Black Swan

Natalie Portman: Even though she hasn’t appeared on-screen since the summer of 2011 (to spend time with her new son), Natalie Portman has been named the “Best Actor for the Buck” by Forbes Magazine. That decision is based largely on the box office returns of 2010’s Black Swan, which reportedly cost $13 million to make and grossed more than $329 million worldwide. Kristen Stewart ranked second.

Phantom Trailer: Ed Harris, David Duchovny, William Fitchtner, Sean Patrick Flanery and Johnathon Schaech all go under the sea in Phantom, an upcoming submarine thriller set during the Cold War. A new trailer teases a mysterious, deadly mission. The movie is due out on March 1, 2013. [First Showing]



Grand Budapest Hotel: A while back, we heard that Jason Schwartzman had joined Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Owen Wilson and Jude Law in Wes Anderson’s next movie, Grand Budapest Hotel, and now comes word from the director himself that Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, F. Murray Abraham, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Mathieu Amalric and Saoirse Ronan will also have roles of one kind or another. It’s a period “Euro movie,” according to Anderson, who declined to say any more about it. [The Hollywood Reporter]

A Good Day to Die Hard TV Spot: Bruce Willis returns to active duty as John McClane in A Good Day to Die Hard, set to explode in theaters on February 14, 2013. The first TV spot for the movie leans heavily on the big action set pieces that we’ve already seen teased in trailers, as well as familiar catchphrases and, of course, a smiling Bruce Willis. [Coming Soon]
