Now that Natalie Portman is the equivalent of a gold-medal-winning all-around gymnast (“The Nastia Liukin of pop culture!” –Entertainment Weekly), we get to see the trailer for a movie she filmed two years ago, The Other Woman. It’ll be available On Demand on Jan. 1 and in a few theaters Feb. 4. It is not a Black Swan clone about ice skating, but it is kind of a Stepmom clone about a child-wary woman who just can’t cope. Except in The Other Woman, Lisa Kudrow plays the real mom, a baby’s death stands in for Susan Sarandon’s cancer, »

By now you've probably heard the exciting news that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millipeid, the Black Swan pair who've been our "crush of the moment" for too many moments now (see sidebar), are pregnant and engaged.

There's no exact word on when either of the blessed events (baby & wedding) are to occur though hundreds of thousands of years of human history tell us that the genetically lucky baby, certain to possess both dark haired beauty and physical grace, is coming in 2011.
We immediately tweeted advocating for a swan-themed wedding. Which is an obvious joke but come on. Swan has to be a common theme for weddings anyway and the possibilities are endless. Here are some other great suggestions from friends @jigsawlounge, @joereid and @moviedork18 on twitter.

Sean Kingston has treated his fans with a music video for new single "Party All Night (Sleep All Day)". The singer who collaborates with Justin Bieber in "Eenie Meenie" leads a life of leisure and breaks all the rules in this fresh clip. He sleeps throughout the day, and hits the dance floor all night after the sun sets.
This dance floor-ready track is produced by Stargate and has been made available for download on various online stores. On part of the song, the 20-year-old singer is heard singing, "We like to sleep all day and party all night/ This is how we like to live our life/ I got a feeling everything is gonna be alright."
Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
Running Time: 1 hr 47 mins
Release Date: December 10, 2010 (limited)
Plot: A ballet dancer (Portman) finally gets a big break with her company doing a production of “Swan Lake,” but a rival (Kunis) may want her top spot.
Who’S It For? Do you like an uncomfortable lingering vibe that keeps you on edge (I do). Also, there will be nominations with this film, so add it to your list if you want to be in the know.
Expectations: I couldn’t say I was excited. I’m not really a fan of ballet, but director Aronofsky always brings something to the table. You can say the same for Portman.
Natalie Portman as Nina Sayers: Good lord. First, she’s never done something so sheepish. You desperately want her to speak up. »

Natalie Portman is currently starring in the very dark, very adult film, Black Swan. But flashback to 1996, and she was a bright-eyed actress playing a wise-beyond-her-years preteen named Marty in Beautiful Girls. Even though Portman was still relatively unknown at the time, I remember being completely charmed by her performance in the film. In one of my favorite scenes, Marty suggests to Will (Timothy Hutton), that they get together - five years down the road, of course. Is her May-December flirtation wrong? Sure, but it's also kind of sweet. Watch the clip again. »

Black Swan arrives in theaters today after a long promotional road for its stars, so for this week's installment of Flashback Friday, we're taking a look back at Natalie Portman from 1996. Her new movie with Mila Kunis is a big hit with Buzz, but back then 14-year-old Natalie was out making the media rounds to promote Beautiful Girls. Alec Baldwin was also on that evening's program, and the two stars ended up having some hilarious and slightly age-inappropriate banter about drugs, grades, and threesomes - check out the video below! »
One critic gushes that the psychological drama and its star, Natalie Portman, are 'unmissable and unforgettable.'

Only folks in eight select major metropolitan cities across North America will have a chance to see "Black Swan" this weekend. And as for the weekend after that, unless you're a proud resident of, say, Detroit or happen to be swooping into St Louis for a little holiday, you'll still be out of luck. The rest of the country will have to wait a full two weeks from now, as Fox Searchlight slowly rolls out this Oscar darling about the ultra-competitive world of professional ballet.
Is it any consolation to say that even if you can't see "Black Swan" this weekend, you can at least read the thoughts of those who have? Well, you can, because reviews for Darren Aronofsky's follow-up »

In Mad Men at the Movies we investigate the cinematic references in the Emmy winning drama Mad Men. Though we accidentally took a one month hiatus from this series (due to a paucity of movie references) we shouldn't have. The series is mainly an excuse to talk about the show. It's the best on television. In fact, I haven't loved a show as much as Mad Men since the heyday of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (circa 1998/1999)... inbetween those two titans only Battlestar Galactica and Once & Again got to me in similarly seismic ways. Which is to say, I love it madly. If I were to coincidentally receive an old engagement ring right before watching an episode, I would undoubtedly impulsively propose to it. »

Mad Men starts to wrap up in the third to last episode with this week's "Chinese Wall." Drowning in the loss of Lucky Strike, the partners at Scdp scramble to try and build a lifeboat. They're trying to save their agency, while their personal lives all move forward, and into the office. The "Chinese wall" that Faye brought up when we first see her in bed with Don in "The Beautiful Girls," separates business from personal life. In this episode, the Chinese wall comes down, and their personal lives enter the office, and the office enters their personal lives. Trudy's in labor, Pete's back and forth from the hospital, Peggy's having sex with Abe in her office, Faye lets her wall down, Megan hits on Don, more sex in the office, Stan hits on Peggy, Joan rejects Roger at home, »

The foundations are shakey at Scdp and “Chinese Wall” explores what happens when the news that their biggest client is jumping ship. This episode was far from a sinking ship and is another chapter in an extremely strong season.
Roger has known this bad news for Scdp for a couple of weeks (and found out last episode) and rather than revealing this to the company he has buried his head in the sand. We get to see Roger in defensive mode and behaving at his most petulant and vulnerable. When he seeks comfort in Joan and is rejected, in spite of his churlish behaviour John Slattery still makes us feel sympathy for this character. Even a box of his book ‘Sterling’s Gold’ does nothing to lift his spirits (though I would really love a copy).

I lost count of how many times I rolled my eyes during tonight's Mad Men. All the characters were doing a righteous job of being extra pathetic, with a few exceptions, of course.
Ranging from making Pete into the company's scapegoat to Don deciding to branch out and cheat on his girlfriend, this episode was especially rich in character flaws. "The Chinese Wall" seemed to be a response to the episode "The Beautiful Girls," which aired two weeks ago. In that episode, Peggy, Faye and Joan were thrown into some rough situations and by the end, we got a shot of them on the elevator, with the door closing, all three looking pensive. Last night, we were thrown a couple of new curve balls for the women, and it wouldn't be Mad Men if the men weren't also striking out.

This week's episode of Mad Men "The Beautiful Girls" contained no movie references -- unless you count Faye calling Don "Mr Bond" (we think we heard that?) when he pried too much into her business with other ad agencies -- and a few celebrity name-droppings in a pitch meeting. What we did get is a lot of forward movement on Mad Men's quest to illustrate the 60s itself as a character. Vietnam is starting to scare these familiar faces and the burgeoning civil rights movement is starting to interfere with their perceptions of self.

Mad Men probably won't win any new fans with that bad neighborhood mugging scene, since they've already been criticized in some quarters for the (mostly) all-white cast. But Mad Men's focus has always been a very specific type of people, ad men in midtown, »

Just yesterday we told you that Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, The Day the Earth Stood Still) and Elle Fanning (Vivaldi, Somewhere) had been cast in the J.J. Abrams‘ top-secret science fiction collaboration with Steven Spielberg, entitled Super 8.
Now, THR reports that Abrams has fleshed out the rest of his main cast with the likes of Ron Eldard (Freedomland), Noah Emmerich (Beautiful Girls), Gabriel Basso (The Big C), Zach Mills (Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium), as well as relative unknowns Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths and Ryan Lee.
Super 8 started filming yesterday in Weirton, West Virginia and AICN got their hands on some pictures of the West Virginia town, after it’s transformation into 1979 Lillian, Ohio. Check them out below!

Last night's episode, "The Beautiful Girls," is all about Mad Men's ladies. The men and the business fall into the background, as we focus on women in the work place, dealing with issues other than work. The episode centers around Faye, Sally, Miss Blankenship, Peggy and Joan -- all in different stages of life, dealing with their own roles as women as well as their roles with the men that rely on them. We see how much better Don's doing with Faye in his life. Since his rehabilitation last week, he's very much improved. He's drinking, but within reason and under control, he's back in shape and finally looks hot again. Faye's bringing him back from the dead, rattling the bed posts and almost breaking a lamp. Last week dropping her at her door was all Don could offer, but »

I say .most. because the episode focused on the important women in Don Draper.s (Jon Hamm) life asserting their independence, and Betty (January Jones) was basically missing in action (woo!). We saw Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) defend her career choice to a rabble-rousing suitor, Sally... More >> »

A Paramount Pictures press release confirmed Chandler and Fanning as the leads, and added relatively unknown actors Ron Eldard (Freedomland), Noah Emmerich (Beautiful Girls), Gabriel Basso (’The Big C”), Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills (Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium).
In typical Abrams’ fashion, we know very little about what the movie is about. Outside of a few seemingly unrelated viral marketing reveals, we unfortunately only know what was shown in the roughly two minute teaser trailer of a mysterious train derailing that contains an unseen menace. There have been unconfirmed rumors that the story centers on three young children who discover alien footage on a Super 8 reel.
The project is not a sequel to the Abrams-produced Cloverfield and »

This is a recap for the ninth episode of Season 4 of Mad Men starring Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, January Jones, and a slew of other talented actors, on an episode called “The Beautiful Girls.” There was no recap last week as I had just moved to Los Angeles and was busy putting my “life” “together.” So, without further ado and with thanks for your patience, here is your For Your Consideration Recap: The Only Reason To Leave An Orange Soda And Turkey Wrap Behind…. …Is getting a little Dick Whitman. And while the tasteful people behind Mad Men refrained from showing us the sweaty, wild animal sex Don and Dr. Faye Miller were having, they did give us this fabulous little moment that was begging to be GIFted: Don’S Chest Hair Looks Awfully Familiar… Because It Looks Exactly Like E.T. Only, in this scenario, E.T. phone ho. »
