The trailer for the Natalie Portman-led film Lucy in the Sky has just been released. In the trailer, Portman plays an astronaut named Lucy Cola who is enamored with space. As she sees Earth from above, she has tears in her eyes and reflects back on her life as it has been on Earth. As the trailer goes on, we see Lucy, now returned to Earth, less and less focused on her family life and more focused on what it takes to get back up to space. Soon, her coworkers notice her erratic behavior and everyone around her begins to worry. As the trailer finishes, Lucy is asked what it’s like in space. True to how she’s been acting on Earth, she describes it as “the only place that makes sense.”
