Not much to see here that wasn't covered in the trailer that we passed along a few days ago, but here is the first one-sheet for Nicole Kidman's next film, Margot at the Wedding. Directed by Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) the film focuses on a 40-something woman, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, whose (apparent) spur of the moment decision to get married prompts the arrival of her disapproving sister, Margot, played by Kidman. The advance buzz on this movie is pretty good, with a few sneak reviews saying that the trailer is covering up more serious elements to the storyline, and that Kidman's performance is what will sell the movie. Jack Black plays the almost-husband of Jason Leigh's character, so I think it's safe to say that he'll be balancing out whatever serious intentions the trailer is masking.

Kidman is currently in Australia, shooting the Baz Luhrmann epic of the same name, and is loosely attached to two future projects -- Need, in which she may co-star with Naomi Watts and Wong Kar Wai's The Lady from Shanghai, which has gone through a lot of shifts over the past couple of years. I'm not up on the latest regarding the project, but something tells me you shouldn't hold your breath for it. As for Jennifer Jason Leigh, she'll next be seen opposite Alec Baldwin in Lymelife, a family dramedy about a marriage that is falling apart. Margot at the Wedding is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 19.
