Jackie video interview

 
There is a total lack of news in Natland the past few days. So while we wait for events, here’s an old (but interesting) interview with Natalie, on the occasion of the premiere of Jackie a few months ago:

Oldie but Goodie

 
It’s always nice to remember old times, when Natalie was really young and spontaneous. We can retrieve a little gem from 1999 on the Oprah Winfrey Network YouTube channel: a TV appearance by Natalie and Susan Sarandon promoting “Anywhere but Here”. It’s really fun to watch it after so many years…

Enjoy:

A few weeks ago we learned that Natalie would have a guest star appearance on “Angie Tribeca,” the sitcom starring Rashida Jones. Well, IndieWire has a review on the first chapters and they reveal the role of Natalie in one of them:

Only a few episodes later, Portman is handed a different, if similar, challenge. The outspoken women’s rights activist is given the role of Mrs. Kraft, a NASA scientist who looks and acts like a ’60s housewife. The fact that she’s not given a first name is as intentional as her assumption that Angie works for Detective Tanner (DJ Cole) simply because he’s a man. Her constant smile, perfect makeup, and bursting baby belly all lend Mrs. Kraft an air of domesticity and her period appropriate surroundings further enforce the patriarchal era of NASA’s heyday.

Knowing how she really feels, one can only imagine Portman would be eager to satirize the sexist trappings of our past by emphasizing their modern parallels. But her line delivery is in keeping with Mrs. Kraft’s reality, not the social commentary her character offers to the audience. When Mrs. Kraft refuses to give a freshly baked cookie to Angie, offering her “a Fresca and a diet pill” instead, Portman whispers the line as if Mrs. Kraft would be embarrassed for Angie that she even thought to take a delicious treat meant for the hard-working men around her.

Now, Portman — an Oscar winner and three-time nominee — is obviously a pro, so complimenting her on understanding the basic concepts of acting may seem reductive. But the distinction she makes here isn’t that she’s playing a character rather than herself; it’s that her character isn’t in on the joke, unlike so many other satiric roles that require their performers to play up the meta connections made by the audience. Portman grasps the tone quickly and then runs away with the scene, her soft inflections and glowing expressions creating a beam of light gliding through the scene. Again, there’s so much more to the scene than celebrity worship, and that’s a credit to the writing as much as the performers.

More Candids

 
It seems the ban has been opened, and the paparazzi are not going to miss the opportunity to capture any moment in Natalie’s private life with her daughter. This time they were caught taking a walk yesterday in Los Angeles. Zimbio has the photos …

It was a matter of time before the paparazzis caught Natalie and Amalia … and it was like that, taking a walk in Griffith Park. Natalie covers her baby all the time, so she does not see her face in any moment. As usual, Daily Mail and Hawtcelebs have the photos:

No Natalie in Boston Calling

 
Unfortunately, it seems that we will not see Natalie at the Boston Calling Festival next May. According to this, organizers for the music festival announced yesterday that 13 comedians will join the 45 musical acts at Boston Calling this spring for a “comedy experience,” replacing the previously announced “film experience” curated by Natalie due to scheduling conflicts for artists involved in the showcase. However, according to the statement, she plans to reschedule for a future edition of the festival.

Planetarium Clips

 
Planetarium, one of Natalie’s last films, has not been lucky enough to find distribution in the US, but Rebecca Zlotowski’s movie opens in cinemas in Italy this week, and as a result, we can enjoy a few video clips of the film (dubbed in Italian), in which we can appreciate Natalie´s perfomance and the gorgeous costume design:

Best Drawing

 
The Charlies switches to Best Drawing. There wasn’t a ton of Natalie drawings in 2016 (2015 was a bumper year) but there was still some fine work to fill out the category. Happy voting!

Finally we hear from Annihilation, Alex Garland’s next film as director after his acclaimed Ex Machina. Paramount has revealed the first images of the movie in the CinemaCon today. The Wrap and The Tracking Board have a description of the footage:

Writer-director Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina looked absolutely dynamite, highlighted by a sequence in which Portman’s husband (Oscar Isaac) returns home from a covert mission, only to begin coughing up blood. En route to the hospital, the ambulance is pulled over by military officials and the couple are separated again, with Portman waking up to find a psychiatrist played by Jennifer Jason Leigh doing her best to explain what’s going on.

Based on the novel by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation looks like a chilling, highly original sci-fi movie bolstered by a fantastic female cast that also includes Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Swedish actress Tuva Novotny. Giving audiences a nice taste of the story while still retaining an air of mystery, this trailer is going to set the internet on fire upon release.

Unfortunately, it seems to confirm that the film pushed back its release from 2017 to 2018, so we will have to wait until next year to see the movie. We hope, however, that we can see some photos or a trailer to make more bearable the wait…
