Director: Don Roos
The Scoop: The indie drama follows a woman (Portman) whose life falls apart after her newborn daughter dies. The death leads to marital woes, particularly in the vengeful form of her husband’s ex-wife. Despite solid reviews, “The Other Woman” has been stuck on the festival circuit for nearly two years; it’s finally being released thanks in large part to the buzz surrounding Portman’s other project, “Black Swan.” Based on the Ayelet Waldman novel of the same name.
Rated R, 119 min. | Watch the trailer »

There will be one more Natalie Portman movie in theaters, besides Black Swan and No Strings Attached where she is expected to be awarded; The Other Woman is the drama based on the Ayelet Waldman novel Love and Other Impossible Pursuits.
The movie seems like one of those modest indies that comes out of festivals, which explains why they have waited that long to put it in theaters.
New poster which features the lead actress in aquarelle pink has gone online. That pretty shade of magenta is quite suitable! The poster is solid enough to present a pastel colored Portman set against a hand drawn city background. Just take a look!
Portman plays a young woman married to an older man whose ex-wife (Lisa Kudrow) is resentful of the new relationship. She’s also dealing with the sudden death of her child and the aversion from her stepson (Charlie Tahan »

IFC released new Natalie Portman 'The Other Woman' movie trailer. IFC has just released the movie trailer (below) for their new Natalie Portman branded drama flick "The Other Woman." It looks pretty drama-filled as Natalie's character loses her baby,and struggles trying to get over it by taking out her anger on the ones who love her the most. The movie stars: Natalie Portman, Scott Cohen, Charlie Tahan,and Lisa Kudrow. »
Cashing on the success of Black Swan, IFC Films is planning a release of The Other Woman next month. Natalie Portman stars in the drama originally titled Love and Impossible Pursuits, based off Ayelet Waldman‘s novel. Directed and adapted by Don Roos (Bounce, Happy Endings) and co-starring Lisa Kudrow, Daisy Tahan, and Lauren Ambrose, the film premiered at Toronto International Film Festival back in 2009. We have the first trailer below via Yahoo and poster via Vulture.
It all has a very been-there-done-that vibe, and with better-looking films like Rabbit Hole covering similar territory, this doesn’t exactly grab me. I did get a chance to see an early screening of Natalie Portman’s other January release, No Strings Attached, and for a romantic-comedy it isn’t half-bad. At least we have that, Thor, and Your Highness to look forward to in Portman’s 2011 filmography.

Adding even more excitement to the list of things Natalie Portman is coming out with in 2011 -- including a few high-profile flicks and, yes, her first child -- the trailer for her indie flick "The Other Woman" hit the Internet today. When we suggested the newly engaged actress make a movie that takes advantage of her budding pregnancy, we didn't know she'd do it so quickly (though, in all fairness, she filmed this one awhile ago)!
The film follows Portman as an office secretary who falls in love with her boss, played by Scott Cohen. The only problem is that he's married (to Lisa Kudrow) and has a son ("Charlie St. Cloud"'s Charlie Tahan), but that doesn't stop Portman. Portman's boss divorces his wife and the two get married, and Portman is soon pregnant with their first child, a daughter. But she loses the baby, and the film -- »

The film is an adaptation of the book Love And Other Impossible Pursuits about;
Emilia (Natalie Portman) is a Harvard law school graduate and a newlywed, having just married Jack (Scott Cohen), a high-powered New York lawyer, who was her boss — and married — when she began working at his law firm. Unfortunately, her life takes an unexpected turn when Jack and Emilia lose their newborn daughter. Emilia struggles through her grief to connect with her new stepson William (Charlie Tahan), but is finding it hard to connect with this precocious child. Perhaps the most difficult obstacle of all for Emilia is trying to cope with the constant interferences of her husband’s angry, jealous ex-wife, Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow).

There's all sorts of Natalie Portman gossip news today. She's engaged! She's pregnant! But let's leave the details of that stuff to others, and focus on her work. With some of her best acting yet currently being seen in Black Swan, there may be more interest in Portman than ever -- hence her appearance on a couple dozen casting shortlists over the past three months. In 2011 she's got Your Highness, Thor and No Strings Attached set for release. But before those three will be The Other Woman, formerly called Love and Other Impossible Pursuits. The film hits On Demand on January 1 and theaters February 4. The new poster is after the break. Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex) directs Scott Cohen and Lisa Kudrow alongside Natalie Portman, in an adaptation of the novel by Ayelet Waldman.

We have one big blockbuster release date set, as well as a few for some smaller films, all found on Bom. After the disappointing, but profitable Clash of the Titans, Warner Bros. is springing back with their sequel, Wrath of the Titans. The studio has set a release date of March 30th, 2012. This is the exact time-frame in which its predecessor was released.
Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is set to helm Wrath of the Titans, with Dan Mazeau, David Johnson, and Green Lantern writer Greg Berlanti as the super team currently working on the script. It was previously rumored that James Franco and Javier Bardem would also join the film. Bardem is looking at the character of Ares, the god of war, while Franco would play Agenor, son of Poseidon. Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Zeus.

I like Zac Efron. I think the guy’s genuinely talented and unfairly gets a bad wrap. He’s more than likely got a very successful film career ahead of him, full of deep and thought provoking films. Charlie St. Cloud is not one of those films. St. Cloud is, of course, one of Efron’s first forays into straight dramatic fare and unfortunately it’s a bit of a misfire. Films like this come out of Hollywood all the time: great-looking small town star is subject to a tragic event, gets ostracized from said town and becomes great-looking emotionally damaged outcast in whom great-looking female takes an interest, much to great-looking female’s friends and family’s dismay. Charlie St. Cloud is no exception to this cliché and, for the most part, plays like one. My review after the jump.

Director: Burr Steers
The Scoop: Efron reteams with his “17 Again” helmer. Charlie’s an accomplished sailor shaken by a car accident that kills his younger brother. Soon he’s haunted by visions of his brother and they play catch together in the woods. When an ex-classmate returns to town, romance blossoms, but Charlie will have to let go of Sam’s ghost to move forward. We’re guessing there’s no pottery in this ghost story.
Special Features: Commentary, deleted scenes, two featurettes
Rated PG-13, 109 min. | Watch the trailer »

Chicago – “He’s totally cute…like James Dean,” sighs a swooning cashier as tween heartthrob Zac Efron enters her shop. Efron may be many things, but Dean he is not. This line has been wisely axed from the final cut of “Charlie St. Cloud,” after inspiring a great deal of derisive laughter during the trailer’s theatrical run.
That trailer may have garnered more laughter-per-theater than most of the year’s comedies combined. One reacts to such a travesty with a mixture of amusement, disgust and dizzying disbelief. How could a major studio possibly greenlight a project so cloying and self-parodying? By condensing the film’s plot to under three minutes, the trailer only highlighted the film’s inherent phoniness. Yet the actual film, which runs just under an hour and forty minutes, is more melancholy than morbidly entertaining, since it fails to explore the potential of an actor who is eager to evolve. »

This powerful frontline Afghanistan doc has been compared to a real-life Hurt Locker but here, war is all difficulty and very little glory. Closely observing a Us company in the hostile Korengal Valley, it's a mix of tense combat, bunker downtime and tricky "hearts and minds" local engagement efforts, interspersed with moving post-combat reflection. It all leaves you with a great deal of respect for the soldiers, and very little for the people who put them there.
Nice timing for the return of Gordon Gekko, but has the lizard changed his spots? He's now preaching that greed isn't good, and taking in young buck Labeouf for dubious reasons, in a flawed but fun sequel.
Mr Nice (18)
- The guide
Accomplished young sailor Charlie St. Cloud has the world at his feet. A college scholarship to steer him far away from the limitations of life in his Pacific Northwest hometown, a little brother who idolises him and a talent that will take him around the globe.
But a sudden, tragic, wind-change throws Charlie’s life off course and a flippant promise lightly made becomes a binding vow. When love and hope finally cross Charlie’s path he faces an impossible choice:
To live forever in the past or to take a leap of faith into the future and risk losing the only family he has left.
We should start by saying that I am probably not the target demographic for The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. I am old and cynical and immune to the hypnotic appeal of Mr Efron’s sad puppy/eager puppy countenance. There is »
