AceShowbiz - Natalie Portman goes in space in "Lucy in the Sky", which first teaser trailer has been released for viewing pleasure. Previously known as "Pale Blue Dot", the movie is inspired by the true story of NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak, who made headlines in 2007 for allegedly assaulting an Air Force captain.
The video opens with Portman's Lucy in space with other crew members, looking awestruck by what she sees from the spaceship. But upon returning to Earth, she struggles to get back into a normal routine with her family, which includes her daughter and her husband, played by Dan Stevens.
"I just feel a little off," Lucy confesses to her friends at one point. "You go up there. You see the whole universe. And everything here looks so small." She then begins having an affair with fellow astronaut Mark Goodwin (Jon Hamm), who tries to help her hold on to her sanity. "You got to see the vast celestial everything, and it blew your mind. So, now, nothing makes sense," he tells her.
Towards the end, the video shows trippy scenes that hint at Lucy's madness as she stands still in the rain and a woman is seen being chased by a police car. At the end of it, Lucy is trying to convince someone, "I'm fine."
Nowak was arrested and charged in 2007 with the attempted kidnapping of U.S. Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman, who was romantically involved with astronaut William Oefelein. In 2009, she pleaded guilty to charges of felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.
"Lucy in the Sky" is directed by "Fargo" and "Legion" creator Noah Hawley, marking his directorial feature film debut. Supporting the cast are Zazie Beetz, Ellen Burstyn, Colman Domingo and Nick Offerman among others. The drama film is expected to arrive later this year, but no release date is set just yet.
