Natalie Portman Picks Her Weapon of Choice in the First Clip from ‘Jane Got a Gun’

     January 7, 2016


After much behind-the-scenes drama and multiple delays, Gavin O’Connor’s Western drama Jane Got a Gun will finally be making its way into theaters later this month. The story finds Natalie Portman playing the title character, a pioneer woman who’s forced to turn to her former fiancé Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) in order to defend her wounded husband (Noah Emmerich) against the Bishop Boys, a vicious gang of outlaws led by Colin McCann (Ewan McGregor).

In a new clip from the film, we see Jane sharpening her gun-slinging skills under Frost’s tutelage. While the revolver may not be her weapon of choice, Jane does quite well behind the stock of a Winchester rifle. It’s a nice little clip that takes a peek into the relationship between Jane and Frost, but out of context it leaves audiences wanting to know more. Luckily they can see Jane Got a Gun, also starring Boyd Holbrook and Rodrigo Santoro, starting January 29th.

Watch the clip from Jane Got a Gun below (via EW):

Here’s the official synopsis for Jane Got a Gun:

“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 fiancé 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.
