Jennifer Lawrence


Take two of the hottest stars in Hollywood, put them together in a big Sci-Fi/Romcom/Action/Adventure December movie with a talented director and you’ve got box office gold. That’s what Sony is banking on this Christmas movie season when Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence pop onto the big screen in director Morton Tyldum‘s (The Imitation Game) Passengers. Now we’ve finally got the first trailer and it looks incredible. Pratt and Lawrence already set the expectation bar high, but throw in the scifi setting and a robotic bartender and you can call it a day. (more…)


The script for Passengers has been awaiting production for nearly a decade now, having been included on the 2007 Black List, which is Hollywood’s annual ranking of their most admired scripts that haven’t been greenlit. The film then had a amplitude of hurtles to overcome just to get to where it is now. Having been bounced around before finally being picked up by Sony Entertainment in 2014, the film began production in Atlanta in 2015. And now finally, Entertainment Weekly has released a couple of teaser pictures of Passengers staring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt(more…)


The final trailer for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse hit the Internet toady and confirms a long rumored cameo. If you want to stay completely in the dark until you see [REDACTED] on the big screen, you might want to skip this final trailer, as awesome as it is. The whole gang is here, making the transition from student to full-fledged X-Men, with more than a few other well-known mutants thrown in. Jennifer Lawrence‘s Mystique leads the fledgling X-Men against Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his Four Horsemen, Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Archangel (Ben Hardy), and Psylocke (Olivia Munn). There’s also a first look at the Blob which was recently posted by Singer on Instagram. (He’s not the special cameo we’re not talking about.) (more…)


It’s a strange feeling, that of watching the final entry into a modern-day movie franchise.  Specifically designed to build implicitly upon what has come before, the “average movie-goer” almost feels obligated to watch the previous cinematic entries in the series right before going to check out the new film, just to ensure that he or she has all the knowledge needed to catch all the references and call-backs being made.  Thus, it’s no major fault of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (I’ll just call it “Part 2” from here on out, for fear of carpal tunnel syndrome kicking in after typing all those words) that this final entry into the mega-blockbuster YA franchise feels slowly paced, taking the time it needs to answer all questions posed in the previous films and wrap up all necessary “loose ends” as tidily as possible.


SDCC15: Hunger Games Mockingjay- Part 2 Ends with a Bang


Juggernaut film, The Hunger Games, is set to end its astounding three year run on the big screen, this November, with the much-anticipated release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Of course they did not disappoint, as fans and press were treated to a one of a kind send off as a crew of drummers came out to bang a beat on a set of timpani drums. (more…)


The casting gods smiled on X-Men: First Class when Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence were selected for the rebooted cast just before they blew up and became critically-acclaimed, award-winning brand names in acting in the summer of 2011. Since then, Lawrence has won several Oscar nominations, picked up a second franchise in The Hunger Games, and is probably the actress at the top of every casting agents speed dial for all roles requiring someone young and female. Well, it looks Lawrence is going to open up more time for new roles because she’s saying now that along with the final Hunger Games coming out this year, next year’s X-Men, Apocalypse, will be her last. (more…)


It’s not as if we weren’t expecting it, how could Screen Junkies resist such low hanging fruit? The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 was just begging for it and Honest Trailers gives it the shot to the knee that the franchise deserved for splitting up that last book. The shortest book in the series. So grab your favorite snack and weapon and hit the play button. (more…)

Is J-Law Ready to Believe You in ‘Ghostbusters 3?’


Obviously, if you’re in the market to produce a remake/reboot/restructuring of a huge and influential mega-franchise, then you could do worse than courting one of Hollywood’s favorite young actresses. Jennifer Lawrence already has two franchises under her belt, and when she’s not doing that she’s courting Academy Awards by co-starring in new films by David O. Russell. On the other hand though, The Hunger Games franchise is winding down with next year’s release of Mockingjay – Part 2, so Lawrence will need something else to occupy her time. Like a proton pack. Is it so outrageous to think Lawrence, Tinseltown’s latest in a long line of girls next door, might be up for some ghost busting in the often discussed new Ghostbusters film by Paul Feig? The answer may surprise you. (more…)
