Yahoo released this article and the news that Jennifer’s film Serena is finally getting released! It will be released in the United Kingdom on October 24th. Still waiting word on the US release date.

Between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper made another movie together: The Depression-era drama Serena. Never heard of it? That’s because Serena, which was shot two years ago, still doesn’t have a trailer, a film-festival slot, or a U.S. distributor. All that exists is a just-announced U.K. release date of Oct. 24, and a couple of photos, including the above shot of Lawrence on a horse, published today by Stylist. The picture captures the rustic regality of the film, which follows husband-and-wife team of George and Serena Pemberton (Cooper and Lawrence) as they build a timber empire in North Carolina. Their ruthless ambition eventually turns to madness, as Serena decides to protect her fortune by any means necessary.

How is it possible for a movie featuring one of Hollywood’s most popular star pairings to stay out of theaters for so long? Serena has all the right ingredients: It’s based on a bestselling 2008 novel, directed by accomplished Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (winner of the 2011 Best Foreign Language film Oscar for In a Better World), and features Lawrence in the kind of role that seems made-to-order for awards season (the Academy has a known fondness for women in period costumes losing their minds). The movie was big news when it was announced amid early Hunger Games buzz, and since then, Lawrence and Cooper have appeared in two hit films together, receiving Oscar nominations for both. Still, there’s still no word on when Serena might arrive in the U.S.

One possible reason for the hold-up is that director Bier took 18 months to complete the film. Such an extended production process is usually a sign that a film is in bad shape, though a Hollywood Reporter source claimed that the director is simply “a total perfectionist” and felt intense pressure from Silver Linings Playbook’s success. “We didn’t want to be the OK version of the Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper coupling,” the same source told THR last November. At that time, buzz was mounting for American Hustle, and THR reported that Serena was being “quietly shopped to buyers.”

And yet, there’s been no subsequent news about the movie, other than the release of a few promotional stills in March, and an announcement earlier this month that the visual effects work had been completed. Prior to today’s U.K. release announcement, the film was so off-the-radar that a July 31 tweet about European release dates (which have apparently since been changed) went largely unnoticed.

It’s rare that a movie with this caliber of star power and prestige goes unreleased in the U.S., though there is one other recent example: The Coen brothers-scripted comedy Gambit, starring Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth, which was shelved in 2012 and quietly surfaced on Netflix and DVD this spring.

Whatever happens with Serena, at least Bradley Cooper got what he wanted out of it. In an interview published this August, Cooper told South Jersey Magazine that he took the role of George Pemberton because he was “very anxious to work with [Beir], who is one of the world’s outstanding filmmakers,” and also because he “wanted to learn to ride a horse.”

Francis Lawrence who directs both parts of the Mockingjay films has spoken with Entertainment Weekly about how the two films will be broken up.

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.”

Collins’ final book presents a gritty narrative about Katniss’ role in the rebellion to overthrow the Capitol, with grim scenes of wartime brutality as the teen heroine struggles with the psychological consequences wrought by violence. But, says Lawrence, the upcoming installment won’t be entirely somber.

“There’s definitely some battles. There’s some of the first glimpses of real war in this movie. And the scale gets quite big,” he reveals. “There’s an atonal shift from some of the last movies, but they’re still very emotional, very sweeping, [on a] grand scale with some levity and humor.”

And there won’t be any major changes from the novel—although Lawrence worked closely with screenwriter Peter Craig, producer Nina Jacobson, and Collins to create new elements that will “surprise even fans of the book.”

“Instead of changing the plot and changing characters what we did was have the opportunity to show scenes that could have been happening at different times in the book,” Lawrence says. “For us it’s world expansion instead of changing things. I think it’s exciting for the fan to see certain things. So we’ve been able to open the world up in this and see some new places. We get to see some new districts this time and the scope gets quite large.”

There’s also the addition of cast member Julianne Moore as rebel President Alma Coin, a character whose role has been expanded for the upcoming films.

“What’s interesting is although she’s a huge character in Mockingjay the book, there’s actually very little of her in it,” notes Lawrence. “There’s more of her in this than in the book and because of that, there’s some development.”
But one thing thing that won’t change? That’d be the love triangle between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).

“With Mockingjay – Part I it’s tricky because Peeta is out of reach for her,” notes the director. “Obviously he becomes an objective for her, but Gale is right there, so that’s always a tricky situation.”

While Lawrence won’t reveal how he divided the final book in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy (“That’s going to be one of the really good surprises,” he says), he shares that the films will have “two different, very distinct stories.”

“Those objectives became the motives for us,” Lawrence explains. “This is where the meaning of the entire series comes into play. The answer to why these books exist exists in Mockingjay, and that’s really been exciting to me. That’s been kind of what I’ve hung on to through these stories.”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 is slated for release on Nov. 21, 2014.

BuzzFeed posted this great article highlighting 51 women that are amazing and Jennifer is #23!

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” ― Nora Ephron

Known for: portraying Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, tripping and falling at practically every award show (and not caring if she does), and most importantly, always speaking her mind

Best quote: “I’m never going to starve myself for a part.I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed.”

Back in November, when Jennifer Lawrence was touring the outlets for her Hunger Games: Catching Fire press tour, she visited Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, who became somewhat fixated on the idea that Lawrence bears a notable resemblance to a young Helen Mirren. He showed her a picture and shouted, “That looks like you!,” but Lawrence, quick as ever, demurred, claiming she wasn’t convinced and chastising Stewart for not having properly prepared for the segment.

Now, some eight months later, the gossip-item cycle has been completed, as Mirren has been asked, by Entertainment Tonight, if she agrees with Stewart’s assessment. “She’s much prettier than I was,” Mirren offered. “But there is a great similarity actually, it’s very true there’s a similarity. We got the little fat cheeks that I used to have.” She continued, “As she gets older that will all fall away and she’s going to be the most beautiful woman . . . She is a beautiful girl. She is going to be spectacularly beautiful woman.”

So, rest tight, J. Law, we know your life probably seems awful and uncharmed now, but you’ve got starlight and beauty in your future!
