Bradley Cooper recently reflected on this purple patch in his career in a chat with the HuffPost, saying: "I feel very fortunate. This is a wonderful time in my life. No question about it. And I just wake up every day and make sure I enjoy the hell out of it."
It's understandable. In four short years, the Philadelphia-born star of 'The Hangover 3', in cinemas this week (you can read our Review here), and its lucrative predecessors has seen his status change from that of rom-com eye-candy to acting credibility, to rank him alongside peers such as Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio. An Oscar nod this year for 'Silver Linings Playbook' only confirmed that he has come a long way from the tousle-haired student nervously asking Sean Penn a question in The Actors' Studio (see video below). Here's how he's done it...

It seems like just yesterday that Bradley Cooper was chucking his guts up in The Wedding Crashers. Then, his face was on the posters for The Hangover. Most people probably half-recognised his face, but for the most part, The Hangover featured three then-unknowns. Four years and two awful sequels later (let’s be honest, Part III is going nowhere), Bradley Cooper is one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood, not to mention a very deserving Academy-award nominee.
Having all but shook off every bad rom-com and horror film deemed necessary to kickstart his career in feature films, and with the Silver Linings buzz all but subsided, Cooper will be looking to continue his rise in 2013. After laying The Hangover franchise to rest (hopefully), he will be reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence in Susanne Bier’s depression-era drama, Serena, before reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence…again…as well as Silver Linings Playbook »

The couple won an MTV Movie Award for 'Best Kiss' after their smooch in Silver Linings Playbook - but Cooper has now admitted that his lip action may leave something to be desired.
Speaking on tonight's episode of The Graham Norton Show, Cooper explained that Lawrence had criticised his kissing style while they were shooting.
"After the second take she said, 'You're a wet kisser'," he admitted. "You don't want to hear that. It was not a compliment."
However, Cooper has previously laughed off rumours that he is dating his co-star, saying: "I could literally be her father."
The Graham Norton Show airs tonight (May 24) on BBC One at 10.35pm. »
May’s not yet over and we’ve already got another flick in the theatres with the number three in the title. Iron Man 3 kickstarted the big Summer blockbuster season weeks ago with an astounding box office draw and a general agreement that this superhero action epic was a vast improvement over the lack luster part two. Well, comedies can often stumble in their follow-ups and a third outing can be “back to basics”/apology to the first film’s staunchest fans. This happened with the Grisswold Vacation flicks as Christmas Vacation was more popular with critics and moviegoers than the tepid European Vacation. More recently Ocean’S 13 played much better than the bloated Ocean’S 12 (well, it is a comedy series with lots of action and suspense mixed in). Like the Grisswolds, Danny Ocean and his crew seemed to stumble overseas, so 13 got them back to “Sin City »

Comedy is a complex issue to discuss, but a simple one to judge. There are many types of cinematic comedies, with wildly varying levels of ambition, but for the most part, the basic barometer for success is an easy one to gauge: Does the film make one laugh? It is as subjective a critical criterion as exists, personal to the specific tastes of the individual, and when it comes to films like The Hangover and its sequels, it is essentially the only question that matters. These are not satires, intent on examining real-world issues through humor, nor do they strive to make any stylistic or aesthetic innovations. While the films live and die by the strength of the ensemble, often doing surprisingly heartfelt and effective work with the relationships of the core trio, any and all elements of character study are secondary to the humor.
So when I say that »

Summer is almost upon us, which means lots of sun, beach-going, and movie-viewing (of course). The traditional movie-going experience can have you couped up in a theater for hours, which means you'll miss the beautiful weather outside. Luckily, Moviefone is taking you out of the theater, and into the sunshine (and under the stars) with this year's Street Food Cinema. The annual outdoor movie festival gives Los Angeles-area residents (or anyone visiting L.A. this summer) the chance to watch a full and diverse line-up of films in the fresh summer air of Exposition Park. The event also features gourmet food trucks and music from emerging L.A. musicians. Tickets to the event are $10, which includes access to the food, music, and live entertainment. Check out the full schedule below, and find out more information at the official Street Food Cinema website. Schedule May 25th - Stand By Me w »

Josh Hutcherson must have seen Silver Linings Playbook and dug Jennifer Lawrence's foray into the mental health realm. The man in the middle of four films as Peeta Mellark is now set to produce and star in Ape, "a dramatic tale of a young man’s struggle with mental illness, love and a deep-rooted family secret." Repo Men helmer Miguel Sapochnik will direct. »

Jennifer Lawrence looks blue on set -- but there's nothing wrong with that. On Monday, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted the first image of the Academy Award winner donning her costume as the mutant Mystique. Lawrence is reprising the role she played in 2011's X-Men: First Class, and the striking physical transformation certainly gives her a look that's worlds apart from Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games. »

Best known as Katniss in The Hunger Games, and most recently for her work in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence is also in X-Men: Days of Future Past, this time in her full body makeup as extremely form-fitting Mystique. Director Bryan Singer gave fans yet another taste of what they can expect from the film, revealing a practically nekkid Lawrence decked out in blue body paint. The complex relationship between Lawrence’s Mystique and James McAvoy’s Professor X from First Class will reportedly continue in this follow-up. Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult also returns for the new film along with fellow First Class cast members. Patrick »

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in August: Osage County: Duel of the Oscar winners [See previous post: "Oscar 2014 Watch: Harvey Weinstein Cannes Film Festival Coming Attractions."] More Oscar 2014 bait: August: Osage County, directed by John Wells, and starring three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep (Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice, The Iron Lady) and Oscar winner Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich). Is it mere coincidence that Streep’s seventeenth Oscar nomination and third win was for her portrayal of British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady — distributed by The Weinstein Company two years ago? Either way, Streep’s Oscar 2014 competition should be fierce, as Julia Roberts doesn’t seem to be wearing any makeup in the family drama. (Photo: Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in August: Osage County.) Adapted by Tracy Letts from his own play, besides Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, August: Osage County also features Oscar nominee Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear), Dermot Mulroney, Star Trek Into Darkness‘ Benedict Cumberbatch, »

Christian debuted his new bald head at the Los Angeles International Airport on May 19 as he landed from New York. What do you think of his dramatic new ‘do?
Christian Bale, known for his long, wavy hair, went for a dramatic hair makeover that he showed off at Lax airport on May 19. He shaved his head for his role in the upcoming film American Hustle. What do you think about his bold, bald look?
Christian Bale Shaves His Head — Love It Or Loathe It?
According to IMDb, American Hustle is described as: “The 1970s-set true story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians — namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.”

There's a montage in "The Hangover Part III" -- a retrospective, if you will -- of the Wolfpack "through the years." While watching images from all three "Hangover" movies flash across the screen, it's hard not to think about Bradley Cooper's own journey since the first film debuted in 2009. In four short years, Cooper has transformed himself from wiseacre Phil Wenneck to an Academy Award-nominated actor -- a transformation so thorough, it's actually a little odd watching him play Wenneck again.
Cooper called after a long day of press events (that were held in Las Vegas, so your guess is as good as mine as to the amount of sleep he was running on). He discussed the end of the "Hangover" series, his relationship with David O. Russell, and the reasons behind his abrupt departure from the troubled Western "Jane Got a Gun." Cooper also talked about a recent meeting with Sean Penn (yes, »

Lionsgate held a Capitol City party at the Majestic Barriere hotel - complete with flaming digital billboards, chocolate waterfalls and models decked in Capitol costumes - as the studio used Cannes as a global platform to launch the sequel with its international distributors.
Catching Fire, which opens in cinemas on November 22, will see Katniss and Peeta embark on a district-wide 'Victor's Tour'. As unrest spreads through Panem, President Snow prepares to send Katniss back into the arena for the 'Quarter Quell' 75th annual Hunger Games. »

This year's Majestic Hotel party sees host of films showcased and stars including Nicole Kidman join producer on stage
Around Oscar time this year, cheeky host Seth Macfarlane noted that the race being now run, and the winners and losers more or less apparent, thousands of dejected actresses were at least spared the burden of saying they found Harvey Weinstein attractive. But on Friday night here in Cannes, the cyclical business of finding Harvey sexy – for both men and women – began again in a big way as the great man unveiled his slate of upcoming projects at his annual party at the Majestic Hotel.
At this same bash last year, things were far more subdued: a few cocktails, a few trailers and we were all back outside, milling about on the Croisette in pretty short order. This, by contrast, was a massive event, with around nine or 10 films being showcased »

Harvey Weinstein said it himself at this year's Weinstein Company Cannes showcase, "2012 was a year as good as any year we had at Miramax." The three films highlighted at last year's event (Django Unchained, Silver Linings Playbook, and The Master) went on to snag 16 Oscar nominations. This year's crop of films... well let's just say they have some work to do to live up to their older siblings. The only film that received an audible reaction from the crowd was the cut scene shown from Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives. The nearly five-minute scene featured Kristin Scott Thomas grilling her son's new girlfriend with the kind of language that would make a sailor blush. Gosling's character sat there taking it all...

Another movie based on a conspiracy behind the assassination President John F. Kennedy is going into development. The movie will be called Legacy of Secrecy, and it will be written and directed by David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook).
The movie is being set up at Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company by his dad George DiCaprio. Apparently, the movie will "blow the lid off of what really happened in Dallas in November 1963." It's looking like DiCaprio and Robert De Niro could star in the film as well. The movie is based on a book of the same name written by Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann.
The news comes from showbiz411, who says it follows "the saga of FBI informant Jack Laningham. DeNiro would play Mafia kingpin Carlos Marcello, who confided to Langingham that he ordered the hit on Kennedy. Marcello died in 1993. But back during the days following the assassination, »

Last summer at Cannes, Harvey Weinstein held a special press conference to show off forthcoming film footage from The Master, Silver Linings Playbook, and Django Unchained — three major works from A-list auteurs. The Weinstein Company slate isn't stacked in quite the same way this year, but Weinstein held another event earlier today at the Hotel Majestic, at which he ran down the company's entire slate, padding some of the first looks — including a five-minute reel for Nicole Kidman's Grace Kelly biopic — with lots of trailers that we've already seen from films like August: Osage County and The Butler. Still, you couldn't help but notice that Weinstein's upcoming slate was packed with prestige films starring black actors, including Forest Whitaker, Michael B. Jordan, and Idris Elba. Always a canny awards-season presence, could Weinstein push all three men into a history-making Best Actor category?We haven't had more than one »

Coming off a banner year thanks to "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Django Unchained" netting over $100 million each domestically and three Oscars (two for "Django" and one for "Silver"), The Weinstein Company sailed into Cannes this year eager to kick off a follow-up via their annual slate preview. While last year saw their auteur-driven heavy hitters "Django," "Silver" and "The Master" debut pre-trailer footage that set the industry abuzz, this year's big reveal landed with more of a "meh." Or, as a journalist seated next to me to said, "Well, that was underwhelming." Not to say that their slate is unimpressive this year. Among their 2013 Oscar hopefuls are the Meryl Streep-Julia Roberts headlined family drama "August: Osage Country," Lee Daniel’s ridiculously star-studded "The Butler," Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize-winning sensation "Fruitvale Station" (aka "Fruitvale"), David Lowery's somber crime love story "Ain’t Them Bodies Saints" (they are handling foreign), and the Nicole. »
