Natalie Portman is a pop music superstar in the 'Vox Lux' trailer

NEON has just brought online the final trailer for writer and director Brady Corbet’s “Vox Lux,” starring Natalie Portman. It also boasts original songs by Sia and an original score by Scott Walker. It represents the second feature film from Corbet, following 2015’s acclaimed “The Childhood of a Leader”.

In 1999, teenage Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) survives a violent tragedy. After singing at a memorial service, Celeste transforms into a burgeoning pop star with the help of her songwriter sister (Stacy Martin) and a talent manager (Jude Law). Celeste’s meteoric rise to fame and concurrent loss of innocence dovetails with a shattering terrorist attack on the nation, elevating the young powerhouse to a new kind of celebrity: American icon, secular deity, global superstar.

By 2017, adult Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mounting a comeback after a scandalous incident that derailed her career. Touring in support of her sixth album, a compendium of sci-fi anthems entitled “Vox Lux,” the indomitable, foul-mouthed pop savior must overcome her personal and familial struggles to navigate motherhood, madness and monolithic fame in the Age of Terror.

Vox Lux is financed and produced by Bold Films and Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP). ALP’s Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim are producers along with Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa, Bold Films’ Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak and Svetlana Metkina and Brian Young from Three Six Zero Entertainment and Robert Salerno. Portman and Law are executive producers along with Sia.

“Vox Lux” opens in select cities on December 7th, expanding everywhere on the 14th.
