Nicole Kidman teamed up once again with her "Moulin Rouge" director, Baz Luhrmann, for the western epic, "Australia," co-starring Hugh Jackman.
The plot is interesting:
Luhrmann's film is set in northern Australia prior to World War II and centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a cattle station the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn stock-man (Jackman) to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.
It's been a while since Nicole had a hit, either critical or commercial, so returning back to Luhrmann's arms maybe the key. Plus, I love Hugh Jackman! He's a great actor, and a sweet man in person.
Take a look at the new trailer of "Australia." The film opens November 14.

We saw Natalie Portman shaved her head for "V for Vendetta," and Sigourney Weaver for "Alien 3," now, Cameron goes for a completely dramatic transformation for her next project, "My Sister's Keeper."
This is the film that the Fanning Sisters, Dakota and Elle, were attached to co-star, but they abruptly left production. Rumor has it because Dakota didn't want to shave her head as a cancer-stricken daughter of Cameron.
Why can't she be as brave as Miss Diaz? Click here to see more photos of the baldie Cameron!
