


Academy Award-winner Lawrence is no stranger to psychological turmoil, while Bardem, Harris, and Pfeiffer ensure 'Mother!' is a starry ordeal. Aronofsky’s teaser is all horror-tuned violins, carnal tension, and diabolical meanings. Home sweet home? Forget about it.

In ‘Bodied’, director Joseph Kahn opts for in-your-face terror… specifically having your identity torn to shreds in a rap battle. The title refers to the act of being crushed by your opponent - a fate which befalls M C Goggles in brutal fashion. Best stick to karaoke, mate.


There’s nowhere to hide in this arena. Rarely has Rick Moranis’s name been mentioned with such venom, though such wicked barbs carry wry undertones. And as Eminem is an executive producer on this project, any similarity to '8 Mile' may not be entirely coincidental.

Following the success of Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’, Kahn' film looks to examine modern race relations through a similar prism. Cultural appropriation, class privilege… ’Bodied’ looks to explore heavyweight themes with lyrical incisions.
