"People need their history… People need to know that real men actually lived here." Fox Searchlight has revealed a new full-length trailer for Pablo Larrain's second film this year, titled Jackie, his first English-language feature (his other film is Neruda). Natalie Portman stars as First Lady Jackie Kennedy, profiling her experiences after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1966. The full cast includes Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, John Carroll Lynch, Richard E. Grant and Max Casella. This is one of the best films of the year, I can't recommend it enough. Don't be surprised when Portman wins another Oscar for her performance. Do not miss this film.
Here's the second official trailer for Pablo Larraín's Jackie, direct from Fox Searchlight's YouTube:
You can still see the first teaser trailer for Pablo Larraín's Jackie here, to compare these two trailers.
Following the assassination of her husband, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Portman) fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy. Jackie is directed by award-winning Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, making his English-language debut this time, after the acclaimed films Neruda, The Club, No, Post Mortem, Tony Manero and Fuga previously. The screenplay is written by Noah Oppenheim (Allegiant, The Maze Runner). This first premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this year, and is also playing at the New York Film Festival. Fox Searchlight will release Larraín's Jackie in theaters starting December 2nd this fall. Highly recommend catching this film.
