  • Natalie Portman talks Vox Lux

Vox Lux has just gotten its first official trailer. Portman's gunning for Best Supporting Actress, rather than lead, because she's in only half the film: the other half is centered around Celeste as a teenager, who becomes world famous, with the help of her songwriter sister, after surviving a tragedy. Touring in support of her sixth album, a compendium of sci-fi anthems entitled, Vox Lux, the indomitable, foul-mouthed pop savior must overcome her personal and familial struggles to navigate motherhood, madness, and monolithic fame.

Rounding out the film's cast are Stacy Martin, who plays Celeste's sister; Jude Law as Celeste's manager; Jennifer Ehle as a no-nonsense publicist, and Willem Dafoe as the film's narrator.

Written and directed by Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader), Vox Lux is produced by Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim alongside Killer Films' Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa, Bold Films' Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak and Svetlana Metkina and Brian Young from Three Six Zero Entertainment.

Shane Warne joins MCC World Cricket committee
Leg-spinner Warne took 708 wickets in 145 Test matches for Australia and retired from all formats of the game in 2013. The 49-year-old replaces fellow Australian Rod Marsh , who stepped down after serving on the committee since 2012.

The trailer leans heavily on the second half of the movie, which makes sense since that's the half that features Portman, and she's the draw.

Portman plays an older version of Celeste, long after the American public has turned her into a pop commodity. The song goes over so well that it transforms her into an overnight sensation on the path to pop superstardom.

"A sonic nightmare, booming with a terrifying and powerful score from Scott Walker (with songs by Sia), Vox Lux is a living, breathing entity - a unique phantasmagoria of death and music. It's as if these are burnt offerings; human sacrifices in order to appease the dark elder gods of fame". In the year 1999, on the eve of the 21st century, teenage sisters Celeste and Eleanor survive a seismic, violent tragedy.
