ACL Video

Thanks to Garcy for this nice, albeit blurry, find of Natalie and Fassbender filmed while on the side of the stage at ACL music festival this past weekend.

As a South African I have to apologize for Die Antwoord yelping away on stage. Can’t be easy to work with them in the background. Natalie should have hopped on stage and shown Ninja some real rapping skills.

Ice Cream Mondays

Natalie took a break from filming and treated the family to some ice cream yesterday. It’s great that she’s able to work and spend time with her family, and hopefully she’ll be able to do the same when she heads to the UK for Thor 2.

Aleph is very visible in these shots so you know the drill.

It was another busy day for Natalie yesterday, as she filmed with Michael Fassbender at ACL Music Festival and then with Boyd Holbrook at a church.

Check out the gallery below.

Today’s tidbits were dropped from 128000 feet into your living rooms.

– Let’s begin with this new Benjamin interview from The Independent. There are a couple Natalie mentions, including a quote that indicates that they seriously considered having another baby right after Aleph. The decision to wait probably saved the lives of many an impatient Natalie fan :-P

– Natalie now drives a BlueTec Diesel Mercedes, which is apparently very economic. Is it as economic as her old Prius? I don’t know and cars bore me to tears so I’ll let others work that one out.

– This tweeter is apparently going to be making a necklace for a shoot with Natalie. She’s in Austin so maybe it’s not a shoot but rather part of a look for the Malick film?

– Finally, remember that song about Natalie’s tapeworm? Well it’s gone viral and the song writer is getting hate mail from Natalie fans because of it.

I wonder if those angry fans have heard the song? If you can make it more than 5 words you’re doing well.

It’s news items like this that really make wish we were still doing the NP.COMic :-/

Malick Casting Net

Filipe found a number of tweets, which shed more details on the cast of Terrence Malicks Untitled film. The ACL music festival is this weekend and with the film using the music scene as a backdrop, Terrence Malick and his cameras are once again on hand.

So let’s go through everything…

Emma Stone was spotted with Ryan Gosling. Fran “Florence and the Machine” Welch was also seen, and there is a photo showing her, Gosling, Rooney Mara (maybe Emma Stone?) and Terrence Malick.

And here’s another photo confirming that they were filming.

Where was Natalie in all this? Well, dancing by the side of the stage of course. And not taking photos with fans.

A big thanks to Toto20 for finding a bigger text free version of that lovely Elle France photo.

Thor 2 Synopsis

It’s hard to get a really exciting synopsis, which is why I never get too excited or dismayed when reading one. That said, the official synopsis for Thor: The Dark World has dropped and zzzzzzzzzzz.

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

We’ll be able to see if the film is a bit more exciting when it gets released in just over a years time.

Paining Wallpaper Combo

We’ve got a new contributor today – the unforgettably named Warballoon. He created a digital painting of Natalie and then gave it the wallpaper treatment.

Hopefully this balloon gets to come home from the battlefield and contribute some more fanart down the line.

It’s time for a new poll and I’m really glad I thought of this one.

Knight Of Cups – LA, dark haired beach running Natalie, Bale, the movie business, “a story of a man, temptations, celebrity, and excess”…

Formerly titled Lawless – Austin, blonde haired big breasted short skirted Natalie, Gosling and Fassbender, the music business, “two intersecting love triangles, the story of sexual obsession and betrayal”…

So based on what we know, if you could choose only one, which Malick film would it be?

The either/or Malick poll

As for the Jackie Kennedy poll, almost half of the voters thought it would be a great role for Natalie. That said, all the other voting options received support so feelings are quite varied on this one.

Check out the full results after the jump.

Just heading out the door but I wanted to let you guys know that Rachel updated the new Malick set photos a few hours ago. Quite a few more great shots, like this smoking little pose.

While I’m at it, Filipe spotted this little Texan tidbit.

Obviously the Lone Star State doesn’t care about Hollywood stars. Dozens of snooty art elites visiting Marfa, Tex., for Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation Weekend “took their sweet time” freeing a table at Cochineal — a popular local eatery, while Natalie Portman, her husband Benjamin Millepied and their son Aleph were forced to wait forever.

There are enough wow moments in this set of photos, from the Terrence Malick film set, that it’s hard to know what to focus on…more short skirts, the trashy looking, Natalie and Fassbender, tattooo guy, boobs…definitely looks like a very different role for Natalie and here’s hoping she can pull it off.

Malick Tidbits

Garcy found a couple news worthy updates from the set of Terrence Malick’s new film. The first is another set photo, although Natalie’s back is turned and it’s a bit blurry. I think we can already glean some characteristics from the character she’s playing, such as she has great legs and she knows it.

Then we have a tweet that might be considered a minor plot spoiler to some. It’s definitely something that many people have been hoping to see for a long long time so, having said that, try not to click here and reveal the tweet :-P

French Glamour

Natalie is featured in the November issue of French Glamour and includes another new photo from that great Auerbach shoot. I’m including all the pages so our French readers can enjoy, and hopefully report back if there’s anything new within the text.

Prometheus Concept

Prometheus got a bit of a hammering from people who felt the film didn’t deliver on it’s promise, and a lot of the criticisms I agree with. However, I still loved being in that world and there were enough highs to make me personally look past a lot of the problems.

One central issue I struggled to get past was Noomi Rapace as Dr. Shaw. I didn’t think she was up to the role and I wistfully remembered when Natalie was supposedly being offered the part.

So it was cool to be reminded of that today when Natnat pointed me in the direction of some Prometheus concept art. Looks a little familiar, right? :-P

I know that you guys, myself included, can’t wait to see Michael Fassbender team up with Natalie in Jane Got A Gun. As it turns out, they might be on camera sooner than that, as a new photo from the currently shooting, and still untitled, Terrence Malick film shows Michael Fassbender and Ryan Gosling filming together.

The Playlist has all the info, which includes a statement that this film and Knight of Cups have INTERSECTING love triangles. I’m not sure if that is a statement of fact or, because of the similar themes, cast and back to back nature of the two films, whether it’s just a reasonable guess. I think it’s the latter as we haven’t heard anything official about the films being linked, although at this point it would be a bit surprising if they aren’t.

The Professional Drawing

Filipe found a ridiculously impressive and realistic drawing of Leon and Mathilda on Twitter. The artist is Barry Jazz Finnegan.

British Elle

Just when you think you’ve read every quote from Natalie’s Paris Dior junket, a few more new quotes arrive in British Elle. The scan isn’t the best but you should be able to make out the text.

“Fashion has put me in some strange situations. I was being fitted for a Christian Dior couture dress last year at my husband Benjamin Millepied’s house.

“His whole family were sitting there, just having a cup of tea, while all these amazing artisans worked around me to create this absolute incredible dress, that was pretty surreal.”

Another day of set photos from the still untitled Terrence Malick film. In this new batch, Natalie cleans windows with Holly Hunter and rocks a pair of denim shorts.

Family Stroll

Natalie, Benjamin, Aleph and Whiz went out for a stroll in an Austin park yesterday. Not crazy about Natalie’s glasses, which make her look like an insect. Women’s sunglasses really are nuts these days.

Please note that Aleph is visible in a lot of the photos.

There are some great new set photos from the new Terrence Malick film (and he’s visible in a few shots) shooting in Austin, and Holly Hunter (The Piano, Thirteen) is the first of, I’m sure, many new names that we can add to the cast list.

Thanks to Filipe for the heads up.
