Last week, we mocked the idea that Angelina Jolie’s absence could sink a movie (let alone any actress’s), and shockingly Gravity is still on its feet. The sky didn’t fall. Plus, it’s looking at a great talent to fill the main role that would be age-appropriate and be able to, you know, act.

The offer is out to Natalie Portman who now finds herself surrounded with Oscar buzz the same way Jake Sully found himself surrounded by those floating ghost tree seed things in Avatar. That’s not a simile – Oscar buzz looks exactly like those things. It’s a nuisance, really.
