Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that Black Swan will come to DVD and Blu-ray on March 29, 2011.
“Black Swan” follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in the New York City Ballet trying to make it to the top. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), also impresses Leroy and becomes Nina´s competition. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly with her innocence and grace, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan with her fiery personality. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

It worked out too perfectly that best friends Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis were both nominated at the Golden Globes for Black Swan. Unfortunately Mila has been upstaged at the Oscars and didn’t receive a Best Supporting Actress nomination. Her director Darren Aronofsky says he’s “bummed.”
Darren earned a best director nomination for Black Swan, but told The Hollywood Reporter he was “bummed” his castmembers Mila, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder and Vincent Cassel were not nominated as well.
Still, Natalie’s Best Actress nomination was cause for celebration and said it’s “fantastic.”
The nominees were announced morning, but Darren took his mind of that by building Legos with his son in his NYC apartment.
“I was superstitious,” he explained. “I knew it was this morning and I tried to ignore it and block it out.”
How will he celebrate? Well, he’s going to Florida to celebrate his mother’s birthday!
“She was the first person to call me and I’m sure she is going to be delighted to show me off to all of her friends in Florida,” he said. “So maybe that’s when it’ll sink in.”
Jason Solomons meets Black Swan star Mila Kunis to discuss her award-winning role opposite alongside Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman. Film Weekly gets twinkle-toed with her. She was asked about Black Swan in many questions so listen full audio interview below.
IGN Movies spoke to the star of Black Swan “Mila Kunis” on the horrors of becoming a ballerina. Watch the full interview on the video below.
Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller “Black Swan” may have garnered praise for its superb acting, artsy cinematography and intense portrayal of the professional ballet world, but there is no denying that there is one memorable scene most moviegoers just can’t stop talking about: the raunchy lesbian love scene between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
And while Kunis accepts that the hot and heavy bedroom moment is bound to cause tongues to wag, she does wish audiences would look beyond those controversial couple of minutes.
“It’s one of those things where we shot it, we did it, and you hope people walk away from the film with something else, other than just the memory of that two minute scene,” she told FOX411′s Pop Tarts at the W Magazine Golden Globes Party on Friday night. “But it is what it is, so you can’t deny it.”
On that note, we couldn’t help but ask who “acted” better in those intimate scenes – Portman or her co-star in the upcoming racy comedy “Friends With Benefits,” Justin Timberlake.
“Oh I’m not even going to touch that,” she told us with a laugh earlier in the evening while at the 16th Annual VH1 Critics Choice Awards, where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

Nonetheless, it is highly doubtful that Kunis was too distraught she lost out on the award to “The Fighter” star Melissa Leo. The seemingly cool 27-year-old admitted that not only does she not take the whole “Hollywood Awards Season” schtick particularly seriously, but she doesn’t even read reviews, articles, or any stories pertaining to her films – regardless of whether they’re good or bad.
“Everyone has the right to their opinion and no one is wrong or right,” Kunis added. “So I just don’t read anything.”
