On the occasion of an upcoming commemorative book next November, Marvel Studios has released a few new behind-the-scenes pictures included in it. Among them, there is one with Natalie as Jane Foster in Thor. Here it is:
According to Livekindly, Eating Animals, the documentary narrated and produced by Natalie, and based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, will release in US theaters on June 15. The film received high praises when premiered at the Telluride festival last September, and it reveals through intimate narratives what has happened to American country in the past 40 years as we have moved away from traditional farming communities to massive industrial farming complexes that produce a seemingly endless supply of so-called “cheap” meat, eggs, and dairy.
The 90th edition of the Academy Awards is being held today. Unfortunately Natalie will not attend the event, due to the shooting of Vox Lux in New York, but we can compensate by watching again her speech as best actress winner for Black Swan in 2011, which is , according to Entertainment Weekly, the eighth most watched acceptance speech in the history of the awards on YouTube, with 5,6 millions views:

In the press release, Natalie expresses her gratitude for this initiative:
“I would like to express my gratitude and admiration to Morris Kahn for his incredible support of the 2018 Genesis Prize theme,” said Portman. “Morris’ generosity once again reinforces how relevant and important the issue of women’s equality is today – in Israel, in the US and beyond.”

We had been quite some time without knowing anything about The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards, the film produced by James Franco and directed by his students at UCLA. The film was finished three years ago, and has only been seen in a couple of festivals in the USA and Italy during this time. Well, according to IMDB and Box Office Mojo, the movie will finally have a limited release on October 27, courtesy of Cinedigm Entertainment. It will probably be a similar presentation to Planetarium in August, but presumably we will finally be able to see Natalie’s participation in this student film. For now, here is a new photo, and the trailer that was presented two years ago:
Time for remembrance: American fashion designer and weekly judge on Project Runway Isaac Mizrahi has shared in instagram an old, great photo of a fourteen-year-old Natalie, taken in the mid-nineties. Here it is:
