Dark Phoenix : Official Trailer

20th Century Fox debuted a second trailer for the long-awaited next (and presumably final) installment its X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix. Directed by Simon Kinberg, the film reunites James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, and others to adapt the Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. The story is one of the best-known from the X-Men comics franchise, in which mutant Jean Grey is exposed to radiation, which boost her powers. We see a bit of this in the trailer: the X-Men head to space and are hit by a “mysterious cosmic force.” Jean vanishes and reappears on Earth, and we see her speaking with someone (played by Jessica Chastain), who tells her that “if you stop fighting that force inside you, if you embrace it, we will possess the very power of a god.” That spells trouble for the rest of the X-Men, who have to find a way to contain that power and save their friend. The film is the sequel to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, The Dark Phoenix storyline was originally covered in Brett Ratner’s 2006 film X-Men: Last Stand, but when the franchise’s timeline was reset with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fox had an opportunity to give the story another chance. The studio released its first trailer last fall, showing off the danger that Jean Grey’s powers pose to the world, and the complicity that Professor Xavier (played by McAvoy) has in her formation. X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives on June 7th, 2019. Check out the photos below. Gallery Links: – Movies > X-Men: Dark Phoenix – 2018 > Official Trailer

Jennifer Lawrence gets political in short documentary where she talks about ‘the total political system failure in America’

Jennifer Lawrence is the star of a new documentary about corruption in the American political system. The film is called ‘Unbreaking America: A NEW Short Film about Solving the Corruption Crisis,‘ and lasts just over 12 minutes. The film is by Represent.Us, an anti-corruption group, which seeks to bridge the political divide, creating anti-corruption laws that ‘stop political bribery’ and ‘fix broken elections The actress is a board member for the organization and at one point in the film co-founder of Represent.Us, Josh Silver, makes an appearance.   Against a backdrop of bright graphics, Lawrence talks about flaws in politics and makes it clear that she isn’t talking ‘about Democrats and Republicans.’ ‘I’m talking about the flaws that exist in our politics system regardless of which party is in power,‘ Lawrence says. ‘…look, the government is ours. We pay for it, so it needs to work for us, and right now, it doesn’t,‘ she adds. Lawrence highlights one of her concerns, if an issue has 0 percent support or 100 percent support, there’s only a 30 percent chance that Congress will take action on it, she says, because lobbying interests dictate policy. Lawrence asks, ‘how do we unrig this system?‘ ‘I’m obsessed with this idea, not just of unrigging it but actually fixing it,’ she continues. She talks about changing things on the local level, ending gerrymandered voting districts, mandating transparent political spending and overhauling lobbying laws. All of the suggested reforms are put in a ‘model law’ called the American Anti-Corruption Act. Silver adds that politicians win in the current system so for change to occur they need to go ‘around’ Congress with cities and states all across America passing anti-corruption acts. They present the argument that if laws are changed at the local and state level then federal officials will have almost no choice but to enact laws that would reduce the influence of money in American politics and policy. On its website, Represent.Us says it needs 11 million people to watch the film. Watch: Check out the photos below. Gallery Links: – Other Projects > RepresentUs > 2019: Unbreaking America

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are engaged!!

E! Jennifer Lawrence is on her way to becoming a Mrs.! The A-list actress and boyfriend Cooke Maroney are engaged, Lawrence’s rep confirmed to E! News. Speculation that Jennifer, 28, had accepted a proposal from Cooke, 34, made headlines when the bride-to-be was spotted wearing what sources described to Page Six as a “massive ring” on her finger during a recent date night. J. Law was first romantically linked to the art gallerist in June 2018. It’s reported that the pair was introduced by Jennifer’s best gal pal and date to the 2014 Oscars, Laura Simpson. In the months that followed, the Oscar winner and her boyfriend would enjoy a romantic getaway to Europe and share PDA during outings in New York City. Unlike Jennifer’s prior outlook on love, which included much more public relationships with Nicholas Hoult and Darren Aronofsky, she and Cooke have decided to get to know each other away from the public eye.

Jennifer Lawrence denies Harvey Weinstein’s claim in latest assault lawsuit

Vanity Fair The latest accusations against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein have taken an unusual turn, dragging Jennifer Lawrence into Los Angeles Superior Court. A lawsuit filed Thursday by “Jane Doe” alleges that Weinstein lured an unnamed plaintiff into meetings in which she was sexually assaulted. During one of the alleged assaults, according to the lawsuit, Weinstein boasted of an affair with Lawrence that led to her winning the 2012 Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. “He expressly reminded her that he was the gatekeeper to her dream by claiming, ‘I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has just won an Oscar,’” the lawsuit says. The victim’s lawsuit claims Weinstein repeatedly exposed himself, groped her and forcibly initiated oral sex in private settings dating back to 2013. Hours after the suit was filed, Lawrence and her camp issued a statement supporting the plaintiff, but nonetheless denying an affair with Weinstein. “My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein,” Lawrence said. “I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him. This is yet another example of the predatory tactics and lies that he engaged in to lure countless women.” Weinstein denied any wrongdoing, as well as the alleged affair. “There is absolutely no truth to the malicious claims made in this lawsuit, and we are reviewing our options with an eye on filing for an immediate dismissal,” an attorney for the former film producer said. “Mr. Weinstein is embarrassed for Ms. Lawrence with whom he has only had a professional and respectful relationship, who has sadly been dragged into this ugly attempt at defamation. This filing further proves that anyone can say whatever they want in a lawsuit for maximum shock value, to defame and debase, without having to offer any facts or reality.” Weinstein is due in New York Supreme Court on December 20 for a hearing on criminal charges against him. Over sixty women have accused the mogul of sexual assault and harassment, triggering investigations by federal prosecutors, the NYPD, L.A. County District Attorney’s office and beyond. The unnamed “Jane Doe” of the recent filing is seeking both unspecified damages and a jury trial.
