Jennifer Lawrence Grabs Dinner With a Familiar Face

21 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Lawrence looked as chic as ever when she attended a group dinner with director David O. Russell in NYC on Wednesday. The pair was seen leaving the Greenwich Hotel together before they met up with a larger group for dinner at Il Mulino. Jennifer and David's Big Apple meeting was likely to discuss their latest project together, Joy, which is set to begin filming soon. The movie will follow the rags-to-riches tale of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano and is slated for a December 2015 release date. Jennifer will tackle the lead role for the film, which will mark her third partnership with David. It's been a fruitful collaboration for the two, as Jennifer earned the Oscar for best actress for 2012's Silver Linings Playbook. She also earned an Oscar nomination last year for her role in David's American Hustle but ultimately lost out to Lupita Nyong'o. »

Star Wars Scares Off Kung Fu Panda 3; Release Date Pushed to March 18, 2016

11 December 2014 1:53 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Disney plopped the first new Star Wars film in a decade on the December 18, 2015 weekend, we knew there would be casualties.  No studio wants its movie to be in the wake of what’s sure to be a massive box office run, and we now have another causality to Star Wars’ dominance.  DreamWorks Animation has moved the Kung Fu Panda 3 release date from its previous holiday debut of December 23, 2015, pushing the animated sequel all the way to March 18, 2016.  The new date sets the film opposite the release of Lionsgate’s The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Part 1, which is the first half of the conclusion to the Divergent franchise. Hit the jump for more, including release date shifts for Pan and Warner Bros.’ horror film Gallows. The release date shift news comes courtesy of Variety.  DreamWorks Animation currently has the Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey-led Boss Baby scheduled for March »

Jennifer Lawrence For Ghostbusters 3? We Have Momentum

11 December 2014 11:09 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One name you don.t hear associated with Ghostbusters casting rumors has been Jennifer Lawrence. And why would you? The multi-talented actress already has two franchises to her name in The Hunger Games and the X-Men series. When she isn.t lending her powers to a tentpole, she.s contending for Oscars in a David O. Russell drama like American Hustle or Joy. But her name is now in the Ghostbusters conversation, mainly because she put it there. MTV UK spent their past few junket slots asking major movie stars who they.d like to see in Paul Feig.s all-female Ghostbusters movie. They questioned the Interstellar cast, the Exodus: Gods and Kings cast, and the Hunger Games crew. During which, Jennifer Lawrence admitted to meeting with Feig about the movie over dinner. It was a very casual name drop, and it even took her Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth »

And now THR reports Deliver Us from Evil star Edgar Ramirez, who will be seen next year in the remake of Point Break, has joined the film before production begins in February. Ramirez will play Mangano's husband, who is dapper, but has also taken to sleeping around behind her back. Who in their right mind would cheat on Jennifer Lawrence? Read on!

Natalie Portman Passes On Steve Jobs Biopic; Jennifer Lawrence Finds A Husband For David O. Russell's 'Joy' & More

9 December 2014 8:54 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When was the last time a picture had this many public problems? “Jane’s Got A Gun”? Ironically, the star of that film Natalie Portman has passed on co-starring alongside Michael Fassbender in the Steve Jobs biopic that will be directed by Danny Boyle. Aaron Sorkin wrote the script and Seth Rogen will play Steven Wozniak (no word on those Jessica Chastain rumors yet). Sony Pictures was originally going to make the film, but got cold feet and put it in turnaround. Universal rescued the picture and despite its many ups and downs, production is still on track to start in the spring. No reason was given for Portman passing, though other female actresses are currently meeting for the role. Meanwhile, in more positive news for the film, "The Newsroom" star Jeff Daniels is being eyed to play former Apple CEO John Sculley. [Variety/The Wrap] Shooting is right around the corner on »

Bsfc, Lafca, and Nyfco: Their 2014 Winners

7 December 2014 10:11 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

My apologies to Boston, Los Angeles and the online contingency of New York City for their shared billing but what can you do? When they all announce on the same weekend they share column space. The DC Film Critics also announced nominations today but in the interest of sanity, Tfe only covers actual awards from critics groups, not their nomination rounds (which give performers and films no real juice publicity wise anyway); we have 30+ critics organizations in the Us alone so any requested  coverage other than wins for the non-institutions feels ego-driven.

It was another good day for Birdman and Boyhood or "Boyman" as Sasha likes to call it. Particularly Boyhood which no films seem to be able to squirm around for top billing. Grand Budapest Hotel probably came close in L.A., Birdman looked like a distant second in Boston, but Nyfco seemed very committed. Is it now the Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture? »
