Despite her diverse range of previous roles, we think it's safe to assume that we've never seen Natalie Portman portray a character quite like the one in Vox Lux. In the forthcoming film by actor-turned-director Brady Corbet, Portman is an out-of-this-world pop star — think Lady Gaga meets Jem meets David Bowie — who is grappling with a teenage daughter, the aftermath of a traumatic accident, and a meddling manager, portrayed by Jude Law. What's more, the score will feature original songs by Sia.
Vox Lux will hit theatres on Dec. 7, and it's already being considered an Oscars contender. Portman is no stranger to the esteemed award show, and has personally been nominated three times for Closer, Jackie, and Black Swan, which earned her the award for best actress. If the dramatic trailer is any indication, Vox Lux could very well earn her a fourth nomination.
