If you haven’t already viewed the Album of the Week, you’ll find that the gallery has been belatedly updated with HQ photos of Natalie at the A Tale of Love and Darkness premiere during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival last month. Thanks to silkecut.
Two weeks late (though better late than never), but a gallery has been added for Natalie’s appearance at the Ballet National de Paris Opening Season Gala at Opera Garnier in Paris. Thanks to Iktriad and silkecut.
Well that didn’t take long at it, did it? The Weistein’s involvement seems to be moving things along with the troubled Jane Got A Gun as the first poster arrives. It’s Natalie. She has a gun. Job done?
Rachel will hopefully post some new Planetarium set photos today but in the meantime, here are some other odds and ends from earlier in the week.
– Let’s begin with two videos of Natalie filming on Monday night. Thanks to Belerofonte and Kitten.
More photos have emerged from the Film Spring Open and by clicking the thumnbail below you will see them at the official Film Spring Open Facebook page.
A big thanks to Belerofonte and Kitten.
As expected, Natalie is in Poland this weekend for the Film Spring Open. She was invited by her cinematographer on ATOLAD, Slawomir Idziak, and you can see the them together by clicking the thumb below and going to the Daily Mail where they have many more photos.
Here is another great photo from inside the auditorium.
Natalie attended the opening season gala for the National Ballet of Paris last night. Given the event you won’t be surprised to know that Benjamin was there as well. Thanks to Belerofonte.
Natalie is back in front of the camera again for Rebecca Zlotowski’s Planetarium, Natalie’s first French language film. Filming began this week and Belerofonte found the first photo from the set.
Another portrait from TIFF has arrived courtesy of W Magazine. Different outfit, same gorgeous result. You can’t go wrong with a black and white Natalie head shot. Thanks to Belerofonte.
While in Toronto Natalie did a video interview for InStyle, People and Entertainment Weekly. Alongside the video interview, further down, they also took a couple stunning black and white portraits.
Now for the first video interview segment from Entertainment Weekly.
Finally, another video clip and behind the scenes photo can be found at InStyle.
Thanks to Belerofonte.
Ah, blessed weekend. I’m going to use it to try and get on top of all the latest Natalie news. Thankfully I did hear from Rachel and she is very much alive, but might not be able to help on the site for a few more weeks.
So, the image albums are not going to have her usual polish, but something is better than nothing, right? Here is Natalie twirling around in Paris from earlier in the week for an upcoming Dior ad.
Natalie attending the premiere of her feature directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness at TIFF last night. She wore Lanvin and I’ve set up a temp album for you guys to browse. Thanks to Belerofonte.
Natalie landed in Toronto in time to attend the fundraising soiree and a talk inside with Darren Aronofsky at TIFF. I set up a little temp gallery, which you can view by clicking the thumbnail below, and hopefully Rachel will return soon to properly fill it out for you guys. Thanks to Belerofonte.
Argh, struggling to keep up with Rachel AWOL and work stacking up, so let’s do a post that merges a bunch of items that could very well have made up their own posts.
– First up, Natalie was snapped filming a new Dior video in Paris on Tuesday. Based on this photo alone, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this will be the best commercial ever made.
– From Paris Natalie will of course be heading to TIFF in Toronto and it sounds like as soon as TIFF is over she will be straight back to Paris to film Planetarium (‘Le Soeurs Barlow’) for Rebecca Zlotowski. According to the casting call, the film will shoot from mid-September through to mid-November.
– Finally, moon-walking back to the TIFF mention where Natalie will be premiering A Tale of Love and Darkness, a new review for the film has arrived from The Jerusalem Post and it’s incredibly positive. They call the film “triumphant” and claim that Natalie gives her best ever performance.
Thanks to Amo, Belerofonte and Nina.
Let’s kick off the week with a few A Tale of Love and Darkness news items.
– Tablet have a really nice write up of the film’s premiere in Jerusalem and woven in is a review of sorts – a rather positive one at that. Here’s hoping that when it plays at TIFF the reactions are a bit less neutral than those that came out of Cannes.
Though A Tale of Love and Darkness received mixed reviews when it was first screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May, it’s an ambitious undertaking on Portman’s part, and the result is often quite beautiful.
– And finally, a new photo of Natalie and Amos Oz on the set of the film. This was tweeted by Oz’s daughter, Fania.
Natalie’s writing and directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, had its big premiere in Jerusalem last night. Sporting a rather uncomfortable looking “Love” necklace, she met Israeli president, Shimon Peres, and posed with the cast for a photocall. Click the image below to view more from The Daily Mail.
TIFF is around the corner, and so is the North American introduction to Natalie Portman’s first work as a director. Her film A Tale of Love and Darkness is deeply connected to her Israeli roots, and she had taken the time to open up about her personal project.
She talked to Yedioth Ahronoth about Israel, her new film, motherhood, politics and all of that good stuff.
Natalie was in New York City today, where she made an appearance at the hit Broadway musical Hamilton and posed for photos backstage with Trevor Noah and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda at The Richard Rogers Theater. Hit the preview to view the new photo set at the gallery.
Thanks to Belerofonte for the finds.
