    Scholastic announced today that it is publishing Suzanne Collins’ new Hunger Games prequel novel, currently untitled, which will hit shelves on May 19, 2020. The novel will be set in the world of Panem 64 years before the events of the original Hunger Games trilogy on the morning of the reaping of the 10th Hunger Games — well before the lifetime of the story’s protagonists Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence on-screen. “As the proud home of the Hunger Games movies, we can hardly wait for Suzanne’s next book to be published. We’ve been communicating with her during the writing...

    The GoFundMe campaign that generated $20 million in private donations is being shutdown and those who donated are being refunded their money unless they decide to donate it to a newly-established 501(c)4. Brian Kolfage, the veteran who started the campaign, on Friday posted the following message on the campaign's website: Eight days before Christmas I started this GoFundMe campaign because I was tired of watching the U.S. government’s inability to secure our southern border. Like most Americans, I see the porous southern border as a national security threat and I refuse to allow our broken political system to leave my family...

    Harvey Weinstein boasted that he had sex with Jennifer Lawrence, according to new court documents obtained by In the papers filed by Jane Doe in Los Angeles she alleges Weinstein bragged about bedding the 28-year-old Oscar winner. The woman claims Weinstein, 66, acted inappropriately when they met in New York to talk about a film called Vampire Academy. After their dinner meeting the pair went to his office where she claims he kneeled in front of her and performed oral sex. When she started crying Weinstein responded: "I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has...
  • Trump-era politics creates turmoil, firings and, sometimes, great ratings for entertainers

    Washington Post ^ | August 31, 2013 | Steven Zeitchik
    [snip] A year and a half into the Trump presidency, entertainment companies are grappling with a fan base that is splintering into political factions as never before. Whether in regard to explicitly political entertainment or the rapidly multiplying number of entertainers who talk about politics, Americans appear to be increasingly figuring ideology into their Hollywood ­choices. Some fans, to be sure, have long been drawn to or repelled by the occasional outspoken celebrity — Jane Fonda for her antiwar views, for example. But fans are now judging a much wider range of entertainment and entertainers for the way those people...

    The A-list actress' recent stumbles with 'Red Sparrow,' 'mother!' and 'Passengers' are no reason to gloat. The death of the movie star is bad news for everyone in Hollywood. In 1993, John Travolta’s career was teetering on the brink. The actor, who’d become a superstar with Saturday Night Fever and then added to his luster with Grease, had all but ceased to matter as a cultural force. True, he could still deliver the occasional hit, such as Look Who’s Talking, but at the domestic and foreign box office he was a has-been, someone largely remembered for a white sharkskin suit...
  • Oscar Ratings & ‘Red Sparrow’ Sunk By Hollywood’s Liberal Trump Bashers?

    Deadline ^ | March 8, 2018 | Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr.
    FLEMING: Why were the Oscar ratings down 19% to the smallest viewership level of all time? I found it a most satisfying show. Jimmy Kimmel and producers Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd did a fine job all the way to the finish line this time, owning last year’s gaffe and ensuring it didn’t happen with foolproof 100-point type on each envelope. Kimmel was hilarious; the film montages and special presenters infused the 90th Oscars with a sense of film history. Compared to the men-are-bad funereal atmosphere of the Golden Globes, this show was fun but still managed graceful moments...

    When I look back at the best movies of the year, I remember films that I admired for their artfulness or technical prowess, but I also remember films that reminded me why I love movies — the ones that truly had spirit. Here, then, is my list for the Top 10 movies released in 2012. Let me know how it compares to yours. 1. “Argo” — Ben Affleck has won me over. Before, I thought he was merely tolerable in boring roles, just skating by on his good looks. But after “Gone, Baby, Gone” and “The Town,” he has matured...
  • Box Office Poison: Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Red Sparrow’ Bottoms Out at $17 Million

    Jennifer Lawrence’s big-budget Red Sparrow is underperforming big time at the box office. Already-modest predictions called for a $20 million opening. As of now, it looks like $17 million, which is a disaster for a product that, with promotion and advertising, cost in the neighborhood of $120 million. This is also another disaster for Lawrence, whose star has declined swiftly since she revealed herself to be an anti-Christian bigot and a divisive, mean-spirited, left-wing jerk. Her last big film, mother!, opened on 2400 screens to just $7.5 million. Prior to that, even with Chris Pratt on the poster, Passengers couldn’t...

    “The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me,” the Oscar-winner said. “Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.” Lawrence also revealed how President Trump’s victory invigorated her interest in politics. The Hunger Games star said she’s liberal and previously opted not to alienate huge swathes of her audience — as well as her Kentucky-based family and friends, who she admits don’t like her left-wing politics. “I’ve always thought that it was...

    I find it odd that people call Wednesday hump day. “When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more or less.”Oh sure it’s technically in the middle of the work week. But when you wake up on Wednesday morning do you actually say “yippee! I’ve made it half way through the week!” Because you haven’t. And if you can convince yourself on Wednesday morning that you only have 2 more days to work, well, you’re a true optimist.So my guess is that like many modern conventions Hump Day as a concept was made...

    Jennifer Lawrence is a lot of things — Oscar winner, advocate, and Emma Stone’s biggest fan, among others — but one thing she’s not? A high school graduate. In a preview of Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes, Lawrence, 27, opens up about her decision to forgo an education in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, for a career in Hollywood. “I struggled through school. I never felt very smart,” says Lawrence, whose new spy thriller Red Sparrow (in theaters March 2) finds her playing a Russian intelligence officer who makes heartbreaking sacrifices at a young age. “And when I’m reading this...

    Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence hit back at feminists who attacked her for wearing a “revealing” dress in cold weather, writing on Facebook Wednesday that she is “extremely offended” and calling her critics “sexist.” Lawrence came under fire for wearing a Versace dress, which critics described as “revealing,” while posing for a photo with her Red Sparrow co-stars Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, and director Francis Lawrence, who wore winter coats. Helen Lewis, the deputy editor of the New Statesman, received thousands of likes in her critique of Lawrence’s choice of clothing.

    She’s played everyone from “Hunger Games” protagonist Katniss Everdeen, to a jealous wife in “American Hustle,” to a ballerina-turned-Russian spy in her latest film, but Jennifer Lawrence says her next role could be portraying a real-life potential 2020 contender. When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.” The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump. The commander in chief has called Warren — who claims partial Native American heritage — “Pocahontas” before, most recently at a November event honoring...

    Jennifer Lawrence revealed in a speech on Monday night that she was forced to participate in a “degrading and humiliating” lineup while naked and was told to lose weight when she was starting off her acting career. Lawrence, who was being honored at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles, stood at the lectern and detailed her experience of being mistreated in the entertainment industry. “When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks,” the 27-year-old actress said to a crowd that included Kristen Stewart,...
  • Jennifer Lawrence: I Didn’t Know About Harvey Weinstein’s ‘Deeply Disturbed’ Behavior

    After nearly a week of silence, actress Jennifer Lawrence said Monday she was unaware of Harvey Weinstein’s “inexcusable” behavior and the claims that the former Weinstein & Co. boss had sexually harassed young women for decades. In a brief statement to The Hollywood Reporter late Monday, Lawrence — who worked with Weinstein on her 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, for which she won the Oscar for Best Actress — said the allegations against Weinstein are “inexcusable and absolutely upsetting.” “I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know...
