A new Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick campaign is coming, and we have a couple of stunning photos and a video (via @Padme.Natalie):

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:
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.
Natalie continues to promote “Eating Animals.” On this occasion, she visits the Bon Appétit test kitchen to make a vegan carpaccio with Carla. Can she follow along using verbal instructions only? We will see it in this video:
We have a couple of more video excerpts, belonging to Natalie’s interview for Today´s Show with Hoda Kobt, recorded at SiriusXM Studios. The full interview will air on June 25:
Finally we have one of the interviews made at the SiriusXM studios in NYC last weekend, on the occasion of the release of “Eating Animals. In this video, Natalie reflects on what it means to be a vegan:
It must be recognized that when Natalie commits herself to something she believes in, she is heavily involved in promoting it. Here we have a new sample of it: she is the protagonist of a new video for Munchies, in which she teaches us how to cook a chickpea stew:
And more promotion for Eating Animals. Natalie has been on CBS This Morning to talk about the documentary based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, and here is the video of the interview:
Annihilation arrives on digital today in the USA, and we have a new still and a couple of clips of the special features that we can find in the digital copy and Blu-ray to celebrate it:
Watch the visually spectacular #Annihilation in 4K HDR on your Apple TV 4K.

Today is the “Star Wars Day”, and Natalie has celebrated it by posting an instagram photo of her last appearance on Saturday Night Live:
… What better occasion to remember that great second rap video, this time in an uncensored version:
Quiet is the tonic in Natland these last days, but that doesn´t mean that there aren´t a few tidbits…
-The release of Annihilation on Netflix last week has been a rebound in popularity of the film overseas. Alex Garland’s movie is the second most popular film in IMDB right now, just behind “Avengers: Infinite Wars”. China is the only country where it has not yet been released, but today it has been known that the film will be on April 13th there.
–IndieWire has an article that speculates about the films that will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival next May, and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan is one of the rumored ones:
Some rumors suggest the movie is in contention for an opening night slot, and it certainly would seem to fit in there, although it would also come as no surprise if it’s the sole Canadian feature in Competition
-Finally, here we can see a compilation video that makes a fairly complete summary of all the appearances of Natalie in film and TV. It is really curious to see her evolution as an actress for almost 25 years, summarized in a few minutes. Enjoy:
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:
