30 November 2015 8:04 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"This has a chance to change all of our lives..." 20th Century Fox has debuted a few new TV spots this last month for the upcoming release of David O. Russell's new film Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangeno, the young single mother who invents the Miracle Mop.

The film started showing to critics this past weekend and seems to be getting some good buzz. Now they're reading to roll it out to the public coming up this Christmas. Still interested?

Jennifer Lawrence turns her life around in latest trailers for Joy

30 November 2015 7:58 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Something has to change for Joy.

The new teaser trailers for David O. Russell’s latest film gives us further insight into the state of Joy’s (Jennifer Lawrence) life—that she’s in debt, living with her parents and her ex-husband, and hates her job. If anyone can turn this around, it’d be a character portrayed by Lawrence, who is the fiercest young actress in the business.

The film details the true story of Joy, the woman who created the miracle mop, and the truly miraculous way that she turned her life around. Lawrence is reunited with Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, making Joy highly likely to not just be a stellar film, but another winner for O. Russell.

The marketing team behind Joy surely knows how to get us excited—the trailers alone have been chill-inducing, promising a powerful story of redemption »

Joy Dreams Big In New Clip For David O. Russell’s Drama, Jennifer Lawrence Wants To Keep Working With Director

30 November 2015 7:24 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Juggling three children, a dead-end job and what is possibly one of the least desirable living situations imaginable – divorced parents, a poorly grandmother and an old flame all under the one roof – it’s little wonder that Jennifer Lawrence’s Joy calls time for a change. Headlining David O. Russell’s Oscar-tipped drama as the ambitious Miss. Mangano, Lawrence is poised to embark on a true rags-to-riches tale late this year, as the film charts Mangano’s prodigious rise into one of the most successful self-starting entrepreneurs in modern history.

Bundling together all of the Oscar tropes one would expect, it’s little wonder why both O. Russell and Lawrence continue to crop up in conversation as we inch ever closer to awards season. It isn’t the first time that the duo have flirted with cinema’s greatest accolades either, with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle both finding success in recent years. »

29 November 2015 12:48 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The last few year-end big-movie guns are finally screening. "The Revenant" (Fox/New Regency) has pushed Leonardo DiCaprio to the front of the Best Actor race, while Thanksgiving critical and box-office hit "Creed" (Warner Bros./MGM) provides a major comeback scenario for the creator of Rocky Balboa, Sly Stallone, as a supporting actor contender.

David O. Russell's highly anticipated Christmas release "Joy" with Jennifer Lawrence headlining as a woman who rises from humble beginnings to head her own business empire got its first screening on Saturday. Lawrence -- who won an Oscar for her first collaboration with Russell ("Silver Linings Playbook," 2012) and a nomination for their second ("American Hustle," 2013) -- is a slam-dunk to reap another bid.

Along for the ride are Robert De Niro as her less-than-understanding father, Edgar Ramirez as her supportive ex-husband and Bradley Cooper as a home shopping channel exec who believes in her dream. -Break- And what of the writer/director? While Russell directed Lawrence as well as "The Fighter" (2011) supporting players Christian Bale and Meilissa Leo to Oscars, he has ...' »

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.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Directing a Comedy

25 November 2015 9:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now that “The Hunger Games” franchise has come to an end, Jennifer Lawrence has set her sights on her next big project.

The Oscar winner wants to step behind the camera, opening the next chapter in her career.

“I’d also like to direct a comedy,” she told Entertainment Weekly, who named her their Entertainer of the Year. “I have wanted to direct as long as I’ve wanted to act. I just don’t talk about it because I’d rather just do it.”

Lawrence, 25, said she’ll be helming “Project Delirium” — an adaption of an article.

“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. It’s funny, I’ve wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I »

Biopics are Topic du Jour, Acting Frontrunners Play Real-Life Figures

23 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

This year’s Oscar hopefuls boasts the largest roster of biopics in recent memory. From more traditional, straight-forward affairs such as Straight Outta Compton and Black Mass, to films that focus on one particular real-life event such as The Big Short and Spotlight, to less typical takes focused on separate periods in the subjects’ lives such as Steve Jobs and Love & Mercy, this year’s films cover the entire spectrum of the biopic genre.

As a result, many of the frontrunners in the four major acting categories are for performances portraying real-life people. Looking back on the Academy’s history, it is hard to find a year in which an acting award did not go to a performer portraying a real person. Eddie Redmayne, Matthew McConaughey, and Daniel Day-Lewis (the last three best actor winners) all starred in biographical films.

This year the trend looks to continue, »

A Look Back at Jennifer Lawrence’s Bizarre Pre-‘Hunger Games’ Career

18 November 2015 1:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence’s career can be divided into two distinct parts: before and after Katniss Everdeen.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” opens on Friday, concluding the series that has guaranteed her global attention, in which the digital world has recorded each sentence, movement and rumor (95% of them not true).

Her work before the first film in 2012 was also pretty interesting, though less scrupulously documented.

She grew up in Louisville, went to New York during spring break at age 14, and persuaded her parents to allow a summer there to explore acting. On July 17, 2007, Variety‘s Brian Lowry reviewed a new Bill Engvall sitcom, “The Bill Engvall Show,” which was hoping to tap into his “blue collar comedy” audience. The standup comic played a family counselor who couldn’t control own family, including a teen daughter (Lawrence). Lowry wrote that the show was a “decidedly slim and rarely funny,” and there »

Emma Stone Will Star in Film Adaptation of Love May Fail, About Finding Human Decency

17 November 2015 9:52 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Emma Stone will star in Columbia TriStar's film adaptation of Love May Fail, according to Deadline and Variety. The novel is one of the more recent releases of Silver Linings Playbook author, Matthew Quick. As the book does, the film will revolve around an under-appreciated housewife (Stone) who escapes her cheating husband, returns to her childhood home in South Jersey, re-seeks human decency, and attempts to save herself, as well as the legacy of a former, scandal-plagued teacher of hers. If that dynamic kind of gives you flashbacks to Irrational Man, fear not — elevators should play a much lesser role in this project, which has been scripted by Mike White and is now in need of a director. »

'Love May Fail' For Emma Stone

17 November 2015 2:32 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ever since the box office and critical success of David O. Russell's adaptation of Matthew Quick's "Silver Linings Playbook," Hollywood has been eager to bring more of the author's work to the big screen. Channing Tatum wants to make his directorial debut with "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock," Brie Larson signed on for "The Good Luck Of Right Now" (though there hasn't been much word on that project in a while), at one point, Sam Raimi lined up "Love May Fail." Well, Raimi is no longer involved with the latter, but the project has just landed a big name. Emma Stone will star in the movie, which has a screenplay by Mike White (who penned the adaptation of "The Good Luck Of Right Now," so clearly he clicks with Quick's material). The story focuses on a recently divorced woman who returns to her hometown to clear the name of her English teacher. »
