Must Watch: Natalie Portman in First Trailer for Pablo Larraín's 'Jackie'
"Don't let it be forgot, that for one brief shining moment there was a Camelot." Fox Searchlight has put out a teaser trailer for the other Pablo Larrain film this year, titled Jackie, his first English-language feature. Natalie Portman stars as First Lady Jackie Kennedy, profiling her experiences after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1966. The cast includes Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, John Carroll Lynch, Richard E. Grant and Max Casella. I had the chance to see this film and it's one of the best of the year, it's phenomenal, and Portman is superb in it. This is a lovely, nice glimpse at the film - and all you need to see before catching this one in theaters.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Pablo Larraín's Jackie, direct from YouTube:
Following the assassination of her husband, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Portman) fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy. Jackie is directed by award-winning Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, making his English-language debut this time, after the acclaimed films Neruda, The Club, No, Post Mortem, Tony Manero and Fuga previously. The screenplay is written by Noah Oppenheim (Allegiant, The Maze Runner). This first premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this year, and is also playing at the New York Film Festival. Fox Searchlight will release Larraín's Jackie in theaters starting December 2nd this fall. Highly recommend catching this film.

I wonder if they did slight prosthesis work on her face or used some kind of light-CGI work? It looks quite subtle. Maybe it is just me...probably.

This trailer felt like a horror movie trailer to me...so weird....I dig the cinematography and direction though. Very stylish, just like the person it's based off of....

Parker Posey in House of Yes had done marvelous job by allegorizing her. Natalie Portman does also a good job in portraying Jackie in a very intense way. It's so good I don't see any connection to the real person...

I really like the visuals, very obvious that it's shot on film, which is a good thing. A bit more excited for this one now.
