Natalie Portman aims for another Oscar as Jackie Kennedy in the 'Jackie' trailer

Natalie Portman has been under the radar recently as she’s taken on motherhood and directing her first feature film, but the actress has proven once more that she should be in the conversation of top actresses working today with her performance in “Jackie.” 

The explosive portrayal of a grieving Jackie Kennedy following the assassination of John F. Kennedy in has been receiving rave reviews since “Jackie” premiered at the Venice Film Festival. The film then found itself in an intense bidding war after it played at the Toronto International Film Festival (Fox Searchlight came out as the winning distributor). 

Portman could find herself with an Oscar nomination for the role (she won the best actress Oscar in 2011 for “Black Swan”). 

Here’s the first trailer for “Jackie,” which displays Portman’s powerful performance alongside the movie’s haunting score.

Fox Searchlight will release the film in select theatres starting December 2.
