21 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What's going on in that pretty little head of yours, Jennifer Lawrence?

With her somber yet inquisitive look, and the fact that she's on a horse, Lawrence has raised suspensions as to what the heck is about to happen. Espeically if you know the plot behind this period piece.

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 »

‘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 ...

Memento heads to Toronto with Marguerite

27 August 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Paris-based sales agent to launch new film loosely inspired by “world’s worst soprano”, Florence Foster Jenkins.

Memento Films International will launch French Xavier Giannoli’s upcoming Marguerite, starring Catherine Frot as an aspiring opera singer with a terrible voice, at the Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 4-14).

The French-language, period drama - set against the backdrop of 1920s Paris - revolves around Marguerite Dumont, a wealthy chatelaine devoted to music, who loves to sing to her guests.

None of her friends or hangers-on dare tell Marguerite she has a dreadful voice and when a journalist mischievously gives one of her private recitals a rave review she decides to give her first public concert.

Ignoring her husband’s protests, she enlists the help of a former diva and starts training for the big night.

The tale is loosely inspired by American Florence Foster Jenkins, a real opera singer known as the “diva of din” who was »

Photos: Ultron, Inside, Imitation, Woods, Serena

27 August 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Empire Magazine has released high quality version of two of the previously released photos from Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron". The first showing Whedon and actor Jeremy Renner on the set, the second a shot of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark And Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner.

Next comes new shots of the huggable robot Baymax in the Disney/Marvel animated feature "Big Hero 6," followed by a first look at Riley - the 11-year-old girl at the center of Pixar's "Inside Out". That film deals with the clashing personalities of the colorful emotions that populate her mind.

Finally there's a new shot of Meryl Streep in the film adaptation of the Sondheim musical "Into the Woods," a new shot of Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," a first look at Nicole Kidman in "Paddington," and a photo of Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell's period »

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 »

New Image Of Serena Arrives As Film Lands An October Release Date

27 August 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been two years since Serena wrapped production, and we still haven’t seen it. Not only have we not seen it, but the film has been keeping a pretty low profile, too. There haven’t been any trailers or screenings on the festival circuit, which is quite odd considering that Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are in the lead roles, with Oscar winner Susanne Bier sitting behind the camera. Now, to make the whole thing even more confusing, the movie has just earned itself a sudden October 24th release in the UK.

Based on the novel by Ron Rash, Serena is a depression-era drama that tells the story of George and Serena Pemberton, “two love-struck newly-weds who begin to build a timber empire.” Check out the full synopsis below:

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. »

New Image Of Jennifer Lawrence In 'Serena,' Film Getting Sudden U.K. Release In October

27 August 2014 5:47 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So you have a depression-era drama directed by arthouse favorite Susanne Bier (whose "In A Better World" nabbed the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2011), starring Jennifer Lawrence (megastar and Oscar winner) and Bradley Cooper (Oscar nominated twice) —what could possibly go wrong? While we haven't yet seen the film, it says something that two years have passed since "Serena" wrapped production, and not a peep has been heard of it since. There have been no festival appearances, trailers or even many pictures, which seems odd given the talent involved. But suddenly, the movie is gearing up for a U.K. release in just a couple of months. Stylist has debuted a new image from the movie, and we're certainly surprised to see this sudden flurry of movement. The movie is based on the novel by Ron Rash and tells a tale of ambition and vengeance. Here's the official synopsis: »

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. »

Tiff 2014: First Trailer for Susanne Bier's 'A Second Chance' Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

22 July 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A new film from Susanne Bier is always something to look forward to, but it's a little surprising the film chosen to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival is A Second Chance (En chance til) and not Serena as this is now Bier's second film to be released since Serena (which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper) completed filming. Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ("Game of Thrones") and Ulrich Thomsen, Second Chance asks How far are decent human beings willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjustc Written by Bier's frequent screenwriting collaborator, Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better World), this drama is about how easily we lose our grasp on justice when confronted with the unthinkable, and life as we know it hangs by a thread. Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen co-star. Check out the trailer below. sb id="963485" height »

Here's What Happens When Katniss and Hermione Vie For Your Attention

8 July 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Charlize Theron, Emma Watson, and a rather tan Jennifer Lawrence all showed up for the Christian Dior Haute Couture runway show at the Musée Rodin in Paris on Monday. The ladies sat front row with Dior CEO Sidney Toledano to take in the Fall 2014 collection and later joined the brand's creative director, Raf Simons, to pose for photos and give their congratulations; actresses Marion Cotillard and Zhang Ziyi also popped up backstage to share their excitement after watching the show. While Charlize arrived on the arm of her boyfriend, Sean Penn - and looked as stunning as ever in a sparkly minidress - we couldn't help but geek out a bit over Jennifer and Emma posing for pictures together in their color-coordinated Dior ensembles. Jennifer pulled some of her signature goofball moves when she playfully tried to cover Emma's face from the cameras; looks like Katniss and Hermione won't be »
