Natalie Portman in yet another film! “Other Woman” gets poster, trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Is there a movie coming out in 2011 that doesn’t star Natalie Portman?

OK, we’re exaggerating, because the actress appears to be in so many features that are dancing across our radar for the coming year … and this, on top of the fact that she’ll be busy promoting “Black Swan” through the busy awards season. There’s “No Strings Attached” with Ashton Kutcher. Next she’ll be in the stoner comedy “Your Highness” with James Franco and Danny McBride. In the summertime, Portman mixes fantasy with comic-book reality to play the love interest in “Thor.”

And did we mention she’s about to have her first baby?

So yeah, 2011 is going to be monumental for Ms. Portman, and we’re finding out it just got busier. Don Roos’ “The Other Woman,” a holdover picture Portman filmed a few years back, is eyeballing a limited release in February. It stars Portman as a woman who loses her baby, then must deal with the repercussions the death has on her immediate, makeshift family.

Though the movie played the Toronto International Film Festival (and, later, the American Film Market) in 2009, it failed to secure major distribution and sat on a shelf waiting for its moment.

Now, with Portman’s star shining about as bright as possible, IFC is testing the waters with a Feb. 4 limited release for the film, an adaptation of Ayelet Waldman’s “Love and Other Impossible Pursuits.”

Yet the trailer, which arrived online, makes it look a lot like “Rabbit Hole,” only more of a TV-movie-of-the-week version of the same story.

We shall see if this one catches on. We have a trailer and the poster. More on “The Other Woman” as it develops. As least if it fails to find an audience, Portman will have three or four movies on its heels to make up for it.
