Fan Photo

As we anxiously refresh the internet, waiting for some photographic crumbs to emerge from the set of Thor 2, we can take some relief from this fan photo from the Untitled Malick film.

The Tumblr account says that it’s Natalie and Christian Bale in Austin, but I want to push past that joke to simply ask, just how short is that girl next to Natalie? No wonder Natalie looks so happy in the photo – she looks positively amazonian.

First Thor Set Photo

Of Natalie at least. Okay, her back is turned and we can’t say with absolute certainty that it’s her…but I think the Tumblr that published the photos can be trusted as they didn’t seem in any doubt with the write up and it certainly looks like her hair (back to black(ish), baby!).




she’s really really tiny

apologies that it’s only from behind, but it felt really kinda rude to just be point blank taking pictures of her from so close idk

yeah and also she’s carrying book so either she likes reading or Jane is doing sciencey stuff

Thor in London

As the tweets in the previous update noted, Thor: The Dark World was indeed filming in Greenwich earlier today. Chris Hemsworth and his hair cape were snapped in some candid photos (courtesy of, but none of Natalie so far. Unfortunately for us Nat fans, this previous news update suggests that most of the remaining principal photography will be shot indoors.

Thor 2 Filming

With Natalie work on the Untitled Malick film now complete, it was just a matter of time before we got some proper confirmation that she is in London for Thor 2 filming. That time is now!

Via various twitter accounts…

Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman on Greenwich campus?!?

Filming THOR 2 in my Uni today, I must get a pic with Chris Hemsworth or Natalie Portman or Loki or Eedris Alba #WatchThisSpace

Natalie Portman at my uni filming a new Thor film

So Natalie Portman and Chris hemsworth are filming at my uni #excitingshit

I guess it won’t be long till we get some on set photos but until then, it would be nice if one of these sightings might mention what Natalie’s hair colour is.

Are you guys hoping she’s still blonde or back to black?

Last week people asked why I kept making jokes about Natalie Portman and Rooney Mara being the same person. These new photos of “Natalie” should explain it.

@MozartsCoffee Thanks to Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling for the quick film shoot here at Mozart’s tonight!!!!

They’re both women. They’re both white. They’re both short. That’s where the similarities end as far as I’m concerned. If anything, Rooney looks like a young Winona Ryder.

Eden Liao found a better version of that new Natalie photo that Rachel posted last night. I had a different poll idea but I think I’ll hold it off a few days and make this photo the subject.

It’s pretty simple. Click the thumb below. Absorb the Natalie. And then…


As for the Star Wars 7 poll, I expected a healthy spread of votes and for a lot of excitement for a new SW film. What I didn’t expect was so much love for George Lucas.

Personally, I think whatever skills as a storyteller and filmmaker he once had, they are now a long long time ago. He was the weight around the ankles of the new films and while I don’t know if the new one will be good or not, I think the chances of a positive outlook have increased 10 fold.

But please put me in my place in the comments section.

And check out the full results after the jump…

The Music Of Untitled

The currently filming Untitled Terrence Malick film has a backdrop of the music scene in Austin, and because of that the fantastic music site, Pitchfork, has put together an update stitching together all the info they could glean about the project.

I thought it might be interesting to some to see their breakdown of the bands and artists who may appear in the film…

- The Black Lips, joined on stage by Mara and Kilmer.
– Alan Palomo of Neon Indian reportedly shot scenes for the film
– Fleet Foxes, who were joined by Christan Bale on bongos at last year’s Austin City Limits
– Arcade Fire and Iron & Wine, who were also reportedly filmed at last year’s Austin City Limits
– Die Antwoord, who were on stage at this year’s Austin City Limits while Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender reportedly shot a scene for the film.
– Portman was also spotted at Iggy and the Stooges’ set at this year’s ACL.
– YACHT and Big Freedia, who were filmed at last year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest.
-You can see Gosling and Mara hanging in the background in this “behind the scenes” video for Lykke Li’s episode of PBS’ “Austin City Limits” TV show.
– Patti Smith, who allegedly serenaded Mara during a recent Austin show.
– Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine was spotted with Gosling and Mara at this year’s ACL.
– Tegan and Sara, who played the set immediately following.

Side On

Thanks to Angelina, we have finally added a decent sized version of the striking 2005 InStyle photo. It’s still not HQ but give it another 7 years and we might have that for you guys.

Toto20 found a nice article/interview with Natalie in the October issue of Mindfood. It’s mostly a mix of old quotes but certainly well worth a read. You can read it in full here and below is a little excerpt.

“I’m trying to be bolder in some of my creative choices and be less self-censoring,” Portman explains. “I want to be ambitious and do interesting work but at the same time not limit myself to projects that are arty 
or auteurish. I thrive on heavy, dramatic roles, 
but sometimes you need to escape a bit and try other things.”

Untitled Tidbits

All I want for Christmas is the Untitled Malick film to be given a title. I’m so tired of calling it the “other Malick film” or “formerly titled Lawless”.

While Malick ponders that, a poster called Gorghast, over on Hollywood Elsewhere, clarified a few things about the project. He sounds like he might know what he’s talking about.

He says that Natalie’s role in Knight Of Cups is supporting, which we knew anyway. But he says that the second film is an ensemble piece (and called it “Closer-like”) with Natalie, Fassbender, Mara and Gosling being the core stars. He thinks that their parts are too crucial and intertwined that none of those actors will be cut from the final edit.

Sounds good, although maybe he underestimates what Malick can do in the editing bay. Adrian Brody thought he was the star of The Thin Red Line and barely showed up in the final version.

Finally, he also confirms what we felt to be true, that Natalie has finished her work on the project.

We haven’t done one of these for a really long time, partly because they always came hand in hand with our comics. The comic strip is, unfortunately, dead and very likely not coming back. As much as I would like to write up something about Natalie and Rooney Mara confusion, the ship has sailed. And sunk. And Matt was on board.

But with the end of the year rapidly approaching I thought I would ask for those of you who visit the site on a regular basis and who have some extra cash, to consider dropping a donation via our paypal link. Or doing your shopping via the Amazon link below.
Thanks to one and all.

Val Kilmer Joins Malick

There were some rumblings about Val Kilmer possibly joining the Untitled Malick film, well those rumblings are now a roar. The roar of Val playing a singer and the roar of his on stage chainsaw at Fun Fun Fun Fest over the weekend.

Also, I think we can confirm that Rooney Mara is playing a musician as that’s her with the guitar. Or maybe it’s Natalie…hard to tell ;-)

Natalie On The Radio

The elections are on Tuesday and Natalie is still trying to do her part by making a radio appearance and encouraging people to vote for President Obama.

There was a limited amount of time to talk so when the host tried to get her to talk about herself and film stuff, she quickly shot him down and got the topic back onto politics.

With the big Star Wars news this week, I thought it would be worth putting together a poll. There’s a slight Natalie spin on it, nudging the poll into on topic territory.

The Star Wars 7 poll

Now for the results of our Malick follow up poll. You guys were more interested in Untitled than you were the other Malick-Natalie film, Knight Of Cups. So we wanted to know why?

The overwhelming reason, with almost half the votes, was that Natalie looks like she has a bigger part in Untitled. To see how the other answers panned out, hit the jump for the full results.

It’s time for another round of mini updates. Have at it.

– A little known actor tweeted that he was going to be shooting with Natalie for Malick. Could this mean she’s not in the UK? Did the actor just assume that because Natalie is in the film she’d be on set? Did he confuse Rooney Mara for Natalie? Or is he just talking out of his ass? Based on his background image, that last option is looking a good bet.

– Now for a creepy list from Complex Magazine – the 20 Hottest Virgins from Film and TV. Natalie makes the list, but I won’t spoil where and which character. Okay, it’s not Mathilda so you can all breathe easy on that one.

– Finally, Aurore found a Natalie film montage that was made with a lot of skill. Bonus points for not including anything from Where The Heart Is ;-)

Jane Got A Gun Info

The Lynne Ramsay directed Michael Fassbender co-starring Western was on the cards to be Natalie’s next film and Collider seem to think that production kicks off in February.

Even more good news comes in the form of a fairly detailed plot synopsis for the film, which backs up the title’s promise that Natalie is going to kick some cowboy ass.

Young and pretty with a soul of pure steel, Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) is a good girl married to one of the worst baddies in town. When her husband Bill turns against his own gang, the vicious Bishop Boys, and returns home barely alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane knows it’s time to ditch the dress for a pair of pants and strap on her own gun. As the relentless leader John Bishop gears up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her old love Dan Frost (Michael Fassbender) – a gunslinger whose hatred for Bill is only slightly overshadowed by his love for Jane.
