Tiff 2014: Top Ten Most Anticipated Movies at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival

15 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The line-up at this year's Toronto Film Festival has a much different feel than year's past and coming up with a list of most anticipated films isn't nearly as easy as previous years. Not because there's any lack of possible greatness, but in fact perhaps because the possibility is even greater, though in corners we may not expect. This year's fest is without what I would call a "big" film. David Dobkin's The Judge is opening the festival but at 141 minutes and with a trailer that does very little to convince me of its quality I have a hard time expecting much from it. Reese Witherspoon's Wild from director Jean-Marc Vallee is certainly one I will be seeing, but the anticipation level isn't entirely there and the somewhat muted Telluride response of respect with caveats has lessened my anticipation ever so slightly, the same could be said for Jon Stewart's Rosewater, »

'Serena' Photo Features Jennifer Lawrence on Horseback

28 August 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jennifer Lawrence has climbed upon a mighty white steed in the latest photo from Serena. The drama reunites her for the third time on screen with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper. The period drama comes from In a Better World director Susanne Bier, and follows a young married couple from Boston to the very cold North Carolina, where the Pemberton's quickly build a logging empire. As the title character Serena Pemberton, Jennifer Lawrence employes some of the gritty backwoods mannerisms that made her famous in Winter's Bone. Here, she is any man's equal, fighting rattlesnakes and even saving one man's life in the wilderness. Take a look as she prepares for her hard journey, one that may not end well for all involved.

Serena follows newlyweds George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they »

See 1920′s Jennifer Lawrence in new image from Serena

28 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new image from Susanne Bier’s Depression-era drama Serena has been released, featuring Jennifer Lawrence on horseback as the title character, Serena Pemberton.

Lawrence co-leads the film along with her American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. The film hits UK cinemas on October 24, but still lacks a release date in the United States. The film went through an extensive 18-month editing process, and has failed to pick up a Us distributor. That means that despite a great cast and meaty dramatic material, Serena likely won’t have a chance to pick up any Academy Award nominations this fall, and may someday quietly get a direct-to-home video release in the States.

Directed by Susanne Bier (director of the 2010 Oscar winner Best Foreign Film, In A Better World), Serena stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Sam Reid (The Railway Man), Toby Jones »

The 85th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

28 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today I’ll be going back once again and looking at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. I mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be doing that here and there, there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Argo The nominees here for this ceremony were Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty. »

‘Serena’ Image with Jennifer Lawrence; Still Without a U.S. Release Date

28 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The period drama Serena is an oddity – in the sense that we’ve heard so little about it, thus far. The flick stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper - their third movie together along with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle – and was directed by filmmaker Susanne Bier, whose previous work includes the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winning film In a Better World. Post-production on Serena may’ve taken longer than expected, but the movie is seemingly all finished by now – so why doesn’t it have a U.S. release date yet?

Serena is now slated to hit U.K. theaters on October 24th this year, but as of right now the project isn’t slated for a ...

New Image of Jennifer Lawrence in Serena; Film Gets October 24th UK Release Date, But Remains in Limbo Stateside

27 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Given the popularity of both Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper—especially after the one-two punch of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle—it’s somewhat baffling that director Susanne Bier’s (In a Better World) drama Serena has sat on the shelf for this long.  The movie was shot back in 2012, and since it was completed Bier has found the time to shoot and finish another movie, with Serena still remaining unreleased.  That changes today, though, as StudioCanal has announced that it will be releasing the film internationally this fall, with a UK bow set for October 24th.  Lawrence and Cooper star as a 1920s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry. Infidelity and infertility leads Serena (Lawrence) to plot the murder of George’s (Cooper) illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government. It’s »

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence Are Together Again!

27 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are at it again! The two, who costarred in 2012's Silver Linings Playbook and last year's American Hustle, are taking on a Depression-era adaptation called Serena. Despite the fact that the film was actually shot before American Hustle, there is still no Us release date for the period story of a lumberman's wife (Lawrence) who descends into vengeful insanity. At least we have these pictures to moon over for a while! Take a look. Source: 2929 Entertainment »

New Picture of Jennifer Lawrence in 'Serena', Which is Hitting UK Theaters in October

27 August 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Out of nowhere we have a new picture of Jennifer Lawrence in Susanne Bier's Serena along with news the film, in which Lawrence shares the screen with her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper, will be hitting UK theaters October 24. Stylist has the news and the picture of Lawrence in the adaptation of Ron Rash's novel, which follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. At this point it's hard to look forward to the new film considering Bier has already released Love Is All You Need and has A Second Chance playing the Toronto Film Festival, both films were shot after Serena completed principal photography. When a film is shelved this long only to suddenly find a release date and is still without a U.S. distributor it's never really a good sign. »

Jennifer Lawrence rumoured to be in talks for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

22 August 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that Quentin Tarantino has decided to move full steam ahead with The Hateful Eight – even going so far as to release a teaser trailer, which you can watch here – it’s being reported by Collider that the director is looking to add some Oscar-winning talent to the cast, with Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, The Hunger Games) said to be in negotiations to join the Western.

Assuming Tarantino’s rewrites of the script haven’t added any major characters, then Lawrence will presumably be wanted for either Daisy Domergue or Six Horse Judy, who were portrayed by Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell during the live-script read of the screenplay a few months back.

As yet, we’ve heard nothing about the official cast for The Hateful Eight, although Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, James Remar, James Parks and Denis Menochet were »

Jennifer Lawrence could potentially join Quentin Tarantino’s next film

21 August 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While news of of a Quentin Tarantino film going into development is always met with a level of excitement, fans of the filmmaker have gone on a bit of a rollercoaster with his newest project. Titled The Hateful Eight, Tarantino initially scrapped the film following the leak of his script to the public, before staging a live-reading of the script for charity. This was followed by the announcement that Tarantino was back in production on the feature. Now a new piece of news has emerged, as Collider reports that Tarantino is in talks with actress Jennifer Lawrence to take on a role in the film.

Lawrence herself has seen her star rise in recent years, garnering acclaim for her role in 2010′s Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone before going on to the role of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise and Mystique in the X-Men franchise, as well as »

Warner Bros. is prepping a Mack Bolan action franchise around Bradley Cooper

19 August 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Warner Brothers has made a preemptive seven-figure deal to acquire the rights to Don Pendleton’s The Executioner novel series, in order to develop a franchise around the character Mack Bolan for Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook) to play.

Mack Bolan has been the subject of over 600 novels, beginning in 1969. Pendleton himself only wrote thrity-seven novels featuring the anti-terrorist operative, before selling the rights in 1980 to Gold Eagle, who commissioned ghost writers to continue the series.

Described as “a principled warrior fighting larger-than-life adversaries in the spirit of a tougher American version of James Bond,” Bolan became an expert sniper and earned the nickname The Executioner while in Vietnam as a Green Beret (a detail left out of the contemporary novels, in order to maintain continuity and to keep Bolan from getting too old).

The first film is being written by Avatar 4 scribe Shane Salerno, »

Off the Carpet: Eastwood crashes the season as Telluride gears up for another edition

18 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been an interesting run of films for director Clint Eastwood in the 10 years since his "Million Dollar Baby" crashed the 2004 Oscar party and ran away with the gold. I say "interesting" because, at least in awards season terms, it's been a run particularly notable for lots of revving but nothing that ever materialized as a significant player. Right after "Baby" it was the one-two punch of "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" in 2006, a bold play for the then-75-year-old filmmaker. While developing an adaptation of John Bradley's book for the former, Eastwood felt a perspective from the Japanese side of the WWII equation was warranted, so he quickly developed the latter. And it was "Letters" that felt like it had more on its mind, yielding surprise (for some) nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, as well an Oscar for Best Sound Editing. »

"Haunt" Won't Linger, But It Might Spook You

15 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Buying a house after three kids and their father all met gruesome ends while living there is apparently nothing to be squeamish about for the Ashers, the family at the center of the horror film Haunt. Rather, they jump at the chance to purchase the supposedly cursed Morello home after former pediatrician Dr. Morello (the divinely weird Jacki Weaver, best known as the matriarch of Silver Linings Playbook) decides that losing her entire family in a variety of tragic and disturbing ways is enough of a reason to get out. Like the Morellos, the Ashers also have three children. And like the Morellos, they too will soon discover that the big, beautiful old house has a dark, ugly spirit inhabiting it.

Jennifer Lawrence Spotted For First Time Since Nicholas Hoult Split, Oscar Winner Flashes Toned Tummy in White Crop Top

8 August 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jennifer Lawrence has officially been snapped as a single lady. Just one week after E! News exclusively reported that the Oscar winner and Nicholas Hoult had split, the 23-year-old beauty was photographed arriving at an airport in NYC. The Silver Linings Playbook star wore a wide-brimmed hat and large dark shades in order to shield her face from the prying paps. She flashed her toned tummy in a white crochet top teamed with a black bra, boyfriend jeans and trendy flats. Lawrence arrived solo at the airport, and when asked by shutterbugs about the recent break-up, she remained silent and simply continued on her way. Last week, E! News revealed that the famous couple had called it quits, with a »
