I've seen Natalie Portman in a lot of films, and a lot of really different roles. She's played everything from Padme in the Star Wars prequels and Jane Foster in the Thor films to Evey in V For Vendetta or Nina in Black Swan. It's been one crazy career, and a long one considering she is but 34. Now though she's taking on another role that is again completely different from any she's had before: Jane Hammond in Jane Got a Gun.
For those of you who haven't heard of this film yet, Jane Got A Gun is about a woman (Natalie Portman) trying to convince her ex-lover (Ewan McGregor) to help her save her husband (Noah Emmerich) from a gang leader seeking his death (Rodrigo Santoro).
Now this film is a through and through Western Film, and with the serious lack of those in current cinema, we have to cross our fingers that this will be a great one!
Now the question is: What can we expect from this film? Well, the answer is a bad-ass Natalie Portman! Below you can check out the new trailer where Natalie Portman fights to save her family from this gang leader!
Now as you can see, this is a proper Western film, and even better and more unexpected is that there is a female leading the cast! I can't name a whole lot of Westerns where that is the case.
This does bring up another interesting question, what is going on with the Western genre right now? Do you guys think it's making a comeback, or is this film one of the last of a dying breed?
