Natalie Portman, Academy Award winning actress is probably not used to delays when it comes to her projects so the news that her upcoming movie 'producer' effort "Jane's Got a Gun" would be pushed back from August 29 to February 20 was likely not initially received with an "it's ok" sentiment.
The Harvard educated actress as a producer and star of the film has had to deal with numerous changes during the film that some entertainment insiders speculate she will not soon forget. The project made headlines right from the star when the original director Lynne Ramsay left the project. Shortly afterward prominent actors Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Bradley Cooper joined and then dropped out. As such, fans can safely assume that she won't be sending them gift basket or 'thank you' cards anytime soon.
Actors and directors leaving the project during its early stages did not create favourable publicity for the film, a project in which she is both the star and producer but the change of date might be one of the best things that could have happened to the movie.
The end of August as a release date for any movie that has Natalie Portman as a star is not a great date because most people are on vacation or trying to enjoy the last days of summer. A mid-winter release date could make it a fun 'date' night movie and potentially result in the movie becoming a winner at the box office.
If Natalie Portman's movie "Jane's Got a Gun" wins at the box office fans should not be surprised to see her speak out in a critical manner about some of the challenges her film faced and the departures of some her respected acting colleagues.
Natalie Portman has not been associated with many films that do not do well at the box office and some entertainment insiders feel that this film when released will surprise critics with the quality of the performances and its success at the box office.
