It's hard to believe, but the last time we saw Natalie Portman on the big screen was in "Thor," and the next time we'll see her on the big screen is in the sequel this fall. And while she has a small handful of movies in the bank on the way, including two with Terrence Malick as well as the western "Jane Got a Gun," another project has emerged and made its way online.

Natalie Portman Illusions & Mirrors

It's hard to believe, but the last time we saw Natalie Portman on the big screen was in "Thor," and the next time we'll see her on the big screen is in the sequel this fall. And while she has a small handful of movies in the bank on the way, including two with Terrence Malick as well as the western "Jane Got a Gun," another project has emerged and made its way online.

Entitled "Illusions & Mirrors," this newly released two-minute short was directed by Iranian artist Shirin Neshat, and according to a Natalie Portman fansite, is a small segment of a longer 10-minute effort the duo are collaborating on for Dior called "Through The Abyss" that will debut later this year. Anyway, this mini-version was created for the Vienna International Film Festival and features Portman walking around a beach and meeting a few mysterious people. And that's it. But lensed by Darius Khondji, who previously framed Portman in Wong Kar-Wai's "My Blueberry Nights," it certainly looks really good. 

Give it a spin below and if you're in Austria, you can catch it in theaters on the big screen as well until the festival starts on October 24th.
