'Serena' Starring Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper Hits VOD Feb 26th, Theatrical March 27th; New Photos & Poster

25 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper must like each other a lot. They’ve appeared together in three movies almost in a row: “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle” and now the upcoming and long-delayed “Serena” (which was actually shot before the 'Hustle', the 2nd David O. Russell collaboration, after 'Playbook'). “Jennifer is such a wonderful girl. We’ve had so much fun working together and I’m so proud of her success,” Cooper recently told a South Jersey Magazine. “She’s one of the most down-to-earth and unpretentious individuals you could ever meet, and it’s such a pleasure to spend time with her. Jennifer is incredibly talented and she’s one of those natural performers who are instinctively good at what they do.” The movie’s narrative revolves around the emotional turmoil resulting after Lawrence’s titular character discovers she is unable to bear children and takes her anger out »

Two Game of Thrones Stars Join Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - See Who Else Has Been Attached

24 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been through a lot. David O. Russell was originally set to direct, but he dropped out and Mike White stepped in. Then Craig Gillespie took over, and now Burr Steers is behind the camera. That's just the beginning the musical chairs. The cast has been the subject of rumors and shifts since the project was first announced in 2009. With the latest addition of Game of Thrones' Lena Headey and Charles Dance to the movie, we're sorting out who's actually involved and who has passed on Pride. »

Jack Huston is playing Wickham, a man who Elizabeth falls for as he trains her how to fight back against the zombies.

Jennifer Lawrence For "Dior"

18 September 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images and footage of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence in a recent Dior fashion campaign.

"A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence," said Lawrence, "and can be tough but fair and kind...and also knows how to get what she wants..."

At age 22, Lawrence's performance as 'Tiffany Maxwell' in the David O. Russell-directed romantic comedy "Silver Linings Playbook" (2012) earned her several awards, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) and the Academy Award for Best Actress, making her the second-youngest Best Actress winner at the Oscars.

For her supporting role in Russell's comedy-drama "American Hustle" (2013), she was awarded the Golden Globe Award, the BAFTA Award and received a third Academy Award nomination, all for Best Supporting Actress.

Lawrence is also known for playing 'Raven Darkhölme'/'Mystique' in the superhero film "X-Men: First Class" (2011) and its sequel "X-Men: Days of Future Past »

Huston to Follow Heston as Ben-Hur Casting Announced

17 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Matt Smith joins cast of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'

17 September 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has nabbed a role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel. Smith will play wealthy wife-seeker Mr. Collins opposite Lily James, who stars as Liz Bennett.

The horror-comedy— based on Grahame-Smith’s zombie-infiltrated version of the Jane Austen classic and directed by Burr Steers (17 Again)— also features Douglas Booth, Sam Riley, Jack Huston and Bella Heathcote. The film has had a rocky journey to the big screen, originally to be directed by David O. Russell—who ended up co-writing the screenplay— and cycling through a slew of directors before securing Steers, »

What Really Happened to 'Serena,' Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence

17 September 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Back in 2012, before Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence co-starred in David O. Russell's Oscar-winning "Silver Linings Playbook" and its follow-up "American Hustle," the duo shot period drama "Serena," which was once going to star Angelina Jolie with director Darren Aronofsky.  Oscar-winning Danish auteur Susanne Bier ("A Better World") took the helm for producers Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's 2929 Productions, and has been delayed trying to finish it. Based on Ron Rash's 2008 novel, the film is set in 1929 North Carolina and follows George and Serena Pemberton, ambitious newlyweds with their hearts set on a timber empire. They become obsessed with success, and their lives take a Shakespearean turn when Serena finds that she can't get pregnant and tries to harm her husband's illegitimate son. Why the delays? "Once it finished shooting we've all been busy," Bier told me in Toronto, which invited "Serena," »

'Equalizer's' Denzel Washington won't wait another 12 years to work with Antoine Fuqua again

16 September 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto - When an actor wins an Academy Award he or she usually tries to work with the director who helped guide them to the top of the mountain again.  Often, it has great results.  After winning a best supporting Oscar for "Terms of Endearment" Jack Nicholson reunited with James L. Brooks on "As Good As It Gets" and won best actor.  Jennifer Lawrence immediately worked with her "Silver Linings Playbook" maestro, David O. Russell, on "American Hustle" which resulted in back to back nominations.  Diane Weist won her first Oscar for Woody Allen's "Hannah and Her Sisters" and her second for his comedy "Bullets Over Broadway."  That's just one reason it's somewhat surprising the prolific Denzel Washington took 12 years to reunite with his "Training Day" director, Antoine Fuqua for "The Equalizer." Barely based on the late 1980's TV series of the same name, the new movie finds the »

Trailer for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence's Serena

13 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Serena is a long delayed film that stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence who both starred together in director David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. The movie has been stuck in the post-production process for awhile. Hell, we got our first look at the film two years ago! We've now just gotten the first trailer. These two talents have great on-screen chemistry, and it looks like they give great performances in this film as well. Here's the synopsis:

North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s – George and Serena Pemberton, love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. »

‘Serena’ Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper Fall Badly In Love

12 September 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have starred in successful films together - American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook – though both were under the guidance of eccentric filmmaker David O. Russell. For Serena, “B. Coop” and “J. Law” are getting a change in director – working under Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (Things We Lost in the Fire, Brothers) – and are reaching even further back in time, to the period of the Depression-era south, for a drama about a power couple named the Pembertons (Coop/Law) whose timber empire is threatened by marital secrets.

The trailer above doesn’t directly spell out all of the twists and turns in author Ron Rash’s novel (adapted to the screen by K-19: The Widowmaker screenwriter, Chris Kyle); rather, the trailer teases a bit of the mystery and the darker truths beneath the Pembertons’ marriage, showing imagery that could admittedly be considered spoilers ...

Serena with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence finally gets a trailer

12 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

After over a year since we got a glimpse at a still from Serena, we finally have a trailer for the drama directed by Susanne Bier that reunited Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence after Silver Linings Playbook. Playing a very different couple than in that movie, Serena centers on the tumultuous marriage of George and Serena Pemberton. The Depression-era drama definitely looks ambitious. Even though they appeared in American Hustle for David O. Russell, Lawrence and Cooper didn't share »

Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence are partners in 'Serena' trailer

12 September 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A trailer for the long-gestating Bradley Cooper-Jennifer Lawrence film Serena is finally here, and shows the two actors in their darkest collaboration yet. While Cooper and Lawrence’s David O. Russell movies are rooted in their humor, Serena looks like a flat-out epic drama, complete with falling trees, fire, and blood. The two play a husband and wife running a timber empire in Depression-era North Carolina. Their marital bliss turns sour when Lawrence’s titular character finds out that her husband has a child. Lawrence looks like she is relishing playing the conniving, glamorous Serena, who has drawn »

First ‘Serena’ Trailer Reunites Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

For a while there, it seemed like you couldn’t get a movie made without Bradley Cooper or Jennifer Lawrence getting involved, often at the same time. The pair shot three films together in about two years: David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, and Susanne Bier‘s Serena. The first two of those have […]

Serena Trailer and Posters: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Reunite in Long-Delayed Drama

12 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At long last, the very first Serena trailer and poster for director Susanne Bier’s period drama.  The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as a 1920s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry.  Infidelity and infertility leads Serena (Lawrence) to become suspicious of George’s (Cooper) illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government.  Remember all the buzz surrounding Lawrence and Cooper in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook?  Well Serena was actually shot 10 months before the David O. Russell film came out, so you can say this one has been sitting on the shelf for a spell.  This trailer doesn’t make the movie look especially bad—it looks fine—but alas, as the picture is slated to open overseas next month, a U.S. release date remains elusive.

Now You See Me 2, Dirty Grandpa Set For Release

10 September 2014 4:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate just added two high-profile projects to its upcoming schedule – magician caper sequel Now You See Me 2 and raunchy roadtrip comedy Dirty Grandpa.

The former has been set for June 10th, 2016. It’s a follow-up to last year’s surprise smash hit Now You See Me, which opened to an unexpectedly mighty $29.4 million domestic debut and went on to gross a stellar $351.7 million worldwide.

The sequel is expected to continue the story of The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), skilled magicians who perform heists, now that the enigmatic Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) has inducted them into a secret society of magicians known as the Eye. Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is sitting in the director’s chair, taking over from Louis Leterrier.

Now You See Me 2, as it’s currently known, is only currently facing down video game adaptation Uncharted on that date. »

9 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Lionsgate has staked out a prime summer slot for the sequel to a surprise hit and slapped a new acquisition into the heart of next year’s awards season. The mini-major said today that Now You See Me 2, Summit’s follow-up to the pic that heisted $351.7 million worldwide last year, will open June 10, 2016. As of now, the Jon M. Chu-helmed sequel — which returns key cast members including Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco — is up only against Sony’s vidgame adaptation Uncharted that weekend. Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli wrote the screenplay.

Lionsgate today also set a Christmas Day 2015 release for Dirty Grandpa, the Robert De Niro-Zac Efron road-trip comedy it acquired Monday at Toronto. The film, which Universal picked up as a spec script in 2011 and later put into turnaround, follows a foul-mouthed former Army general who gets to know »
