Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher’s No Strings has had its first trailer released online.
Despite that title insinuating seriously good times had by all, it’s depressing to find we’re firmly in romcom territory.

What makes us actually care is that this hot chick is Natalie Portman, seemingly in a bit of a career crunch considering she’s following the epic Black Swan with tosh. Well-intentioned tosh, no doubt, but tosh nonetheless.
