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, »

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," »

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise. As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol. These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, »

Jennifer Lawrence knows you need more than a pretty face and a hot bod to be beautiful. And on Sunday, the 24-year-old Oscar winner stepped out in Malibu, Calif., with a bold statement about inner beauty emblazoned on her T-Shirt in the form of quote from Roald Dahl's The Twits. It read: "If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." Cute, right? J.Law, who is currently romancing Gwyneth Paltrow's ex Chris Martin, paired her poignant shirt with a pair of tiny Daisy Dukes and flip flops. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 star also pulled hair up in beneath a slouchy gray beanie, toted a hipster-chic weaved purse and rocked pair of »
A bevy of new Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 movie pics are here! Seven new stills from the highly anticipated flick have hit the web to get fans excited. Jennifer Lawrence suits up as Katniss Everdeen in the photos and she certainly look ready to lead a revolution. Fitted with her trusty bows and arrows, Lawrence stands at the center of a salute in one pic. In another, she strikes a pensive and concerned expression while surrounded by her followers from District 13. In a third photo, Lawrence is joined by hunky co-star Liam Hemsworth, who reprises his role as Gale Hawthorne. In the action shot, the two characters run at full speed while wielding weapons.

Magnolia Pictures has acquired Serena, the long-in-the-works Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper film, EW has confirmed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is not looking to release it in the U.S. during Oscar season, instead gearing it up for an early 2015 release.
The fate of Serena, directed by Oscar-winner Susanne Bier, has been a mystery for some time, given that the movie was filmed back in 2012 before either of Lawrence and Cooper’s other collaborations, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, were released. THR’s new story indicates that the film’s quality may be questionable; Magnolia became a “default distributor, »

“Where there’s smoke there’s fire” can be an annoying idiom in the world of movie journalism (or fan blogging or whatever you want to call it set photo speculation these days), because it can be the broadest excuse for 2+2=5 logic. But in the case of Susanne Bier’s long-delayed film “Serena” starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, the writing has been scrawled visibly on the wall for more than a year. When first announced, “Serena”— a Depression-era-set drama about newlyweds running a timber business in North Carolina, which is complicated when the wife cannot bear children — was a film to keep an eye on. But even as the movie moved into post-production, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper became even bigger stars, and it was assumed “Serena” would become an Oscar contender. Not to be, it seems. Shot in 2012, the film spent months in post-production. While many assumed the »

Fans of Danish director Susanne Bier have been crossing their fingers for "Serena." When the project was announced, all the elements of a great film were there: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, surrounded by "Silver Linings Playbook" buzz, would star; Bier, Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner for 2010's "In a Better World," was in the director's chair; Together, they'd translate an acclaimed novel by author Rob Rash. That was in April 2012. Two years of radio silence painted a discouraging picture in need of wishful thinking. Recent weeks proved "Serena" was still alive and kicking. Bier's film would play the London Film Festival in October. A trailer arrived, looking lush, melodramatic, and enticing. Maybe "Serena" wasn't the misstep people feared? Not according to The Hollywood Reporter, who learned that Magnolia Pictures will release the film in 2015 after its sister company, 2929 Productions, the company financing the film, couldn't find other takes. Set in Depression-era North Carolina, »

Susanne Bier's Serena was shot over two years ago, and in addition to starring two of Hollywood's hottest actors—Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper—it's also got a great premise: Set in 1930s North Carolina, the story centers on a couple who move in order to build a timber empire. Their vicious, blind ambition turns them against each other as the sterile wife launches a vendetta against her husband’s illegitimate son. What's not to like? Apparently, everything. Hit the jump for more. The movie finally got a U.K. release date a few weeks ago, and will open on October 24th. But in the U.S., the movie has struggled to find a home, so now Magnolia, the sister company of financier 2929 Productions, has become the default distributor. According to THR, since December the movie has had private screenings featuring three different cuts. One buyer said, "The film was so edited, »

Serena finally has found a home. Magnolia Pictures has picked up U.S. rights to the long-gestating Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper period drama, though with none of the fanfare expected from a film featuring Oscar-caliber names, including director Susanne Bier (2011 foreign-language winner In a Better World). Sources say Magnolia, whose sister company 2929 Productions financed the film, became the default distributor when no other company would take the bait. In fact, since December, CAA — which reps the movie, Bier, Lawrence and Cooper — has held three private screenings featuring three different cuts of the Depression-era film.

This story first appeared in the Sept. 26 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. When hackers grabbed naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and other celebrities this summer, Apple faced harsh criticism for allowing its iCloud security protocol to be breached. Thus far, Google has escaped the microscope. But now Google — no stranger to privacy issues — could face equally tough questions. Just days after the stolen images were published, attorneys for Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander — who has dated Upton — delivered a legal takedown notice to Google that identified 461 URLs that were hosting racy pictures of the couple. A week later, Google had removed 51 percent

In October 2012, Lawrence was announced as the face of Dior. In her new Dior Campaign, she's not only talking about her love for the bags.
"A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence and can be tough but fair and kind," she says. "And also knows how to get what she wants."

What do you think about J. Law's advice for women?
Watch Jennifer Lawrence explain her 2014 Oscars tumble in the video below.

Jennifer Lawrence is waxing poetic on what it takes to be a strong woman in her latest ad campaign video for Dior, and per usual, her advice is very savvy. The video is set to super serious music, and Jennifer poses with gorgeous leather Dior bags while wearing a black suit and her hair slicked back. She isn't nearly as silly as we're used to seeing her during behind-the-scenes stuff (no tripping or eating pizza on a Dior set, clearly). During the video, the 24-year-old actress explains what it means to be a strong woman. "A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence and can be tough but fair and kind," she said. "And also knows how to get what she wants." Agreed! We always knew »
Since splitting from Gwyneth Paltrow in March, Chris Martin has continued putting family first. But with Jennifer Lawrence now in his life, the Coldplay frontman has made fitting in quality time with his new love interest look as easy as his conscious uncoupling from Paltrow, 41. "Jen has made a few visits to his Malibu house," says a source. "Chris seems very respectful of Gwyneth and feels more comfortable spending time with Jen away from his family." Lawrence, 24, and Martin, 37, also stepped out for a romantic date night at Beverly Hills eatery La Dolce Vita on Sept. 8, where an onlooker says »

It seemed fitting when the teen-favorite periodical Seventeen Magazine announced its October 2015 issue would highlight 30 different YouTubers, featuring Bethany Mota on the cover. As this issue hits stands today, editor-in-chief Ann Shoket took to the official YouTube blog to explain why the magazine and its readers are so enamored with these young stars. Shocket primarily cites the down-to-earth, approachable lifestyles and attitudes most YouTube celebrities have compared to traditional media stars. She states that “on YouTube, we root for the people who are sort of unpolished, a little weird even. We connect with them because they show us their authentic selves, because they are accessible to us.” A survey conducted by Variety recently confirmed this accessibility idea. Several questions were posed to U.S. teens about how “real” the survey’s selected new media and traditional media celebrities appeared. The results were more in favor of YouTubers like Smosh and The Fine Bros. »

In a 2011 Vulture article, we sized up the sparse field of young leading men in the movies and plaintively asked, “Where Are the New Leos, Tobeys, and Jakes?” Three years later, that drought has only gotten worse. While the movies can boast a plentiful array of bankable female superstars under 25, including Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley, and Kristen Stewart, their male counterparts are meager, and there’s still no young man with an under-25 career comparable to the one had by Leonardo DiCaprio (who’d been Oscar-nominated for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and toplined the then-biggest movie ever, Titanic, before turning 25), Tobey Maguire (who’d by that age starred in classics like The Ice Storm and The Cider House Rules), or Jake Gyllenhaal (who made Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko, and Jarhead before his 25th birthday).What gives? Vulture put the question to Tobey Maguire himself at the Toronto Film Festival, »

Jennifer Lawrence sees her character Katniss Everdeen pushed to the brink of revolution in the new “Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1″ trailer released today (Sept. 16). She’s still the reluctant leader and leader. “I never wanted any of this,” Katniss says to The President, played by Donald Sutherland, as the clip opens. “I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.” [...] »
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 »

Sometimes working in the entertainment industry means long hours trying to break celeb news or standing on a red carpet smashed between other reporters for hours and hours on end in the hopes that Jennifer Lawrence might show up. It can be grueling, and this job isn't for everyone. But sometimes Krispy Kreme lets you try the new Ghostbuster-themed doughnuts before anyone else and you realize that this is the best job on Planet Earth! Today, two actual Ghostbusters (we refuse to believe they were just actors in costume) delivered the marshmallow-filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts that are being rolled out to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film. "We are truly excited to collaborate with Sony Pictures »
