Hollywood superstars rarely release film posters as graphic as Jennifer Lawrence’s new offering.

Forget perfectly airbrushed glossiness: she’s depicted in an oil painting with one of her major organs hanging out.

Promoting upcoming psychological horror flick Mother! the 26-year-old star is seen standing teary-eyed in a white gown, holding out her own bloody heart that’s just been cut from her chest.

For added macabre, the film’s directer Darren Aronofsky unveiled the work – by acclaimed artist James Jean – on Mother’s Day in the US:

J-Law isn’t the film’s only A-list draw – Michelle Pfeiffer, Kristen Wiig, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Domhnall Gleeson also star in the Halloween horror that centres around “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.”

If you’re one of those people who enjoys being scared witless by big name stars, stick October 13 – the film’s release date –  in your diary.
