Relativity has dated Natalie’s ”Jane Got a Gun” for U.S. release on August 29, 2014.
The Western, directed by Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), stars Portman as a frontier woman who has built a new life with her husband, played by Emmerich, after being tormented by the Bishop Boys’ outlaw gang. But when her husband gets into a fight with the Boys and their mastermind, Colin, played by McGregor, Jane is forced to turn to her former fiance (Edgerton) to protect her family.
Natalie visited ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ on November 7, 2013 in New York City. Jimmy and Natalie recalled an MTV VMA promo they appeared in together long ago, and Jimmy asked Natalie about her upcoming move to Paris.
Natalie attended The Cinema Society & Dior Beauty screening of ‘Thor: The Dark World’ at Marlton Hotel on November 6, 2013 in New York City. Although Natalie was the only Thor castmember on hand, she was joined by Howard Stern, Nina Garcia, designer Rachel Roy and The Carrie Diaries’ AnnaSophia Robb, among other stars.
Wearing Harry Winston jewels and a new haircut, Nat dazzled as she made her way down the red carpet at the screening. “We just tried it today,” she said of the blunt cut that appeared to be freshly chopped. “You can probably still smell my dye if you get close enough.”
During ‘Thor: The Dark World’ press day, Natalie spoke to Mania journalists about the challenges of The Dark World, as well as the last two decades of her career.
Question: In the first film, Jane was very much a spectator, whereas this time she’s right in the middle of Thor’s world. Was that part of what excited you about the prospect of coming back?
Natalie Portman: It was exciting to get to come back on a general level. I had such a wonderful experience on the first film, and it was great to get to work with Chris [Hemsworth] and Kat [Dennings] again. As far as going to Thor’s world, the best part was getting to work more with actors who I hadn’t done much with in the first film. Tom Hiddleston in particular was amazing to work with, but to have scenes with Rene [Russo] and Anthony [Hopkins], too, was just amazing. There was definitely a lot of laughing, maybe too much laughing on set.
Q: We asked Chris Hemsworth about shooting in London. How different is it filming in the UK as opposed to shooting in Hollywood?
NP: It’s hard to compare because we don’t really shoot in Hollywood at all these days. I love working here, though, and I’m a little envious of British actors and British crews because they can always work close to home. American and Australian actors, we end up like gypsies: moving from movie to movie, changing cities all the time. You can really have such a fulfilling, wonderful rich career in London, between the theatre, the TV here, and the film. It’s pretty cool to get to live and work in the same place.
