Based on a novel by Ron Rash, Susanne Bier’s Serena stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in their third collaboration (and second as lovers). Set in Depression-era North Carolina, George and Serena Pemberton are newlyweds and business partners intent on building a timber empire. Serena’s no-nonsense approach keeps the men around her in line, but when George’s hidden past comes to light, things take a turn for the dramatic. Surprisingly, Serena doesn’t have a U.S. release date at this time. U.K. moviegoers can see it on November 27 (or at the London Film Festival if they’re anxious for some J-Law). So what’s the deal with making American audiences wait? Our pal Sean O’Connell had that...

The first trailer has arrived online for long-awaited period drama, Serena, in which Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star as a pair of newlyweds building a timber empire in 1920s North Carolina. The new film charts the couple’s whirlwind romance and marriage, before following them on their attempts to find their fortune through the booming timber industry. However, things aren’t all that straightforward, as the government starts muscling in on their newly-acquired land, and Lawrence discovers that Cooper has been hiding an...

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.
- 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 »

Based on the novel by Ron Rash, the period film follows newlyweds George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they maintain a close watch over a burgeoning logging empire in Depression-era North Carolina, ruthlessly ruling the woodlands while fighting off the efforts of environmental activists to turn their land into a national park.
Bier’s latest film, A Second Chance, had its world premiere Tuesday night at the Toronto International Film Festival. Bier won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for In A Better World (2010) and was also nominated for After The Wedding (2006).
Serena is scheduled for a UK release on October 24. Count on a U.S. release date to be announced soon so it doesn’t miss a bid for awards consideration at year’s end.

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.

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."
In the North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s, George and Serena Pemberton begin to build a timber empire.
In the 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. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton’s passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.
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.

Then, media started asking questions about it. Now it has a firm festival screening date, and finally, a trailer. Yahoo Movies brings us this exclusive look at the movie that has been years in the making . though the cause for the delay is up for debate.

As was reported earlier, Serena is a period drama about a man (Cooper) and a woman (Lawrence) who move from New England to North Carolina to take over a lumber organization. The sight of falling trees and Jennifer Lawrence burying an ax in an oak as she chides lazy workers hints at the turmoil still to come. Then, the »

Susanne Bier‘s “Serena” starring frequent co-stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence has finally released its first trailer. The film marks the Ocsar-nominated duo's third film together, though they shot it between “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.” See photo: Jennifer Lawrence Blazes Up on ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Poster The 1920s set drama follows newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton, ambitious lumber tycoons who show up in North Carolina to grow their business and start a family. Serena proves herself the equal of the male-dominated world, and becomes even more dangerous when she realizes her new husband had already fathered another woman's child. »

Susanne Bier directed the pic, which is set in depression-era North Carolina and follows a couple’s life as they try to manage their timber empire.
The pic doesn’t have a release date yet, but will bow at the London Film Festival next month.

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

What else can you really say about Susanne Bier's "Serena?" We're still waiting. "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" have come and gone (the latter having begun and ended production with "Serena" wrapped) and still the Depression Era drama has yet to come out and play. The cards will be on the table next month, though, as the film premieres at the London Film Festival ahead of an Oct. 24 UK bow. Will it be worth the wait? With the film still lacking a Us release date, you can only imagine something is up. Maybe there has been a big push in the editing to get it to a certain place. Or maybe it just doesn't work. I can't imagine it's outright incompetent. Bier is an Oscar-winning filmmaker, and a good one. Her latest, "A Second Chance," played the Toronto Film Festival this week. We finally get a good look »

They have enjoyed massive success with the first two movies that they appeared in together, and now following on from their work on American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in period piece Serena. The first trailer has been released for the 1920s set drama, courtesy of the folks at Yahoo! Movies.

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 »

We have been waiting forever for Susanne Bier's Serena, a film that reunites Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, but also one that has been sitting on the shelves for one hell of a long time only to suddenly pop up on the UK release calendar without a domestic release in sight. Now we have a trailer and poster for the movie that will be hitting UK theaters on October 24. Based on Ron Rash's novel of the same name, the film 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. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man's life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. »

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, »
