PETA Video

By | Nat-news, News | 3 Comments

Natalie appears in a new campaign for PETA speaking about famed writer Isaac Bashevis Singer. The writer, who died in 1991 in Florida, won a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978 for his work. He was a prominent vegetarian for the last 35 years of his life. Several of his works referenced his compassion for animal suffering, and he even once compared it to the Holocaust. In the video, Natalie speaks of Singer’s Jewish background and how it came to influence his decisions:

I finally returned from a few days of vacation, with renewed energy to tell you the news that is happening in Natland. The truth is that there have not been many in recent days (probably Natalie is already filming the movie by Noah Hawley), but here we have a few Tidbits:

-According to Star Wars Website, Padme Amidala will be returning to the fray for Star Wars novel Thrawn: Alliances later this month. While Natalie’s prequel character will always be known as the mother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, Thrawn: Alliances will roll back the years to focus on her military prowess, and below you’ll find a glimpse of the Barnes & Noble exclusive edition for Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances. The image that illustrates this book has a great resemblance to her:

-Speaking of Noah Hawley’s film, Pale Blue Dot, according to this press release about Natalie’s conversation with Yuval Noah Harari next September, the film could have a new title: Life On Earth. We’ll see if there’s any official confirmation about it.

-Finally, we have a HD video of the post Q&A screening of “Eating Animals” at the LA Landmark Theatre last June:

Natalie Portman in conversation with Yuval Noah Harari

By | Nat-news | No Comments

If you’re in the UK you can grab tickets for a conversation between Natalie and author, Yuval Noah Harari. The event will be held in Westminster, London, and will be in promotion of his new books, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

Yuval had this to say:

“I am very much looking forward to talking with Natalie. We were both born in the myth-factory of the world, and much of our careers have revolved around the tension between myth, science and science fiction. I am keen to hear her take on reality, fiction and everything in between. Neither of us is known for dodging difficult issues – so it should be interesting.”

Pale Blue Dot Updates

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

Natalie Portman’s next film, which should start filming any day now, is Pale Blue Dot from director Noah Hawley (Fargo TV series).

Well, it seems Pale Blue Dot was a placeholder title for the psychological drama about a returning female astronaut. What will the film actually be called? Your guess is as good as mine but we’re going to keep calling it Pale Blue Dot until a new title emerges.

Colman

In casting news, it has just been announced that Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead) and Jeremiah Birkett (LA Confidential) join Natalie, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz and Dan Stevens.

Friday is almost upon us so to ease into the reverie, here are some new Natalie Portman tidbits.

– The LA Online Film Critics Society handed out their mid-year awards. Natalie was nominated for Best Actress and Annihilation also got several other nominations, but in the end the only success was runner-up for Best Adapted Screenplay.

– Somewhat related, The Playlist has an early look at next year’s Academy Award potentials for Best Actress and Natalie’s Annihilation is mentioned… as a long-shot.

– The Genesis “Jewish Nobel” Prize, which Natalie chose to not accept, was finally given to Ruth Bader Ginsburg who, at one stage, Natalie was set to play in a biopic. It turns out Ginsburg was the original choice for the award, so perhaps fitting that she received it.

New Harvard Interview

There have been some standout on-screen interviews with Natalie Portman in recent weeks, most of them very polished and professional. Today we have something a bit different – Aaron Fogelson managed to get Natalie to chat about a range of topics during her Boston Calling appearance.

It’s quite endearing thanks to the low-fi quality of the surroundings and Aaron looking like he’s having the best day of his life.

It’s time for a new weekly batch of tidbits:

-Usually, film critics associations announce their nominations and awards at the end of the year, but Los Angeles Online Film Critic Society has broken the rule, announcing their “mid-season” film awards nominees. Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther received the most love with seven nominations, but Annihilation has also achieved four mentions, including one for Natalie in the category of best actress. The winners will be known next week.

It seems Natalie has joined to nationwide protests across the US over the Trump administration’s strict migrant policy. People across many major towns and cities in the US have been urged to gather under the slogan #familiesbelongtogether. No pictures of Natalie so far, but W Magazine has several photos of the people who are participating in the marches this Saturday.
