If you've been counting the days until Jennifer Lawrence starred in a Quentin Tarantino movie, your wait just might be coming to an end. If not, then perhaps we can convince you as to why you should be!
There was a time when Sandra Bullock has been a part of a lot of really crappy movies over the years and some pretty big box office under-performers, but in 2009 everything completely changed for her. While All About Steve was another one of the aforementioned duds, she also found huge success in both the romantic comedy The Proposal and the sports drama The Blind Side - her performance in the latter earning her an Academy Award.
The movie comes out this November. You, however, can start seeing this trailer this weekend. Owners of select Galaxy devices will have the opportunity to download the all-new Hunger Games Movie Pack App, via Google Play for access to exclusive content from The Hunger Games franchise.
Lionsgate carved out a little corner of the Convention Center floor for a sizeable Hunger Games exhibit, handing out posters to excited fans and allowing crowd members to post with Peacekeepers. Traitors!
The movie tells the story of Joy Mangano, the entrepreneur who currently serves as president of Ingenious Designs and previously invented the Miracle Mop, an invention that changed the household items industry.
Go ahead and close your eyes for a moment -- wait, read this first -- and imagine Jennifer Lawrence perched atop a bicycle seat, covered in blue. This is the mental picture Lawrence paints for us during her interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The good news, according to Kinberg, is that the X-Men team was able to greatly reduce the amount of time needed to turn Jennifer Lawrence into Mystique this time around. “We got Jen's makeup [application] down from I think seven or eight hours on X-Men: First Class to about three or four on this film, which is pretty awful but at least it's not torture.”
If Fox wants to extend the brand for years (as is the plan), they are going to have to continue to develop the versions of the X-Men characters introduced in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class.
The movie is based on the 2008 book by Ron Rash and stars the leading actors as George and Serena Pemberton, ambitious newlyweds who move to North Carolina in 1929 in hopes of finding success. Together they open a timber business, and will do anything to make it grow. Things start to get horrible when Serena discovers that she is unable to have children of her own, and winds up taking it out on her husband's illegitimate son.
What people don’t realize is that, in addition to the grind of major film productions, there’s also the incredibly aggravating press commitments, being dragged across the country, talking to journalists with the exact same questions at ungodly hours of the day. Lawrence, of course, is a bubbly, loquacious personality, which makes her one of the most in-demand interviews in the industry.
David O. Russell, whose American Hustle could soon take over the Oscars, is in early talks to direct and rewrite a project for Fox 2000 based on the inspiring story of Joy Mangano, the New Yorker who went from struggling single mother to an inventive Home Shopping Network mainstay. And no surprises here, he wants Jennifer Lawrence to play Mangano, which would potentially set this as their third film together in three years.
If you are as smitten with series lead Jennifer Lawrence as the rest of the world seems to be, you’ll be happy to learn that the second film in the franchise, Catching Fire, will be headed into homes soon. Lionsgate Home Entertainment is bringing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire onto Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and Digital on March 7.
Until these major festivals, Team Hunger Games is trying to keep a lid on what has been filmed already. Director Francis Lawrence, who joined the series with Catching Fire, confirmed that they’ve had fun exploring the yet-to-be-seen District 13.
Harvey Weinstein revealed a pretty shocking twist of fate: Hathaway was once set to play Tiffany in David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook. That's right, the role that won Lawrence her Academy Award for Best Actress once belonged to the performer who took Best Supporting Actress.
Russell was making a joke. A bad one, when you consider – especially – that he’s running the current Oscar marathon alongside a harrowing depiction of actual slavery in Steve McQueen’s masterful 12 Years a Slave.
