Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle

SAG audience responds warmly to first guild showing of David O. Russell film, while Amy Adams dishes on showing skin and kissing J-Law

“American Hustle,” the David O. Russell film that has been considered a possible last-minute spoiler in this year’s awards race, was unveiled to Oscar watchers on Sunday in Santa Barbara and in Culver City on the Sony lot, and the initial verdict was … all over the place.

Early reactions on social media talked of a standing ovation for Russell at the Santa Barbara Film Society screening on Sunday afternoon, and of scattered boos at a SAG Nominating Committee screening on the Sony lot that night. I wasn’t in Santa Barbara so I can’t vouch for the ovation, but I was at Sony and certainly didn’t hear any boos.

Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper

CAA will start screening Susanne Bier’s Depression-era drama “Serena,” which was shot in early 2012, late this month — with the Weinstein Co. and Fox Searchlight already interested in the project.

Move over, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Another film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper is headed to the big screen, and this one is shrouded in secrecy. Sources say CAA will begin quietly screening the Lawrence-Cooper pairing Serena for distributors in late November.

The Depression-era drama, directed by Danish helmer Susanne Bier, has been so long in the making (Lawrence and Cooper shot it in March 2012, right after Silver Linings and just as The Hunger Games was hitting theaters) that many have forgotten it exists. But project insiders say the film, which Bier has just finished editing, is generating frenzied interest from outlets including Fox Searchlight and The Weinstein Co. thanks to another powerful performance by Oscar winner Lawrence.

Still, it took Bier more than 18 months to finish the film, often a sign that a production is troubled.

“Actually, it was just the opposite,” says one insider. “There were no reshoots or anything like that. It was just a real precision edit because the story is about a woman’s descent into madness. And Susanne is a total perfectionist.” Like Lawrence, Bier is a recent Oscar winner (best foreign-language film in 2011 for In a Better World). But she was not the first director to stake a claim to Serena, based on Ron Rash’s 2008 novel about a North Carolina timber baron and his ambitious wife.

Darren Aronofsky originally was attached to direct with Angelina Jolie starring. But Aronofsky and Jolie fell out, Bier boarded and cast then-rising stars Cooper and Lawrence as the ill-fated newlyweds. Todd Wagner, who financed the film through his and Mark Cuban’s 2929 Productions, allowed Bier all the time she needed.

After Silver Linings, “We didn’t want to be the OK version of the Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper coupling,” says the insider. If the film sells, it could hit the 2014 festival circuit (Cannes and Venice have reached out) ahead of next year’s awards race.


November 25th, 2013 · The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Jennifer as Katniss Everdeen

Ravenous moviegoers propelled Lionsgate’s sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to a $307.7 million global opening, easily outpacing the first film’s $211.8 million debut in March 2012.

In North America, Catching Fire scored the top November opening of all time with $161.1 million, slaying the record set by fellow YA film adaptation The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($142.8) and marking the fourth-biggest opening of all time after The Avengers ($207.4 million), Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) and the final Harry Potter film ($169.2 million). Catching Fire enjoys the distinction of toppling The Dark Knight Rises ($160.9 million).

Catching Fire is already a much bigger player overseas than the first film, launching to $146.6 million from 65 markets. (The tally includes grosses from Brazil, where the film opened last weekend.) It’s doing double the business of Hunger Games overall, and even more in key markets, such as Russia, where it was up 64 percent.

Producer Nina Jacobson said Lionsgate has been much more aggressive internationally in marketing the film, culminating with a whirlwind premiere tour last week. “They really shifted the orientation to a global orientation. I’m incredibly thrilled with the domestic numbers, but I think we are all really excited to see the international plan paying off,” she said.

Hunger Games topped out at $408 million domestically and $283.2 million internationally for a global total of $691.2 million; Catching Fire is expected to do substantially more, particularly offshore.

The sequel, earning an A CinemaScore, is reaching a broader audience than Hunger Games did, with males making up 12 percent more of the domestic audience, or 41 percent. Catching Fire also played evenly in terms of age, with 50 percent under the age of 25 and 50 percent over.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, the sequel returns Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the lead roles. Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone also star.

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence recently told SciFiNow how she was told to lose weight when she signed onto play Katniss Everdeen. And as if we couldn’t love the down-to-earth starlet any more, she explained how she took a metaphorical bow and arrow to their suggestion and shot it straight down.

“In the first movie, when it was obviously being talked about, like, ‘It’s the Hunger Games, you have to lose 10lb,’ I was like, ‘We have control over this image, we have control over this role model. Why would we make her something unobtainable and thin?’” Lawrence said.

“This is a person that young girls – well, all women, but mainly young girls – will be looking up to and are going to want to look like her, and we have control over it, so why not make her strong? Why not make her beautiful and healthy and fit?

“I was very adamant about that, because I think that our industry doesn’t take enough responsibility for what it does to our society, about having these unrealistic expectations, and I don’t want to be part of that. I remember what it felt like to be 14 years old and looking at a Victoria’s Secret model, and thinking, ‘I’ll never look like that.’ I don’t want to make someone feel like that.”

The 23-year-old has been known to lash out at the US TV show, The Fashion Police, where presenter Joan Rivers critiques celebrity outfits and body shapes. “The thing that upsets me the most is when anybody says anything to one of the people from a show like that, they say, ‘Well, welcome to the real world!’” Lawrence continues.

“The world’s not really going to change if we just keep saying stuff like that. What if, in the ‘50s, someone had said, ‘Why should black people use a separate bathroom?’ and you said, ‘Welcome to the real world!’ Nothing really changes as long as someone has that mentality, until someone has the mentality of, ‘We aren’t going to call anybody ‘fat’ on TV because I think it’s incredibly dangerous.’ I think that everybody is responsible for the effect that they have. And it fires me up!”

Consider the world officially put to rights.

November 21st, 2013 · Articles

Jennifer Lawrence has had a pretty incredible twelve months. Let’s take a few minutes to recap quickly. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress. Weirdos started sleeping on her lawn. She finished near the top of a ton of those most beautiful women lists. She filmed American Hustle which could potentially net her another Oscar nomination, and she’s just days away from releasing Hunger Games: Catching Fire. That collective madness would be enough to overwhelm most people, but to Lawrence, it’s all positively normal compared to the world’s response to her recent haircut.

That’s right. During an interview, the actress talked about her wild rise to fame, and she cited the strangest part as the Internet’s crazy, over-the-top reaction to her chopping off her once flowing locks. Here’s the exact quote, as per USA Today…

“Can you ever imagine? If anyone wants to know the weirdest thing, it’s getting your hair cut and seeing it on the news. Terrorists probably knew about my haircut. I can blow-dry my hair in two minutes. It’s awesome.”

It’s actually amusing how much truth there is to that statement. Hollywood is like a culture breathing dragon, and as an it girl, what she does is quickly beamed to the rest of the world. Terrorists might be a bit of a stretch, but I’m sure in the middle of bum fuck South America, there were people arguing about whether or not she looks better with short hair. That’s a weird idea to think about from the outside looking in. God only knows how bizarre it must be from the inside out.

In a way, the above quote is a good snapshot analysis for why the world has fallen so hard for this girl. Her thoughts, especially on fame, always seem so incredibly sensible. In truth, many of us would probably be raging monsters if we were suddenly rich and blessed with over-the-moon popularity, but deep down, we would like to believe that we’d continue to laugh at ourselves, make funny little comments about the absurdity of it all and most especially, give interviews like this.

In case you’re the only breathing human being in the Americas who hasn’t gotten a chance to check out J-Law’s shortened hair, I’ve gone ahead and embedded a huge image below, courtesy of her Facebook page. The jury is still out as to whether or not she will elect to keep it that close to her head over the long haul, but regardless of what she decides to do, the more important thing for her is that she keeps that beautiful smile and charming personality.
