Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are quickly becoming the Burns and Allen of this decade, having already appeared in three movies together. Their fourth will be the autobiographical drama Joy, which gets its first trailer today. The film is not only noteworthy for once again pairing two of today's biggest stars. It also marks the third collaboration between the pair, co-star Robert De Niro, and director David O. Russell.
Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy's inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.Read More

Sony Pictures has moved quickly to give the green light to their sci-fi thriller Passengers, starring arguably the two biggest Hollywood stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that, following the Earth-shattering success of Jurassic World, Chris Pratt's price has jumped from $10 million to $12 million, while Jennifer Lawrence is pulling in a whopping $20 million against 30% of the profits after the movie breaks even. Production is scheduled to begin in September on a $150 million budget.
The original screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange, Untitled Mummy Reboot) has been circulating around Hollywood for years, centering on a passenger who is one of several people on an interstellar journey that will take nearly a century to complete. Chris Pratt plays a man who wakes up 90 years too early, leading him to awaken a female passenger (Jennifer Lawrence) so he doesn't die alone. They both discover a malfunction on the ship that could put all of their lives at risk. The project had previously been set up at The Weinstein Company with Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon set to star, where it was budgeted at just $35 million. Warner Bros. was also in talks to pick up the project and make it for $65 million.Read More
Lionsgate released a brief teaser trailer back in March, which was attached to prints of The Divergent Series: Insurgent, but it didn't include any actual footage, only a compilation of dialogue from the first three movies, along with an animated version of Katniss' mockingjay pin. Over the past few weeks, we have seen a number of posters from The Hunger Games franchise finale, but today's image offers our first real look at some of the main characters. It's possible that the actress could release a new photo every day, leading up to the trailer, or whatever is released on June 9, but we'll have to wait and see.
