Jennifer Lawrence will continue to make movies with David O. Russell until the day the director dies, she said in a Q&A following a screening of “Joy” on Saturday night. The relationship between the director and the actress, she added with a grin, warranted a pair of adjectives: “sweet” and “fucked up.” Lawrence plays the title role in “Joy,” the third collaboration between her and Russell, after “Silver Linings Playbook” (for which she won an Oscar) and “American Hustle.” The new movie is one of the last big 2015 awards hopefuls to be unveiled for the press and for guild. »

Jennifer Lawrence on Saturday said her film “Joy” is a tribute to “women who are the unsung heroes of their households.” She also paid tribute to writer-director David O. Russell, saying she would do “anything with David until the day I die.”
Russell in turn said that in their third film collaboration, “She’s the first character we’ve done together who’s not crazy.”
The remarks came after simultaneous screenings in New York and L.A. of the film, which is the last big Oscar hopeful of 2015 to be unveiled. The Q&A session in N.Y. was satellite-fed to the Zanuck Theatre on the Fox lot. “Joy” opens on December 25.
Lawrence said the character, inspired by the real-life inventor Joy Mangano, “had a fire and gift that she had buried for 17 years.” The film is loosely based on Mangano’s life as a single mother of three »

David O. Russell’s Joy, one of the last of the year-end awards hopefuls still awaiting release, held its first screenings today in Los Angeles and New York. Loosely based on the life of Joy Mangano, the inventor and entrepreneur behind the Miracle Mop and a string of other household products, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence as the title character, a woman determined to forge her own way in life and business. The film, which Fox will release Dec. 25, marks Lawrence’s third collaboration with Russell, following 2011’s Silver Linings Playbook, for which she won the best actress Oscar, and

The boxing drama “Creed” is coming through like a champ in its debut at the box office over the Thanksgiving weekend. However, it won’t catch “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” which will win the five-day weekend with around $75 million, or “The Good Dinosaur,” the Pixar Animation family film that will be the runner-up with around $55 million through Sunday for Disney. “Mockingjay,” the finale in Lionsgate’s young adult franchise starring Jennifer Lawrence, took in $21.5 million Friday, double its $10.4 million Thanksgiving Day haul. But the “Rocky” revival is going to punch out north of $40 million over the five days and. »

Did someone just rain on Amy Schumer's Thanksgiving parade? The Trainwreck star appeared to have the ultimate holiday when she spent this week by the beach with Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari. You know, just a casual, typical Thursday. But once she returned home to spend some quality time with her best girlfriends, things took a turn when one Bff had an announcement: Yes, someone just got engaged during the holidays. "Very happy for this skank," Schumer joked on social media with a few priceless reactions single people can totally relate to. "So happy for her." She later pointed to the ring on Instagram with the simple caption, "It's on." You know it's the »
Ahoy folks. I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a while now, as you all know, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point for 2015 as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do (with today also Black Friday, as we all do shopping, voters in various precursors are watching screeners). SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in »

Sometimes the internet conjures up something that immediately provokes you to rise to your feet and clap in appreciation. Most of the time it involves a cat being a dick. But on this rare occasion, one nifty YouTube video has decided to riff on the rather ridiculous name of Josh Hutchinson.s character in The Hunger Games franchise to depict Jennifer Lawrence.s Katniss Everdeen repeatedly, and loudly, declaring her love for pita, not Peeta. It.s stupid. It.s ridiculous. It.s also really, really funny. Well played, internet. Well played, indeed. For some inexplicable reason, especially since the video is basically just the same joke being told over and over and over again, the gag just gets funnier with each passing cut. Maybe it.s just because the world loves Jennifer Lawrence so damn much, and everything that.s even remotely connected to her instantly manages to go »

"Real or not real?" Peeta famously asks in the Mockingjay book, and to hear Josh Hutcherson utter that line in Mockingjay - Part 2 will give anyone who read the books - or has fallen in love with The Hunger Games' central romance - some very real goosebumps. It's a phrase that somehow embodies the very complicated relationship between Peeta and Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), who go from acquaintances to allies to a fake couple to a real one over the course of four movies. With the series coming to an end, there is also an end for Katniss and Peeta - and we don't think it's too much of a spoiler to say they have a happy one. To celebrate the couple who has really, really been through a lot together, we're looking back at the evolution of Katniss and Peeta's relationship. »

Katniss Everdeen ruled on Thanksgiving Day as “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” dominated at the nation’s multiplexes with $10.4 million, bringing the film to a first-week U.S. total of $146.7 million.
Lionsgate’s fourth and final film in the Jennifer Lawrence franchise easily topped the two new entries — Disney’s “The Good Dinosaur,” which drew $6.55 million from 3,749 locations for a two-day total of $16.4 million, and New Line-mgm’s “Creed,” which scored $6.45 million Thursday from 3,284 theaters for a two-day total of $12.4 million.
The trio of top titles are performing in line with pre-Thanksgiving estimates and should remain solid performers for the rest of the holiday weekend. “Mockingjay 2” is expected to finish the five-day period between $70 million and $75 million, while “The Good Dinosaur” will wind up with as much as $60 million and “Creed” could come in above $40 million.
Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with Rentrak, credited the studios with smart scheduling. »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, 2015.
Directed by Francis Lawrence.
As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts by the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
The saga of The Hunger Games finally comes to a close with the second half of Mockingjay an enjoyable and decent finale for the series. The Young Adult fiction sensation about a dystopian future captured the imagination of a generation and saw each film break the box office.
The final instalment starts straight after the cliffhanger conclusion of Part 1 which saw Peta (Hutcherson) brainwashed into trying to kill Katniss (Lawrence) and the destruction of the fascist capitol Panem almost certain. »

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence revealed that she's already lined up her next project, and instead of acting in front of the camera, the Oscar winner will be calling the shots from behind the lens.
"I've signed on to direct something called 'Project Delirium' — it's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong," Lawrence told EW.
According to the magazine, the flick is based on a 2012 article from The New Yorker called "Operation Delirium," which "focused on military doctors running experiments on soldiers throughout the Cold War." There's no word yet on when Lawrence is set to get to work, but according to the actress, she's had the directing bug for her entire career.

Jennifer Lawrence is set to venture behind the camera for the first time, with the Oscar winner telling Entertainment Weekly that she has signed on to make her directorial debut with Project Delirium.
“I’ve signed on to direct something called Project Delirium — it’s based on this article about mental warfare in the ’60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong,” states Lawrence. “It’s funny, I’ve wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn’t have been ready. Now I actually feel ready.”
Project Delirium is based on an article in The New Yorker entitled Operation Delirium, which looked at medical experiments carried out by military doctors on soldiers during the Cold War.

As you know, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 opened last weekend. It’s the Hobbited trilogy of the books by Suzanne Collins and stars our spirit celebrity Jennifer Lawrence, along with Liam Hemsworth (who used to be our favorite Hemsworth, but we can’t pick just one anymore), Josh Hutcherson (he’s Anya’s favorite of all), Elizabeth Banks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Rip) and lots of others, we’d be here all day.
There’s so much to say about the final installment of the Hunger Games movie franchise…except we can barely speak…The Feels! That Heffie scene! Finnick! Finnick & Annie! Prim! Pollux! The Epilogue. Watch the video as we try to get make sense of this very Tweeks Approved movie and get a few words in about the trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant.

It seemed quite appropriate that “The Hunger Games” was leading the box office on Thanksgiving morning as the aroma of turkey and the fixings began wafting from the nation’s kitchens. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” has nothing to do with pilgrims, of course. The final chapter in Lionsgate’s blockbuster young-adult sci-fi film franchise about Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) liberating her country Panem brought in roughly $13.7 million from 4,175 theaters on Wednesday. That put the reigning box-office champ on pace for more than $70 million over the five-day holiday weekend and gave it the inside track for the top spot ahead. »
