Oscars News: Jennifer Lawrence will not three-peat at Oscars with delay of 'Serena'

10 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Lou Lumenick breaks news that the next Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper film "Serena" will not be eligible for the 2014 Oscars after all. It was going to be a long shot anyway based on the lack of buzz for the film, but it means Lawrence is completely out of contention for the first time in three years ("Silver Linings Playbook," 2012; "American Hustle," 2013). The Depression-era movie was filmed back in 2012 and has Cooper as a North Carolina lumber tycoon and Lawrence as his unhappy wife. The film will now screen at the London Film Festival in October and have a release plan only in Europe for the short term. While Lawrence can't three-peat at the Oscars this time, Cooper still has the Clint Eastwood film "American Sniper" film opening on Christmas Day.

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, »

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," »

Suki Waterhouse Borrows One of Bradley Cooper's Hot Moto Jackets—See Her Style!

17 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The nice thing about having a stylish boyfriend is that it doubles your clothing options. Case in point: Suki Waterhouse in this moto style she obviously snagged from Bradley Cooper! We've seen the American Hustle star rocking leather looks like this as he rides off into the sunset on his super cool motorcycle...or just shuffling it around New York. Now the British supermodel is taking that James Dean 2.0 feel to a totally feminine place. It's like the preacher's daughter snuck into a Hells Angels meeting! We wonder if Bradley will appreciate his stylish better half turning his manly outerwear into a girly get-up? If this shot of the Silver Linings Playbook star all geared up is any indication, »

Magnolia acquires Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper's 'Serena'

17 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

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, »

Nobody wants to release Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper drama, 'Serena,' apparently

17 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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, »

'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 »

Yes No Maybe So: Serena

14 September 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to walk us through the recently released trailer for a film many of us had surely written off, Susanne Bier’s Serena. The 2012 film will finally see the light of day when it premiere next month at the London Film Festival. It kept making me think of other films and other issues; never a good sign. But we'll start positive. 

Yes

- This moment, mostly because it reminded me of the tenacity of Lawrence’s most accomplished roles (Katniss and Ree).

- Lawrence’s hair, makeup and costumes. 1930s country glamor? Yes, please.

- Cooper’s pecs, soon to be seen on Broadway this season in The Elephant Man.

- To sum up: Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence. Whatever qualms one may have with the one-two punch of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, one cannot deny the fact that Cooper and Lawrence have great chemistry. I’d ask »

Jennifer Lawrence Will Co-Chair 2015 Met Gala

13 September 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Lawrence got a big job for next year's Met Gala.

Known for her style, Jennifer Lawrence will not only be a fashionista at next year's Met Gala. The Oscar-winning actress will co-chair the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit.

Photos: The Hottest Styles from the 2014 Met Gala

The Met Gala is set for May 4, 2015, and the theme will be "Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion."

According to Vogue, the theme "will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood, and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call ‘Chinese whispers’). Drawing on more than a hundred couture and avant-garde samplings from designers as varied as Alexander McQueen and Laurence Xu, the cross-disciplinary exhibition will incorporate painting, decorative arts, and filmic representations of China."

One of last year's co-chairs is Lawrence's co-star in both Silver Linings Playbook and Serena, [link »

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. »

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence Reunite in Steamy First Trailer for "Serena"

12 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence made movie magic in "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" -- and now, they're teaming up again in the dark drama, "Serena."  While the film was shot back in 2012, right after "Silver Linings" and "The Hunger Games," we're finally getting our first look at the film today. Thought such a long shelf life is usually the first sign of a flop, the trailer above looks pretty impressive. Based on Ron Rash’s 2008 novel, Lawrence and Cooper play a husband and wife who have their own timber empire in Depression-era North Carolina.Their marital bliss turns sour when Lawrence’s character finds out that her husband has an illegitimate child, and she sets out to destroy him in a revenge plot that seems to be inspired by Lady Macbeth.  The film will debut at the BFI London Film Festival, before opening in the U.K. There is still no U. »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Reunited in Serena Trailer

12 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are seemingly joined at the hip, career-wise. Here they are, together again, in the trailer for Susanne Bier's next project, Serena.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper play Serena and George Pemberton, wood tycoons in the mountains of North Carolina in the Roaring 20s. They're doing great, until Serena uncovers a secret that threatens everything they have built together.

Except their chance at an Oscar... It is the third collaboration for Lawrence and Cooper, after Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, which were both in the race for several little golden men.

While Serena will be out in the UK on October 24, we still do not have a release date in North America.  »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Get Passionate in New 'Serena' Trailer

12 September 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's no secret that Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper have incredible onscreen chemistry, and from the looks of this trailer, their new film, Serena, will be no different. The Silver Linings Playbook duo depict newlyweds George and Serena Pemperton in the film, which is based on a Ron Rash novel about a couple attempting to create a timber empire in 1930s North Carolina. Lawrence captivates as a woman who doesn't necessarily fit the 1930s female stereotype, as she speaks her mind and swings an ax at a tree. The movie, directed by Susanne Bier, was filmed back in spring 2012 and

Serena Finally Gets A Trailer

12 September 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once again, we find ourselves in that strange spot of anticipation. When a film takes two years from the end of principal photography to cinema release, does that indicate trouble? If it has taken so long to ‘tinker’ with it in post-production, is it going to be a mess? All these questions will soon be answered, as Serena has finally got a trailer.

Written by Christopher Kyle (Alexander, K-19: The Widowmaker) and adapted from the 2008 book of the same name by Ron Rash, this period drama is directed by Susanne Bier, who previously delivered Things We Lost In The Fire. Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as newlyweds Serena and George Pemberton in 1929, the film sees the couple travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina to build an all-conquering timber empire. Though Serena is ambitious, driven and talented, her position is threatened by the discovery that she is »

The Trailer For Serena Reunites Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

12 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The trailer for the long-shelved period drama Serena is finally here. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper were cast in the adaptation months before they appeared together in Silver Linings Playbook, and there's been quite a bit of speculation about why the movie hasn't yet been released. We got pictures of Lawrence and Cooper as Depression-era lumber moguls a while back, but the trailer has brought their characters into motion. Serena (Lawrence) is Pemberton's (Cooper) new wife, intent on making his already successful empire even more expansive. Her love for him goes so deep that the story takes a dangerous turn when she finds out he has fathered a child before their marriage. Having read the book, I'm curious to see how they adapt this (somewhat underwhelming) story to the big screen. There is no Us release date yet, so we'll just have to watch this trailer over and over again, »

First trailer and new posters for Serena starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

12 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After a long delay (the film was made in 2012), next month we will finally get to see Serena, the new drama that re-teams Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper after their work together on American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook. The first trailer and posters have debuted today, and we have them for you right here….

Directed by Suzanne Bier (who won an Academy Award for In a Better World), and based on a novel by Ron Rash, Serena tells the story of a North Carolina timber magnate (Cooper) during the Depression. He falls for Serena (Lawrence), a bold, bright woman who – judging by the footage – shocks the locals who expect most wives to be subservient. But dark secrets fill the undercurrent of the local town: illegitimate children, murder, failing empires and coldblooded ambition peek their ugly head into proceedings.
