Jennifer Lawrence is one of four covers of the new Entertainment Weekly coming out this Friday. Here is a preview from the article:
The fate of a lot of mutants is up in the air in X-Men: Apocalypse, the subject of this week’s EW cover story, and — spoiler alert — not everyone survives the sixth installment in the franchise. But the future that everyone seems to wonder most about is of Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. The actress’ three-picture deal expires with Apocalypse (along with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult) and Lawrence is the one who vacillates the most between officially agreeing to do another film. “Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking,” she says, “Like, ‘Will you come back?’ ‘I dunno.’ ‘I’ll come back if you come back.’ Fox should be terrified because the deal we made was like if one of us doesn’t come back, none of us are.”
But the actress is quite honest about how much she dislikes the blue body paint required for Mystique (“You go in and you realize you’re rock bottom and like this sucks and it could not suck more.”) and, in the years since 2011’s X-Men: First Class, she’s grown into arguably the most in-demand young actress in Hollywood. “I would love to come back,” says Lawrence. “I love the fans and I love the character. But then you realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don’t know. I shouldn’t be that honest.”
This one might take a studio executive with superpowers to figure out.

The X-Men: Apocalypse has released a full trailer:
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Jennifer Lawrence is poised to trade in Katniss’ bow and arrow for a pistol in her next role as real-life “Jane Bond” Marita Lorenz.
The Golden Globe winner’s new project is “Marita,” a pitch from “American Hustle” writer Eric Warren Singer about Marita Lorenz, a German-born American woman who cozied up to some of the most famous dictators of the 20th century. Lawrence will produce the romance spy drama with Matt Tolmach, Scott Mednick and Andre Rouleau.
Lorenz began an affair with Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro at the age of 19, became pregnant with his child and left the country after she had an abortion. She later joined forces with anti-communist groups in the United States, where she was recruited by the CIA to assassinate Castro.
As the story goes, Lorenz returned to Cuba in 1960 to kill Castro using poison pills, but instead revealed the assassination plot and declared her love for the leader.
Lorenz later had an affair with a Venezuelan dictator and claimed to be involved in the JFK assassination. Her account was later refuted, however, earning her the title of “a patron saint of conspiracy buffs.”
“Marita” represents a departure from JLaw’s American sweetheart types, so we’re anxious to see if she continues her hot streak all the way to Havana.
Paramount Pictures said this morning that Jennifer Lawrence indeed will star in an untitled film directed by Darren Aronofsky. Scott Franklin and Ari Handel of Protozoa will produce the pic, about a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. The studio is eyeing a 2017 release.
News of this pic first broke back in October when newly minted Golden Globes winner Lawrence exited The Rosie Project, the Richard Linklater film from Sony based on the Graeme Simison novel.
