Fox Searchlight has released this new behind-the-scenes featurette that delves into special effects of ‘Black Swan’ – the moments of violence, the mirror sequences and the perceived physical mutations among others. For those who’ve not yet seen the movie: there are some big spoilers here.
Entertainment Weekly was the first to present this new ‘Your Highness’ production still featuring Natalie, Danny McBride and James Franco getting ready to battle in its issue a week ago. Now we have added a high quality version of the still to our gallery. Check it out! ‘Your Highness’ opens in theaters on April 8, 2011. Below is a short synopsis of the movie.
Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Danny McBride and James Franco team up for an epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent’s fiancee before their kingdom is destroyed.
2011 Oscar nominations have been announced just a few minutes ago, and we are happy to inform you that Natalie is nominated as a Best Actress for her performance in ‘Black Swan’! Other nominees in this category are Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Williams. Congratulations to Natalie! The 83rd Academy Awards will take place on the 27th of February this year. Below you can read Natalie’s reaction to her nomination:
I am so honored and grateful to the Academy for this recognition. It is a wonderful culmination of the ten-year journey with [director Darren Aronofsky] to make this film. Making Black Swan is already the most meaningful experience of my career, and the passion shown for the film has completed the process of communication between artists and audience. I am so thankful for the support we have received and I share this honor with the entire cast and crew of the film, especially Darren Aronofsky.
Natalie’s latest film ‘No Strings Attached’ took first place at the box office this weekend! The film earned $20.3 million on 3,018 screens and edged out ‘The Green Hornet’, which earned $18.1 million. ‘Black Swan’ took sixth place with $6.2 million which means Natalie has two movies in the top ten at the same time! These are great numbers, congratulations to Natalie and the cast of the movie!
