Jane Got a Gun did not have the smoothest of productions, to say the least. When Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) exited the film on the first day of principal photography, co-star Jude Law (Spy) left with her. A lawsuit followed Ramsay’s sudden departure, and there was a whole lot of “he said, she said” going on. Ultimately, director Gavin O’Connor stepped in and possibly saved the day, reuniting with a frequent collaborator, Noah Emmerich (The Americans), and Joel Edgerton (The Gift) — the star of his last film, Warrior.

Terrence Malick‘s films are often quite patient in their pacing. They aren’t exactly high-energy, unless you find excitement in staring off into the distance for long periods of time, caressing a lover’s hand or hair, or talking about what it all means to be alive. Malick’s movies are invigorating in their own way, as tone poems. However, his latest film, Knight of Cups, looks quite enthralling, in a more conventional sense.

Alex Garland‘s directorial debut Ex Machina has proven to be one of the very best films of 2015, thanks in no small part to the exceptional actors at its core: future Star Wars stars Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, and the suddenly ubiquitous Alicia Vikander. Now his follow-up feature Annihilation, set up at Paramount, is collecting a similarly promising cast.
Natalie Portman joined the sci-fi project back in May, and now word is she’ll be joined by Gina Rodriguez. The Jane the Virgin star recently attracted some attention when she was reported to be in the running for the Rian Johnson-directed Star Wars Episode VIII. More on the Gina Rodriguez Annihilation casting after the jump. Read More »

If you’ve heard of Jane Got a Gun at all, it was probably in the context of the film’s many, many behind-the-scenes troubles. Original director Lynne Ramsay dropped out at the last second, which in turn set off a bunch of casting shakeups. The project then rallied under new director in Gavin O’Connor and finished shooting in 2013, only to get shelved due to Relativity’s financial troubles.
But it’s finally coming to theaters in France next month, and so the first Jane Got a Gun trailer has revealed itself for our judgment. Natalie Portman produced and stars as the titular Jane, whose husband (Noah Emmerich) turns up half-dead after a run-in with an outlaw gang (led by Ewan McGregor). In desperation, she turns to an old flame (Joel Edgerton) for help protecting her farm and her family. Watch the Jane Got a Gun trailer after the jump. Read More »

UPDATE: An updated A Tale of Love and Darkness trailer with English subtitles has just been released, and you can check it out after the jump. Original story from 08/12/2015 follows.
For her feature directorial debut, Natalie Portman also wrote and starred in A Tale of Love and Darkness, an adaptation of the autobiographical novel by Amos Oz, effectively an account of the founding of the state of Isreal as recounted through events in Oz’s own life. The story begins in 1945 in Jerusalem, honing in on Oz’s family — young Amos (Amir Tessler), parents Arieh (Gilad Kahana) and Fania (Portman) — as tensions mount between Jews and Arabs towards the end of the Mandate for Palestine.
There’s no domestic trailer for the film just yet, but we do have an international trailer for A Tale of Love and Darkness. While there’s no English language dialogue here, the trailer still communicates quite a lot through the imagery captured by Portman and her cinematographer Slawomir Idziak (Black Hawk Down, Gattaca). Have a look after the break. Read More »
Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman, is a western thriller about a woman defending herself and her home from violent attack, but the film itself seems like it has been a lot more vulnerable than Jane herself. Now, after a significant delay — the film shot in 2013 — there’s finally a Jane Got a Gun release date that might stick, as the film is on the Weinstein Company calendar for February 2016.

The film is called Jackie, and it counts Portman’s Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky as a producer. Read More »
