2015 | Joy > Official Teaser Trailer Captures/li>
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. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Jennifer Lawrence was at the Comic-Con this Saturday for the X-Men: Apocalypse Panel and the Stan Lee Superheroes Selfie. Here are photos and the video from the entire Fox Panel, and some candids from the Entertainment Weekly Party:

And the cast *tries* to do the Mockingjay whistle
Jennifer Lawrence is lining up a new project, and this one already had prestigious pedigree before she signed on. THR reports that the Hunger Games actress has attached herself to the romantic dramedy The Rosie Project, which boasts a screenplay by (500) Days of Summer and The Fault in Our Stars scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and was initially intended as a directorial effort for Jump Street filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Now that Lord and Miller have signed on to helm a Star Wars movie, however, Columbia Pictures is quickly looking to fill the director’s chair.
Based on the book by Graeme Simison, the story centers on a professor of genetics who embarks on a project to help find him to the perfect partner, using a very specifically designed questionnaire. He is thrown for a loop when Rosie Jarman, who fills none of the criteria of the woman he should technically be with, stumbles into his life. The premise feels very close to Manic Pixie Dream Girl territory, but with such talent involved I’m inclined to believe (or hoping, rather) there’s more to the story than what this simple premise suggests.
With Lawrence’s attachment, Columbia sees this as a top priority and the studio hopes to put the project on the fast track. Lawrence recently wrapped a reunion with David O. Russell for Joy and is currently shooting X-Men: Apocalypse, and she has the sci-fi drama Passengers scheduled to start production later this year. If The Rosie Project comes together, though, it’s possible cameras could roll early next year, and the romance/dramedy would certainly make a nice change of pace from the more serious or grueling fare Lawrence has been tackling as of late.

Jennifer Lawrence to be on Conan
Jennifer Lawrence and the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Josh Hutcherson, & Liam Hemsworth, are set to be on Conan this Thursday, July 9th.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, & Liam Hemsworth say good-bye Panem in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.” Conan’s so sad, his tears might ruin his full-on Effie Trinket cosplay.

Hollywood’s two hottest stars are teaming for a new movie set in outer space — but only after quite a bit of behind-the-scenes drama could have taken it out of Sony’s orbit.
Sony Pictures’ new motion picture chairman Tom Rothman has greenlighted Passengers, a big-budget romantic sci-fi drama starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt with Oscar nominee Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) set to direct. And thanks to a deal that tied his remuneration to the success of Jurassic World, which broke box-office records with a $524.1 million global opening over the June 12 weekend, Pratt’s fee has jumped from $10 million to $12 million.
Lawrence, an Oscar winner and considered a top star, is getting an exceptional $20 million against 30 percent of the profit after the movie breaks even, say sources. Sony declined to comment.
Whatever the famously fiscally prudent Rothman’s misgivings might have been about paying such big bucks to talent or risking $150 million ($120 million with production incentives) on an original script that has floated around Hollywood for years, he now finds himself in possession of a two-hander star vehicle with the most in-demand male and female actors in the business.
Passengers is set to begin filming in July so Sony has been under pressure to act. Sources say Rothman wrestled with whether to greenlight it, put it in turnaround or place it with Jeff Robinov’s nascent Studio 8, which is partly owned by Sony and will distribute its films through the studio but has outside financial backing.
Lionsgate has confirmed what everyone already figured was going to happen: the studio is sending The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 to Comic-Con next month to drum up hype for the lucrative franchise’s final pic which is due out November 2o. The Hall H event July 9 will include another Lionsgate fall offering — the Vin Diesel-starrer The Last Witch Hunter — and both panels will be moderated by Conan O’Brien, who will be in San Diego to broadcast his TBS late-night show Conan live from the mega-convention to air Wednesday-Saturday that week.
Lionsgate says both panels, set for Thursday, July 9 from noon-1:15 PM, will feature never-before-seen footage from the tentpoles and Q&As with the stars and filmmakers. No word on who will make the trip but Diesel is a Comic-Con regular. His movie has an October 23 release date.
The panels dovetail with Lionsgate’s booth that will offer up swag from those pics as well as fellow upcoming pics Shaun The Sheep (release date: August 7, 2015), American Ultra (August 21) and Sicario (September 19, 2015).
Last year at Comic-Con, Lionsgate passed on Hall H to promote Mockingjay – Part 1 ahead of its fall bow. Instead, it took to San Diego’s Gaslamp and partnered with Samsung to build a futuristic fan experience designed like the Capitol, located inside the Hard Rock Hotel. Plenty lined up to watch an exclusive trailer on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S.
Congratulations to Jennifer and the rest of the cast and crew of the first part to Mockingjay!

The first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has just been released. Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the 76th Hunger Games!
he MOCKINGJAY Epilogue Was Filmed This Weekend
The final two films of The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, were filmed simultaneously last year, but one crucial scene was left unshot when production wrapped. When it came time to film the epilogue of Mockingjay – Part 2, the conditions weren’t right—director Francis Lawrence explained to us that they needed green landscapes, and that wasn’t the case in Atlanta when filming was winding down. So, since Mockingjay – Part 2 wasn’t coming out for over a year, the team decided they would return to Georgia later, when the conditions were favorable, and shoot that last scene.
Well that time has now come and gone, as over this past weekend Lawrence, producer Nina Jacobson, and the actors involved in the epilogue assembled in Atlanta to shoot the last scene of The Hunger Games ever. Those who’ve read the books know what we’re talking about, but in the interest of avoiding spoilers I’ll say no more.
The question of when the epilogue would be shot had been posed to Lawrence quite frequently as of late, so he and Jacobson took to Twitter to confirm that indeed production was underway on the scene. It’s nice to know that they were able to wait until things were just right to shoot this very crucial moment, but it’s also a little sad knowing that cameras will never roll on The Hunger Games again (until the inevitable reboot in 5-10 years, of course).
