Watch Bradley Cooper in the heart-pounding trailer for 'American Sniper'

Bradley Cooper plays the most lethal sniper in U.S. history, according to the riveting U.K. trailer for American Sniper, an upcoming drama from director Clint Eastwood that’s based on the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s bestselling autobiography.

Cooper, who’d acquired the rights to the memoir early on, was deep in development when Kyle was tragically shot in early 2013. Though shaken, he decided to proceed with the film. In a Fresh Air interview, he said: “His story first of all really needs to be told, and it’s also relevant on two fronts: gun control and the need to address the many soldiers who are coming back with PTSD. Medicine has evolved to such a state — soldiers are coming back and they’re going to assimilate into the culture and if we don’t address the mental state along with the physical state it’s going to be a problem.”

Check out the sparse, tense trailer below.

Magnolia acquires Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper's 'Serena'

Magnolia Pictures has acquired Serena, the long-in-the-works Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper film, EW has confirmed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is not looking to release it in the U.S. during Oscar season, instead gearing it up for an early 2015 release.

The fate of Serena, directed by Oscar-winner Susanne Bier, has been a mystery for some time, given that the movie was filmed back in 2012 before either of Lawrence and Cooper’s other collaborations, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, were released. THR‘s new story indicates that the film’s quality may be questionable; Magnolia became a “default distributor,” the publication reported, given that no other distributors had picked up the film. Magnolia’s sister company 2929 Productions financed the film. Three different cuts of the movie were screened, and buyers told THR it was “so edited, it made no sense” and “uneven, particularly Lawrence’s [descent into madness].”

Some audiences will get to see the film about a husband and wife running a Depression-era timber empire soon, however, as the movie will be screened at the BFI London Film Festival and released in the U.K. in October. A trailer emerged last week.

Update: Magnolia will release the film on VOD in February and in theaters in March.

The film will make its festival stop before being released on Oct. 24 in the U.K. It still does not have a U.S. date.

Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller to reunite for 'Chef'

Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, who co-star in the upcoming Clint Eastwood-directed film American Sniper (above), will reunite in Chef, a restaurant movie from August: Osage County director John Wells. Not to be confused with the Jon Favreau Chef movie that is currently in theaters, Wells’ picture, based on a script by Locke director Steven Knight, tells the story of a fired Paris chef who regroups in London where he aims to open the greatest restaurant in the world.

Cooper and Miller recently finished filming Sniper, where they play the real-life married couple Chris and Taya Kyle. Chris was a decorated Navy SEAL who served in Iraq and claimed more than 250 kills in his best-selling 2012 autobiography. In 2013, he was murdered at a Texas shooting range by a U.S. Marine veteran.

Variety initially reported this news.

'Guardians of the Galaxy's UK trailer turns down the music -- VIDEO

Guardians-of-the-Galaxay.jpg

The first wave of teasers and trailers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy emphasized the comic book movie’s most eccentric qualities, a wild bunch of universe-saving criminals that include a tree, a raccoon, and a green-skinned Zoë Saldana. If you never read Guardians in print, it didn’t really matter, according to the studio; instead, it chose to play up the “these aren’t you older brother’s superheroes” angle. “Hey, we’re playing Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,'” the clips blared. “That’s how you know this movie is cool!”

Perhaps the Guardians are even less well-known in the U.K. — or perhaps those songs are — because they now have a straightforward, ironic-music-free trailer that gives the best primer yet for what this movie is actually about. Chris Pratt’s scoundrel thief gets to deliver all the rah-rah speeches, but Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is the wise-ass scene-stealer. Watch the de-stylyzed trailer below: READ FULL STORY

On the scene with Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Louis C.K., and David O. Russell at the 'American Hustle' premiere

Damn, it must feel good to be a hustler. Coming off a  New York Film Critics Circle best picture win and whispers of Oscars buzzing in the air, the stars of American Hustle celebrated the film’s world premiere Sunday night at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater.

Inspired by the 1978 Abscam scandal in which the FBI set up a sting operation to capture corrupt political officials, the dramedy started off as a kernel of an idea in the mind of screenwriter and executive producer Eric Warren Singer 15 years ago. But for him, the movie all started with one character — irresistibly charming con man Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale. READ FULL STORY
