Michelle Pfeiffer Pressures Jennifer Lawrence To Have Kids In New Mother! Clip

Michelle Pfeiffer is trying to pressure Jennifer Lawrence into having kids in the newest clip from Darren Aronofsky's upcoming horror thriller mother!. The movie stars Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a couple whose peaceful existence is threatened when unexpected guests– including Pfeiffer's character– invade their home.

The clip begins with Pfeiffer's character staring directly into the camera, asking Lawrence (much to her chagrin) why she is against having kids. "I saw how you reacted earlier," Pfeiffer says. "I know what it's like when you're just starting out and you think you have all the time in the world. You know, you're not going to be so young forever. Have kids. Then you'll be creating something together." 

The movie's creepy first trailer implied that the home will play a big part in Lawrence's character's journey, and this clip implies that as well, with Pfeiffer saying that the house is just "setting," something which Lawrence doesn't seem very happy to hear. However, her reaction could be from something else, with the clip ending with Pfeiffer coming close to a shocked looking Lawrence and saying, "Oh, you do want them." It then goes through a quick glimpse at the creepy imagery shown in the movie's trailer.

Aronofsky has said that the whole of mother! is trying to capture a single emotion, so this clip could have something to do with the movie's bigger goals. However, it's not entirely clear at this point how it fits into the film, and what will happen through Lawrence's character throughout. Still, considering the movie's title, it's pretty easy to see how children could play into all of it. 

While not much is known about the plot of mother!, Lawrence has said that the film was very stressful to work on, with the crew building her a "Kardashian tent" full of clips of her favorite reality show stars to help her destress on set. Lawrence said one scene made her hyperventilate so hard that she actually dislocated a rib. "The themes are just huge," the actress has said of the film. "I can't use the word I want to use, but the movie is so unique." 

Ed Harris also stars in mother!, which hits theaters on Sept. 15.
