Sunday Tidbits

By | Nat-news, News | No Comments

It has been an intense week in news, but we still have a few tidbits this Sunday…

-A Conversation with Natalie has been added to AFI FEST. Honoring the actress’s career, the conversation will take place on Friday, November 9, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, following a previously announced Special Screening of Vox Lux.

-The Hollywood Reporter has a short interview with Natalie, in which she says all of her activism is related – fighting for the environment as a vegan and fighting for gender equality as a supporter of Time’s Up.

-Some ideas for your Halloween costume? Sia’s makeup artist, Tonya Brewer, and dancer, Maddie Ziegler have chosen the characters of Leon and Mathilda as inspiration:

Natalie was in Texas yesterday, meeting with volunteers from the office of Beto O’Rourke, Democratic nominee for the Texas Senate in the upcoming elections. We only have an Instagram photo of the event at the moment:

We were just informed that yesterday’s was not the official poster.

Whoops.

Funnily enough, we were talking in the private natalieportman.com Facebook group (for long time np.com contributors and Patrons ;-)) about how disappointing it was that the poster used the photo we’ve already seen a million times.

Now we know why.

I’m sure the official poster will be along soon but until then, here is a still from the amazing trailer.

Basketball Game

We don´t see Natalie and her family at an event unrelated to work for quite some time. Yesterday was one of those unusual moments: She and Aleph attended a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center last night, and we have rarely seen them so relaxed, enjoying an event. Getty Images has the photos, although it should be noted that Aleph’s face is clearly visible:

Weeks go by and we haven´t seen a Vox Lux trailer yet, but we have our weekly portion of tidbits to make the wait more bearable…

-Neon continues to promote Brady Corbet’s film at festivals. AFI Fest has announced Today its inclusion in the “special screenings” lineup, and the movie can also be seen at the Houston festival:

Sites such as Deadline or IndieWire have begun to display advertising banners today about the film. Hopefully this means being able to see new images of the movie very soon.

-We had not heard anything about The Death and Life of John F. Donovan since its premiere in Toronto a month ago. The film still has no release date in the US, but in France (one of the few countries where Xavier Dolan’s movie has a distributor) will be released on March 13, according to the chairman of Mars Films:
