Confirming earlier rumors, Robert De Niro has now said he will be taking part in David O. Russell’s upcoming film Joy.

Following in the blazing path to box-office riches of Catching Fire, Mockingjay: Part 1 will have its world premiere in London on Nov. 10—more than a week before it opens in theaters around the globe on Nov. 21.
In 2013, Lionsgate unveiled the second chapter of the Hunger Games franchise in England’s capitol, which has no obvious link to Suzanne Collins’ books but is a glamorous, cosmopolitan city situated in a time-zone that is convenient to tuned-in fans from multiple continents. Last November, the premiere was followed by mostly positive reviews, which only boosted worldwide anticipation for the film. When it opened in America, it grossed $158.1 million in its opening weekend and went on to be the year’s biggest hit, topping Marvel’s most glamorous superhero, Iron Man. Lionsgate might be a little superstitious, but topping Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to take the crown for a second consecutive year seems well within the film’s reach.
American audiences will have to wait until Nov. 17, when Mockingjay debuts in Los Angeles.
A new teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 was released on Twitter Wednesday after fans unlocked it.
Backed by Lorde, the video, titled “Return to District 12,” opens with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) boarding an aircraft. “She won’t be able to handle it,” a female voiceover says. “The games destroyed her.”
“We need to make it personal for her,” the male voiceover responds. “Let her see what the Capitol did to District 12.” That’s exactly where she goes. Her hometown is completely decimated.
The video ends on an eerie note as Katniss discovers a white rose from President Snow. The message: The battle is far from over.
Mockingjay hits theaters Nov. 21. Until then, watch the teaser here.
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.
A full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 is finally here, and it offers a look at the war-torn land Panem has become as well as a poor, brainwashed Peeta, now acting as a mouthpiece for President Snow.
In the trailer, Haymitch explains to Katniss that Peeta is the Capitol’s weapon, just like she is the rebels’. Katniss, however, uses Peeta’s plight as an ultimatum. “You will rescue Peeta at the earliest opportunity, or you will find another Mockingjay,” Katniss tells Julianne Moore’s President Alma Coin and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Plutarch Heavensbee.
The trailer also gives fleeting glimpses at characters old and new, including Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. Effie Trinket pins a mockingjay pendant on Katniss’s armor, Gale shows off his talent with a bow and arrow, and Finnick gives Katniss a worried glance. It all ends with Katniss shooting down a plane with her arrow. We’ve always known she has great aim. READ FULL STORY
After several Mockingjay posters featuring a variety of characters (and one displaying the heroine’s back), Katniss Everdeen is finally front and center in the final poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) looks fierce—does she ever not?—posed in front of a flaming Mockingjay symbol, the wings seeming to belong to her body. She’s prepared for battle, with armor, arrows, and what looks to to be a knife in her hand.
The girl on fire is ready. Now all we need is the movie, which hits theaters Nov. 21.
Update: A trailer is also coming in five days, according to a teaser, in which Katniss stares fearfully at a white rose.
Even though Katniss is the face of the rebellion in the final installment of the Hunger Games series her back is turned in the latest poster for Mockingjay—Part 1. The marketing for the movie has been light on its heroine so far, offering just a glimpse of her in a teaser trailer—and the new poster doesn’t really change that. (Many of the other main characters got posters in which their faces were actually, you know, visible.)
The latest poster, however, does say something interesting about Katniss’s role in the last parts of the franchise. Though Katniss is definitely still our protagonist, she is also forced to act as a symbol rather than an actual human being. The poster also sort of makes her look like Batman or, rather, Batniss.
The past two years, Oscar season has played host to a Bradley Cooper-Jennifer Lawrence collaboration, but the two made another movie together, and it’s finally being shown. Serena, directed by Susanne Bier, is part of the lineup for the BFI London Film Festival, making what appears to be its world premiere, according to The Playlist. 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.
While the rest of the nation enjoyed a long, leisurely Labor Day weekend, basking in those fleeting final days of summer, life on the Internet ground to a halt because: Jennifer Lawrence naked. The Oscar-winning actress was the highest profile target of a massive hacking campaign, which the Telegraph reports accessed her Apple iCloud account, where pics from her phone were presumably backed up. (Somewhere, the producers of Sex Tape are shouting, “We tried to warn you! The public ignored us!”)
Various reports say nearly 60 photos of Lawrence in various stages of undress circulated after a hacker posted them to 4chan, the Internet’s screaming id, alongside similarly racy leaked photos of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, and allegedly many others—all of them women. Winstead confirmed in dispiriting tweets that her pics were real, but Justice and Grande have denied it. (TMZ quotes a Grande tweet, “My petite ass is much cuter than that,” though it’s not on her Twitter page anymore.)
Lawrence’s representatives also confirmed the pics’ authenticity by calling their revelation a “flagrant violation of privacy” and vowing legal action against anyone who posts the images.
Meanwhile, the presumed stockpile of penis photos taken by Hollywood actors remains curiously untouched.
Over the course of two Hunger Games films, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been unflinchingly confident. But in Mockingjay – Part 1, the teen heroine suffers a bout of age-appropriate angst as she reluctantly becomes a rebel leader.
“It’s a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence, who also directed 2013’s Catching Fire. “Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she’s even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.” READ FULL STORY
