Natalie Portman Looks Amazing in First Trailer for Vox Lux

Natalie Portman Looks Amazing in First Trailer for Vox Lux

The first trailer for Vox Lux shows that Natalie Portman is giving one of the best performances of her career.

After premiering at the Venice Film Festival in September, the world is finally getting its first look at Vox Lux, a music drama film starring Natalie Portman as Celeste, a pop star looking to make a comeback.

Judging from the trailer, Portman is giving one of the best performances of her career, playing a range from the confident pop star to a woman frustrated by the complications of being a celebrity. There are shots of concerts, backstage drama and several scenes that look at how being a celebrity can change a person over time. This looks to be one of the best films of the year. What did you think of the trailer for Vox Lux?

VOX LUX, A 20th Century Portrait, begins in 1999 when teenage Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) survives a violent tragedy.  After singing at a memorial service, Celeste transforms into a burgeoning pop star with the help of her songwriter sister (Stacy Martin) and talent manager (Jude Law). Celeste’s meteoric rise to fame dovetails with a personal and national loss of innocence, consequently elevating the young powerhouse to a new kind of celebrity: American icon, secular deity, global superstar. By 2017, adult Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mounting a comeback after a scandalous incident almost derailed her career.  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.

Vox Lux comes to theaters on December 7, 2018.
