‘Lucy in the Sky’ Trailer: Natalie Portman Goes to Space and Back in Noah Hawley’s Directorial Debut

The feature film from Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, making his directorial debut, looks as cerebral and trippy as that experience would be, anchored by a tremulous performance by Natalie Portman. See the Lucy in the Sky trailer below...

Portman Is 'Uncomfortable' Supporting Trump's National Emergency Declaration

Senator Rob Portman said he is undecided on how he will vote on the proposal to reject President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to fund a border wall. Portman agrees immigration, trafficking and drugs are creating a crisis at the border, but he wants to know where funding for the president’s priorities will come from. “The question is can he find funds from other areas, and I think there are some where you don’t need to have an emergency that he can use. I support those, and the que...

Portman Proposal to Prevent Future Shutdowns Gaining Support

Ohio Senator Rob Portman is trying to pass a bill that would prevent another government shutdown in the future.

Why Does Alex Garland's 'Annihilation' Perpetuate the Hidden Figure of Henrietta Lacks?

None As is now standard for new films—and especially films that adapt source material and thus draw from an existing archive—the cinematic release of Alex Garland's Annihilation (2018) prompted a flurry of "easter egg" exposés. "A Small But Literary Easter Egg You Probably Missed" (Bustle); Some Biology Easter Eggs for You from Annihilation" (Medium); "The Easter Egg in Annihilation that Clarifies Everything" (Refinery29). The term "easter eggs" in media once referred to hidden messages, images...

Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

The Surprising Reason Natalie Portman's Makeup in Vox Lux Took 4 Hours To Do

In the age of modern celebrity, the film Vox Lux tells a tale as old as time: young aspiring singer catches a lucky break that catapults her to superstardom, only to watch things ricochet from good to bad at a blistering pace. What makes Celeste (played by Natalie Portman)'s story different, though, isn't in how it originates, or even the music - it's the movie's hair and makeup. "Celeste is a powerful, strong, and dark individual, so it was necessary to express that through [her look]," the fil...

Portman, Brown Speak About Possible Government Shutdown

The clock is ticking towards a federal government shutdown as Congress has yet to approve a spending bill. The main point of contention is the allotment of $5 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. At least one Ohio lawmaker is adamantly speaking against a shutdown. Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman has a bill that would take shutdowns off the table in future budget negotiations. While Portman acknowledges the border wall has become a wedge to both sides, he’s hopeful about find...

She's an increasingly versatile actress, known for fraught, melodramatic performances in films like Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and Pablo Larrain's Jackie — and in Luc Besson's 1994 Léon, the Professional when she was just a child — and so the maximalism here, culminating in a frenzied pop music performance, isn't as st...
