Director Luc Besson’s 1994 crime thriller The Professional (or Léon to our French readers) introduced audiences to a different kind of hitman movie, as well as one of today’s leading actresses. The film about an orphaned adolescent who is taken in by her friendly neighborhood assassin featured standout performances by its three main stars: Natalie Portman, Gary Oldman, and Jean Reno. And 20 years later it still holds up with Gary Oldman delivering one of the best psychotic roles — and there have been a lot of them — of his entire career.
To mark the film’s 20th anniversary, I’ve dug up some facts on how the movie came together and where young Natalie Portman drew her inspiration from. (Hint: it involves a fictional Aurora, IL celebrity.)
I’ve added to the gallery images of Natalie from the latest two events she attended. Enjoy them!

Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman will be in the Hudson Valley Oct. 18 to attend the Woodstock Film Festival.
Portman will be at the Woodstock Film Festival’s Maverick Awards Ceremony at Backstage Studio Productions in Kingston. She will join fellow Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly in presenting the film festival’s Honorary Maverick Award to director Darren Aronofsky.
Aronofsky was nominated for best director for 2010’s “Black Swan,” the film for which Portman received an Oscar. Connelly, who won the Oscar for her role in 2001’s “A Beautiful Mind,” appeared in Aronofsky’s “Noah,” which was released earlier this year.
The 15th annual Woodstock Film Festival runs Oct. 15-19 in Woodstock, Rhinebeck, Kingston and Rosendale. The annual cinematic gathering typically draws thousands to the Hudson Valley. South African musician Hugh Masekela and comedian Pauly Shore are among those scheduled to make appearances.
The Town of Woodstock, in honor of the cinematic gathering’s 15th anniversary, has declared the week of Oct. 13-19 Woodstock Film Festival Week.
Hi everyone, I’m back in charge to Nat-Portman.Us! Want to thank Jessie for all the things she’s done, I was very happy to have adopted it out to her, but unfortunately real life called in for her and while we wish all the best to her, the site must go on. I’ve added to the gallery the one missing event Natalie did back on september 23rd.

There are many different time spans on movies in Hollywood these days and, while there are many that can film at the beginning of the year and release the very same year, there are others that can take some time to actually get its big release. The latter has certainly been the case for the upcoming Terrence Malick movie Knight of Cups, which has been years in the making.
We first heard that Terrence Malick was making the movie Knight of Cups back in 2011, before the project then began filming in 2012. Knight of Cups then went into post-production in 2012 and we have been waiting for its big release ever since. Not a great deal is known about the project but, with an all-star cast including Natalie Portman, we expect it to be quite an impressive movie.
Knight of Cups boasts an all-star cast including such big Hollywood stars as Imogen Poots, Joe Manganiello, Christian Bale, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman, Cate Blanchett, Teresa Palmer, Nick Offerman, Freida Pinto, Antonio Banderas, Nicky Whelan, Isabel Lucas, Wes Bentley and Thomas Lennon, as well as Natalie Portman.
Knight of Cups has been directed by Terrence Malick, who also wrote the screenplay for the movie, while Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green, Ken Kao are producers on the film. While there is no official release date for Knight of Cups yet, we do expect it to open sometime in 2014, as Terrence himself recently admitted that it will open on limited release this year, before spreading nationwide. We look forward to seeing what the film has to offer.
