Natalie Portman Sing Sia’s ‘Wrapped Up’ in Latest ‘Vox Lux’ Trailer
“Tonight, we’re gonna bring it back to where it all began,” Natalie Portman says at the beginning of the latest trailer for Brady Corbet’s “Vox Lux.”
The trailer cuts to a young girl — introduced as Celeste Montgomery, a young version of Portman’s character — singing at a vigil held for a slain student.
After a few shots of Celeste dancing and receiving a brain scan, the song is taken up by the present-day version of her, on stage and singing to thousands of people in a glitzy, feathered costume.
The film follows Celeste, who becomes a pop star after she and her sister survive a tragic accident as teenagers and compose a song, which catapults them to fame. The first half of the movie tracks their trajectory, with Celeste becoming the on-stage sensation, while her sister Eleanor takes creative responsibilities. In the second half, set in 2017, 31-year-old Celeste now has a daughter and must navigate her life as her career becomes rife with scandals and another act of violence sends her reeling.
