“I’m not the First Lady anymore,” says Natalie Portman as a mourning Jackie Kennedy in the first full trailer for “Jackie,” which Fox Searchlight released on Monday, November 14. It’s the first in-depth look at the film following an initial teaser trailer that premiered in October.
“I believe the characters we read about on the page end up being more real than the men who stand beside us … I’ve grown accustomed to the great divide between what people believe and what I know to be real,” Portman’s Jackie adds, lifting the veil on the Camelot myth the Kennedys represented. The film, directed by Pablo Larrain (“No”), imagines what it was like for her following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1963. The trailer reveals scenes from the assassination itself, during the aftermath in the White House, and during a subsequent interview between Jackie and a journalist (Billy Crudup) who interviews her for Life magazine.
Portman was first nominated for an Oscar in 2004 when she contended for Best Supporting Actress for “Closer.” Six years later she was nominated again and won: this time Best Actress for “Black Swan” (2010). And now six years after that it looks like Portman will be nominated a third time for “Jackie.” According to the latest predictions of our Experts, she ranks a close second in the Best Actress race with 7/2 odds, behind Emma Stone (“La La Land”), and the film is currently among the top 10 contenders for Best Picture. Based on the new trailer, do you think the film will be a winner?
