Darren Aronofsky Responds to 'mother!' Getting an F CinemaScore Grade

Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky attend an AMPAS screening of their movie mother! at the MoMA on Thursday (September 21) in New York City.

The film has been very controversial and it received an “F” CinemaScore grade from opening night audiences last weekend.

Darren is now responding to the reaction from audiences.

“What’s interesting about that is, like, how if you walk out of this movie are you not going to give it an ‘F?’ It’s a punch. It’s a total punch,” Darren said in a new Q&A (via THR).

“I realize that we were excited by that,” he added. “We wanted to make a punk movie and come at you. And the reason I wanted to come is because I was very sad and I had a lot of anguish and I wanted to express it. Filmmaking is such a hard journey. People are constantly saying no to you. And to wake up every morning and get out of bed and to face all those ‘no’s, you have to be willing to really believe in something.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Brock Collection bra top and dress.

Paramount Exec Defends 'mother!' & Darren Aronofsky's Vision

The new movie mother! did not get a great reaction from opening weekend audiences and became one of the rare films to ever receive an “F” grade from CinemaScore.

Now, an executive at Paramount Pictures is defending the movie and director Darren Aronofsky‘s vision.

“This movie is very audacious and brave,” Paramount worldwide president of marketing and distribution Megan Colligan told THR. “You are talking about a director at the top of his game, and an actress at the top her game. They made a movie that was intended to be bold. Everyone wants original filmmaking, and everyone celebrates Netflix when they tell a story no one else wants to tell. This is our version. We don’t want all movies to be safe. And it’s okay if some people don’t like it.”

While audiences did not connect with Jennifer Lawrence‘s new movie, critics had a favorable opinion. The film has a 69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
