‘Pale Blue Dot’: First Image Reveals Natalie Portman In The Noah Hawley Directed Film!! Check It Out!!

Fox Searchlight has released the first image from the sci-fi film Pale Blue Dot, the feature directing debut of TV’s resident mind-bender Noah Hawley. The photo shows off Natalie Portman—who replaced Reese Witherspoon in the project back in January—in character as Lucy Cola, suited up in a NASA uniform.

Not a ton of info is out there about the film just yet, other than A) it revolves around a love triangle between an astronaut freshly returned from outer space and losing her grip on reality, her husband, and a colleague, and B) the cast is absolutely capital-letter Stacked. Besides Portman, Jon Hamm is onboard as the fellow astronaut who begins the affair, Zazie Beetz—having one hell of a year—will play a trainee who gets involved with this hot space mess, and Legion star Dan Stevens will re-team with Hawley to play Portman’s husband.

But this is Noah Hawley we’re talking about. Legend has it that the writer/director once tried to tell a story in a linear, straight-forward fashion and the effort nearly killed him. Anyone who has seen a second of Legion—or even Hawley’s Fargo TV adaptation, which isn’t as weird but certainly makes a point to be as inventive as possible in its storytelling—knows we’re not in for a straightforward love story among the stars here. There will be trickery. There will be time-jumping. The camera will be upside down for roughly 20% of the film’s runtime.

Either way, we probably don’t have to worry about Pale Blue Dot distinguishing itself from fellow upcoming NASA-set stories First Man from director Damien Chazelle and Hulu’s Sean Penn-led series The First.

Check out the image below.
