I was really excited about the prospect of Natalie working on a French film, particularly one directed by Rebecca Zlotowski whose Grand Central is fantastic. Unfortunately, this is one of my least favourite Natalie films. The story has a strong connection to the dead, but its the film that is D.O.A. It certainly looks handsome, and the performances (particularly Natalie and Emmanual Salinger) are solid at the very least.
It’s the middle of August, and almost a month has passed since Natalie’s last public appearance. While we wait for the summer to end, here we have a few tidbits.
-The new Miss Dior perfume & campaign can be found in stores since yesterday. Pending the launch of the new promotional video, here is a beautiful, enlarged image of one of the ads. Once again, thanks to Eden for the find:
A brief behind-the-scenes video of Planetarium has emerged, on the occasion of the USA release of the film. In the clip, Natalie reveals that her character is a hustler who’s protective of her younger sister, Kate (Lily Rose-Depp):
Planetarium, the film directed by Rebecca Zlotowski, will have a limited release next weekend in USA, and WWD has a short interview with Natalie because of it. In the article, she also briefly talks about her role in the Xavier Dolan´s film.

Planetarium, the film directed by Rebecca Zlotowski and starring Natalie and Lily-Rose Depp, finally got a US release. Months after its premiere in several countries (and even with Blu-ray & DVD editions in France), the movie will have a limited release on August 11 in New York and a week later in LA.
So maybe we have occasion to see some kind of premiere with Natalie and the rest of the cast next month. At the moment a subtitled trailer in English has seen the light in the last days. In essence is the same that we saw last September:
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:
Taking advantage of this impasse of big news, here goes a few tidbits…
-With the release of Jackie in several countries outside of the USA, many interviews in different newspapers and Magazines are appearing. Amo has found one of them in the English magazine “The Lady”, in which Natalie denies some of the topics about her life that are often read on some sites.
-It seems to be confirmed that Mimi Leder will be the next director of “On the Basis of Sex”, the long-delayed biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It is not yet known when the movie will start filming, but it could be one of the projects that the actress approaches after her pregnancy. In her recent appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, she talked a little about the argument:
-Finally, someone has uploaded to YouTube a short Planetarium scene … and well, let’s say we had not seen anything like this since “Hotel Chevalier” 🙂
Video after the jump…
The year begins very strong in Natland. While we wait for a trailer of Malick’s latest film and the Golden Globes ceremony next Sunday, here we have an abundant ration of tidbits…
-Last Monday, Natalie was honored with an award at the Palm Springs Festival. Tom Hanks was in charge of it, and he delivered to Natalie an awesome introduction speech. Here is a small sample of his kind words to her (thanks to Fanatical610 for the find):

While Hanks introduced Natalie, she was backstage, and a photographer caught a really nice moment …
Planetarium opens in France today. Unfortunately, Rebecca Zlotowski’s latest film, starring Natalie and Lily Rose Depp, hasn´t had a critical reception as good as Jackie, but this movie supposes the opportunity to see our favorite actress in a mysterious and interesting role. To celebrate the release, here we have an interview (in French) of the director in Allocine, and a few instagram photos shared by some people of the crew (including the director herself).
Taking advantage of this small hiatus of news, here are a new ration of tidbits…
-First of all, Natalie will receive an achievement in film award at the Israel Film Festival tomorrow, alongside Sharon Stone and Jay Sanderson, and surely we will have some photos of the gala dinner.
-The AFI Fest will start next Thursday, and one of the highlights of the festival will be the special gala of Jackie:
For the premiere of Planetarium, Natalie and Rebecca Zlotowski have given an interview for Canal Plus France, to be broadcast next Sunday. Here is a little preview…
