Paramount Vantage has officially scheduled a release date for Sundance winner Like Crazy.
The well-received Like Crazy, which stars Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence, will be in limited release Friday, Oct. 28.
Jones was awarded a special jury award for acting at Sundance for her performance. The 21-year-old Yelchin said in an interview with THR at Sundance that the improvisation done in the film was “magical.”
The romantic drama, which won the grand jury prize for U.S. dramatic film at this year’s festival, revolves around two college students — one American (Yelchin) and the other British (Jones) — who meet in Los Angeles and fall in love. It was the first film to be bought during the Park City-set fest, with Paramount and Indian Paintbrush paying $4 million to release the Drake Doremus-directed film worldwide.
Just added to the gallery some pics I have a long time and always forget to upload. These include some more outtakes from esquire photoshoot and Miu Miu Ready-to-Wear Autumn/Winter show in Paris:
Jennifer did a brand new photoshoot for GQ magazine! She looks really awesome. Check it out:
Unless you were among the tens of hundreds of people who saw Winter’s Bone, last year’s acclaimed indie thriller about the Ozark meth trade, or the tens of tens of people who saw an episode of The Bill Engvall Show, the unacclaimed TBS sitcom that was canceled in 2009, your grand introduction to Jennifer Lawrence was probably Oscar night back in February. If the name doesn’t ring any bells, you’ll remember the dress: arrest-me red. Four-alarm-fire red. I’m-20-I’m-hot-and-I’m-already-nominated-for-a-goddamn-Oscar red. Lawrence didn’t win that night, but let’s just say we couldn’t tell you what Natalie Portman wore.
In June’s X-Men: First Class, the franchise reboot-slash-origin story set in the 1960s, Lawrence’s color palette shifts to electric blue. She plays the budding mutant Mystique, a fleshy role that was first inhabited on-screen by Rebecca Romijn—which means the series is graduating from an actress with a body for the part to one who can actually play it. Englishman Matthew Vaughn directs, and he didn’t need to see Winter’s Bone for proof that Lawrence was right for the role. (He still hasn’t seen it.) For Vaughn, she was just a no-name girl from Kentucky who popped on her X-Men audition tape. “There are a lot of young American actors right now who haven’t got any technique,” says Vaughn. “And to be blunt, a lot of these kids assume that just by having a good set of teeth and tits, smiling for the camera’s gonna be enough. I needed someone who could act.”
Whatever he saw, it’s contagious. Jodie Foster cast Lawrence in this month’s dark comedy The Beaver, now better known as the movie Mel Gibson finished just before he Mel Gibson’d again. And Lawrence just locked up the most coveted young-actress role in Hollywood: the lead in The Hunger Games, based on the dystopic best seller about a teen huntress forced to compete in an annual contest where kids battle to the death. Lawrence is quickly cornering the market on steely chicks with molten cores, and Vaughn says it’s because “she’s got a set of balls on her.” Teeth, tits, technique—and testicles, too? Let’s get back to that dress.
Jennifer will be on the cover of Teen Vogue May issue! She looks absolutely fantastic in this brand new photoshoot. Here are some pictures and some highlights of the issue’s article:
On Landing the Lead in The Hunger Games: “The cool thing about Katniss is that every fan has such a personal relationship with her, and they understand and know her in a singular way.”
On Katniss: “She’s incredibly powerful, brave, and tough—and yet she has a tenderness and complexity.”
On Skipping High School to Pursue Acting: “Some people think I missed out, but if I had the choice of being in class or moving to New York, I got the childhood of my dreams.”
On Being a Tomboy at Heart: “I was a cheerleader for six years, but I also have this totally competitive side. I’ll wrestle anyone at any time.”
On filming X-Men First Class: “I had a blast. I was living in London for five months, and the whole cast . . . we all legitimately love each other. We got addicted to hanging out.”
On being a good girl: “Sometimes I get anxiety about not staying up late enough. I’m not the one in the corner, but if anyone was like, ‘I want to go home and watch The Big Lebowski,’ I’d be right there with my hand up.”
Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence recently sat down with Total Film for an exclusive chat about X-Men: First Class.
Lawrence plays mutant shapeshifter Mystique in Matthew Vaughn’s 60s-set superhero prequel.
“The Mystique we know from the original X-Men is a confident, strong, powerful woman”, she told us.
“But in this film she’s a kind of insecure girl, who’s discovering herself, her sexuality and her opinion of things.”
We’ll also see Mystique stray from Charles Xavier’s flock to join forces with Magneto: “It starts as a little crush [on Magneto] but then I start to like his view of the world.”
Lawrence has also been familiarising herself with Mystique by getting immersed in the character’s comic-book backstory (“I’m still reading it…”) and studying Rebecca Romijn’s performance in the previous X-movies to get the physicality down: “She has a very specific walk!”
Lawrence also trained for two hours a day for five months, before learning that her stunt double would be handling a lot of the rough stuff: “I was like, ‘Grrr!’ But I guess it meant less time wearing the make-up, so I wasn’t too disappointed.”
I started capping second season of The Bill Engvall Show. Here are the first 3 episodes:
At SXSW this year everyone expected Mel Gibson’s new movie to be pretty poor but it turned out to be one of the best movies I saw at the conference. The Beaver is directed by Jodie Foster who also stars in the movie alongside Gibson, Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence. It tells the story of a depressed man (Gibson) who finds comfort through a stuffed hand puppet, ‘The Beaver’.
The beaver will be released in the UK 17th June.
Directed by Jodie Foster
Two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with two-time Academy Award® winner Mel Gibson in The Beaver – an emotional story about a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life.
Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track…until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.
Also starring Anton Yelchin, Academy Award Nominee Jennifer Lawrence, Cherry Jones

If you see broken thumbnails in the gallery the next few hours its because we are going to update them and it may cause some temporary issues.
