Pictured here is the first glimpse of actress Natalie Portman dressed as ballet dancer Nina in acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky’s new supernatural thriller Black Swan. While the costume lacks the je ne sais quoi (that’s French for sluttiness) of her stripper outfit in Closer, it does make me want to bang the hell out of a bird.
Black Swan stars Portman, Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, and Kristina Anapau as dancers competing to land a role in their company’s production of “Swan Lake.” The film has generated a lot of buzz thanks in part to a reportedly graphic sex scene between Portman and Kunis.
The film also stars Barbara Hershey (Riding the Bullet) as Nina’s mother, Sebastian Stan, and Vincent Cassel (The Cross) as the ballet’s director Yevna.
Black Swan will open the Venice International Film Festival on Sept 1.
