New Vox Lux trailer: Back to where it all began
NEON has released the second official trailer for the upcoming musical drama, Vox Lux, starring Natalie Portman and Jude Law. The new trailer dives into the past of Portman’s Celeste, revealing more of the pop star’s history. Check out the trailer now below!
Vox Lux follows the rise of Celeste from the ashes of a major national tragedy to pop superstardom. The film spans 15 years and traces important cultural moments through the singer’s eye, starting in 1999 and ending in the present day. Grammy-nominated recording artist Sia will write all the original songs for the film.
The movie begins in 1999 when teenage sisters Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) and Eleanor (Stacy Martin) survive a seismic, violent tragedy. The sisters compose and perform a song about their experience, making something lovely and cathartic out of catastrophe — while also catapulting Celeste to stardom. By 2017, the now 31-year-old Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mother to a teenage daughter of her own and struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals when another act of terrifying violence demands her attention.
The film stars Academy Award winner Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Annihilation, Thor: The Dark World), Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Captain Marvel), Raffey Cassidy (Tomorrowland, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), Stacy Martin and Jennifer Ehle.
Written and directed by Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader), Vox Lux is produced by Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim alongside 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. Portman, Law and Sia will executive produce.
Vox Lux will arrive in select theaters on December 7, 2018. Columbia Records and Three Six Zero Recordings will release the Vox Lux Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on December 14, which features original songs written by Sia and an original score by Scott Walker.
