X-Men: Dark Phoenix will reunite cast with potential newcomer Jessica Chastain

EW – 20th Century Fox’s X-Men maestro Simon Kinberg will make his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix, an adaptation of one of the property’s most iconic story lines. Kinberg’s film will also bring back much of the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Tye Sheridan. Bryan Singer, Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner will produce.

 

Jessica Chastain is also in talks to play the villain, reportedly an alien named Lilandra.

 

Dark Phoenix is an achievement years in the making for Kinberg. He wrote X-Men: The Last Stand, which attempted to tell the Jean Grey story; it wound up as a side story, angering the core fan audience. Kinberg told EW in 2015, “We ended up adding the cure plot into it so there were larger stakes and it included more of the X-Men. The Dark Phoenix story went from being the A-plot to the B-plot of the movie. What’s nice now is my hope is eventually we can tell that story again.”

 

It’s also a coup for Kinberg to reunite the cast, particularly Lawrence, who has been on the fence about returning to the franchise after three turns as shape-shifter Mystique.

 

Dark Phoenix will shoot in Montreal and is due in theaters Nov. 2, 2018.

Jennifer Lawrence Has Heart in the First Poster for Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Mother!’

COLLIDER – It’s not entirely obvious when the backlash to Darren Aronofsky started but it likely started around the time The Fountain was released. The release of two masterpieces in the wake of that wild metaphysical mess rehabilitated his reputation extensively but then the backlash got resurrected with his undervalued, remarkable Noah, in which Russell Crowe played the biblical character. Even bonafide bible-thumpers, the same crowds that showed up for dreck like War Room, didn’t make the trip to see Aronofsky’s film. A popular reason given was that people died and the story was sad, which clearly never happened anywhere else in the bible.

 

Regardless, this is all to say Aronofsky is an ambitious director whether he also happens to be a popular one or not. He’s never made a boring movie and for all the flack that The Fountain and Noah have received, there are very few movies in circulation that look like them and even fewer films that are written with such audacious aims. Addiction, obsession, and pent-up desires are paramount to his films, whether in the guise of heroin in Requiem for a Dream or fame and physique in The Wrestler. Similarly aggressive returns of the repressed can be found in Pi, his excellent debut, and Black Swan, his beloved horror-melodrama starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.

Jennifer & Chris Pratt @ The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Her romance with Darren Aronofsky has been heating up.
But Jennifer Lawrence has joked that it makes her feel ‘miserable’ to see how happy her co-star Chris Pratt and his wife Anna Faris are.
The actors stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where they discussed their new movie Passengers.Jennifer also praised Chris for helping her out when she was afraid of the stunt work required for their new movie, which is set in outer space.’He’s much, much nicer than me. He’s like a hard worker, he has a good attitude, he’s very positive. I’m just like, “When are we leaving?”’ she said.
‘And he had to do basically everything because I suffer from paranoia mixed with delusions. So I thought that if I were in a harness I would never be able to bear children. So he took care of all the harness work. He did all of it.’
When Ellen asked Jennifer if she really believed that might happen, she said with a laugh, ‘Yes, I’m sick.’
‘I put in on for one second and was like, “Hell no.” I mean I had to ultimately do it, I just complained a lot,’ she added, before joking that she didn’t ‘really’ know what the part entailed.

Jennifer Lawrence Pens Passionate Essay on Trump’s Victory: ‘Let This Enrage You’

Jennifer Lawrence may not be happy, but she’s hopeful.

The actress responded to President-elect Donald Trump’s victory, in an essay posted Thursday morning that she wrote for Broadly, Vice’s women’s interest channel. In it, Lawrence asks Americans to think long and hard about the state of the country, and to not place blame on others for Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

“I want to be positive; I want to support our democracy, but what can we take away from this? It’s a genuine question that we all need to ask ourselves,” writes the Oscar-winning actress. “We shouldn’t blame anyone, we shouldn’t riot in the streets. We should think strongly and clearly about what to do next because we cannot change the past.”

As an outspoken opponent of Trump, Lawrence noted that women must work exponentially harder than their male counterparts in order to be heard and taken seriously. “We’re all allowed to be sad that the present isn’t what we thought it was. But we mustn’t be defeated,” Lawrence writes. “We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair.”

The actress also wrote that, although sadness weighs heavily on those who supported Clinton, especially for women and people of color, the fight for progress is not over.

“Do not let this defeat you — let this enrage you! Let it motivate you!” Lawrence write. “Let this be the fire you didn’t have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman — don’t be afraid, be loud!”

Jennifer Lawrence Spotted Kissing Darren Aronofsky in New York City

Things appear to be heating up between Jennifer Lawrence and her new man Darren Aronofsky.
The 26-year-old actress enjoyed a romantic date with the Black Swan director in New York on Wednesday and seemingly couldn’t keep her hands off her 47-year-old beau.
The duo – who are yet to confirm they’re dating – wrapped up in scarves as they strolled holding hands, stopping every now and again to steal a kiss.The Joy star looked great in a stylish black coat and tight jeans which she paired with suede ankle boots.
Darren, who has a 10-year-old son with actress Rachel Weisz, opted for a smart shirt and trousers with grey scarf and flat cap to keep out the chill.
At one point the Oscar winner wrapped her arms around her boyfriend for a playful hug as they walked together. It looked just like a scene from a romcom as the couple stopped outside a flower shop gazing at each other before going in for a smooch.3a0887c600000578-3902154-there_s_no_doubt_the_actress_looks_happier_than_she_s_been_in_a_-a-48_1478192740308
Lawrence and Aronofsky reportedly grew close when they worked on an untitled movie together this summer.
The drama, directed by Aronofsky, is about uninvited guests that disrupt the lives of a couple. The film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Javier Bardem. The new couple were first spotted enjoying dinner together in August in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York.
Over the weekend the twosome were spotted looking blissfully happy as they stepped out with Lawrence’s dog Pippi.
Proving just how close they’ve become the duo even shared a lollipop on the outing according to E! News. Lawrence last dated Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 39, following his split from Gwyneth Paltrow.
And last week People reported Lawrence seems ‘relaxed’ around Darren.
‘She struggled when she dated Chris and seemed very stressed out,’ a source said.
‘With Darren, it will probably be different. He does not attract attention like Chris does.’

Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Are Each Taking on Zelda Fitzgerald

No one wants to pit two powerful women against each other, but that’s kind of what will inevitably happen soon between these two A-listers.

Leading ladies Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence will be thrown into an involuntary comparison battle in the near future, as the two stars are each slated to portray the late Zelda Fitzgerald in dueling biopics.

The Jazz Age icon and wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald died nearly 70 years ago in a fire at a North Carolina hospital, but her life has been at the forefront of Hollywood’s inspiration as of late.

Just as Amazon rolls out its own series, Z: The Beginning of Everything, with Christina Ricci playing the “first American flapper,” films starring Johansson and Lawrence, respectively, are said to be on the fast-track to hitting the big screen. The films are said to dive into Fitzgerald’s personal life, portraying parts of her livelihood that may have been glazed over through history. Along with being a literary muse to her famous husband, she was an author herself, and struggled with her own madness (she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and institutionalized).

Lawrence’s project, called Zelda, is being spearheaded by renowned director Ron Howard. J.Law will also be reconnected with Hunger Games executive Allison Shearmur, who is producing. Emma Frost (The White Queen) wrote the screenplay, which is inspired by Nancy Milford’s best-selling biography of the same name.
Meanwhile, Johansson’s film is titled The Beautiful and the Damned, and is based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic of the same name, which illustrated the dynamics of his marriage to Zelda. The project has yet to snag a director, however, it does have one secret weapon up its sleeve.

Millenium Films, which is financing the movie, secured the cooperation of the Fitzgerald estate, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and “will incorporate newly unearthed transcripts from a sanatorium in which Zelda Fitzgerald was confined that indicate her husband misappropriated his wife’s ideas as his own.”

While the premise of each film has been disclosed, production dates and slated release dates have yet to be determined.
Regardless, each film will become a blockbuster in its own right, thanks to their leading ladies. Both Lawrence and Johansson made it on Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning female movie stars for 2016
