Full Trailer for JANE GOT A GUN Starring Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman's passion project, Jane Got A Gun, had a long and tumultuous road to the big screen after several pre-production delays that included director Lynne Ramsey exiting the project on the same day shooting was scheduled to begin. This was followed by the exit of star Jude Law and a roster of rotating actors coming in and out of the project including the likes of Bradley Cooper for a role that was finally filled by Ewan Mcgregor. Joel Edgerton also stars as his Warrior director, Gavin O'Connor, took over the reigns from Ramsey and has seemingly guided this project to something that looks to be more than serviceable given the many hiccups along the way. In this first full trailer for the film we are given an extensive look at both the story the film is telling and Portman's titular outlaw. Naturally, this film will stand out for being a western in and of itself given the genre isn't exactly thriving at the moment (unless you're Quentin Tarantino), but more is the fact it features a female in the lead role competing with every other skilled male gunslinger that populates the wild west. There is no doubt Jane Got A Gun will pass the Bechdel Test when it opens on January 29, 2016. Noah Emmerich, Rodrigo Santoro, and Boyd Holbrook also star.



Synopsis: “Jane Got a Gun” centers on Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman), who has built a new life with her husband Bill “Ham” Hammond (Noah Emmerich) after being tormented by the ultra-violent Bishop Boys outlaw gang. She finds herself in the gang’s cross-hairs once again when Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Boys and their relentless mastermind Colin (Ewan McGregor). 

With the vengeful crew hot on Ham’s trail, Jane has nowhere to turn but to her former fiancĂ© Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) for help in defending her family against certain destruction. Haunted by old memories, Jane’s past meets the present in a heart-stopping battle for survival.
