Watch Katniss and Jon Snow Face Off in ‘The Hunger Game of Thrones’

It's Jon Snow versus Katniss Everdeen

Katniss Everdeen may have faced down President Snow in The Hunger Games trilogy, but she’s never faced down Jon Snow — until now.

A new mashup has Jennifer Lawrence’s fearless bowed heroine facing off against Kit Harington’s sword wielding Game of Thrones character and it’s clear that Winter is Coming to Panem.

In the video, Katniss issues a call to arms against Jon Snow urging her followers to fight against Snow’s forces. Meanwhile, Snow is holed up in the North ready to face down the rising darkness from Beyond the Wall or the wildlings of District 12.

In the clip from YouTube creator David Elmaleh, Katniss intones, “Nothing good is safe while Snow is alive,” but the question is: if Katniss does manage to kill him, will Snow stay dead?

Watch Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Reunite in the Trailer for Joy

"Don’t ever think that the world owes you anything. Because it doesn’t."

With the exception of the critical flop Serena, the combination of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper usually spells good things on the silver screen. Add to the mix David O. Russell, who directed the pair in Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle—which earned a combined 18 Oscar nominations—and it’s worth paying attention.

Though you wouldn’t know it from trailer, which plays like a montage of a life going rapidly awry, Joy tells the story of real-life single mother and Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano, played by Lawrence. Cooper stars opposite Lawrence as an executive at the Home Shopping Network, which ultimately buys Mangano’s company. The trailer has Joy getting thrown behind bars, getting very angry very often and shooting a shotgun, proving there’s drama aplenty wherever you look—even in the invention and sale of home cleaning products.

Co-starring Robert de Niro, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen and Isabella Rossellini, Joy hits theaters on Christmas Day.

Here’s What Jennifer Lawrence Called Taylor Swift After Her Apple Crusade

“Badass” is just the start

Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift continue to transform Hollywood.

Forbes named Lawrence the highest paid actor of 2014, and she’ll reportedly trump the gender gap by receiving almost twice what co-star Chris Pratt will make for upcoming space film Passengers. Swift, on the other hand, recently took a stand for artists’ rights when she wrote an open letter to Apple regarding its decision not to pay artists during Apple Music’s three-month trial period. Apple changed its policy following Swift’s Tumblr note, and for that, Lawrence calls Swift a “badass.”

“That letter that she wrote about Apple, I texted her and was like, ‘Yous a badass b–ch,’” Lawrence told Extra at Comic-Con on Friday.

“She’s awesome,” the Hunger Games actor continued. “She’s a lot more well spoken than I am.”

It only makes sense that Lawrence and Swift have a texting relationship. Maybe Lawrence will be the next of Swift’s friends to join her on stage during a stop on the 1989 tour.

Jennifer Lawrence to Star in Romantic Dramedy The Rosie Project

The dramedy has yet to find a director

Jennifer Lawrence has found love.

The Oscar-winning star, who was at Comic-Con Friday as part of the Hunger Games panel, is attached to star in The Rosie Project, a romantic dramedy being developed by Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were looking to direct the project, but the Lego Movie filmmakers bowed out when they took on the young Han Solo Star Wars movie. The project is now on a fast-track search for a director.

Rosie, an adaptation of a Graeme Simsion book, tells of a socially inept genetics professor who comes up with a scientifically sound survey to find the perfect mate. His plans get curvy when he meets Rosie Jarman, who in her whirlwind manner possesses all the opposite qualities he should be looking for.

Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who tackled quirk and heartache with the acclaimed (500) Days of Summer, wrote the script.

Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan are producing.

Sony is clearly intent on staying in the business of Lawrence, arguably the biggest female star on the world thanks to a mix of a beloved global franchise (Hunger Games, whose final installment, Mockingjay — Part 2, opens Nov. 20) and acclaimed performances in dramas and indies. Lawrence is already in pre-production to star in the studio’s Passengers, a sci-fi love story with Chris Pratt.

The actress, repped by CAA and Hansen Jacobson, is rumored to be back at Comic-Con Saturday for Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse panel. This fall she also stars in Joy, which reunites her with David O. Russell, who directed her in Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

Sony had no comment.

Watch Amy Schumer’s Reaction to Jennifer Lawrence Saying Her Name

Speechless

Trainwreck star Amy Schumer has officially reached the level of fame at which even A-list movie stars know her name — yet she’s still grounded enough to get totally psyched when they say it on television.

In an interview with MTV News, Jennifer Lawrence pitched the idea of starting a Kickstarter campaign to get Schumer to agree to becoming the next Bachelorette, a gig which Schumer previously told EW that she’d accept for the hefty sum of $1 million — “And I would donate it to a charity that would keep that guy Tony from this season away from me. It’s my own charity: He has to stay a football field away from me at all times.”

Late Thursday, Schumer tweeted a video of herself watching the interview, and her reaction to seeing her name come out of Lawrence’s mouth is pretty delightful. Check it out:

Schumer’s memorable spot on The Bachelorette in May immediately led fans to demand that she become the next Bachelorette — even the show’s producers were on board. More seriously, Schumer told EW that she would take the job “if I could be myself, and I would need some hand in the editing.”

And now the comedian knows that the star of Hunger Games is on board, so … ball’s in your court, Schumer.

Age Gap is the New Wage Gap: Just Ask Top-Paid Female Celebrities

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - June 24, 2015

On average, the women on the Forbes List of 100 Top-Paid Celebrities are almost 10 years younger than the men

Aging rockers, has-been radio personalities, and ex-action stars get paid more than A-list actresses. That’s one major takeaway from Forbes’ annual list of the 100 top-paid celebrities this year.

Two things were apparent from this year’s list: women make up only 16% of the top-paid celebrities in the world, and the ones who do make the list are significantly younger than the men. The average age for men on the list was 42– for women, it was 36. If you take out Judge Judy, who at 72 is an outlier by about 15 years, that average drops to just over 33.

In other words: the pay gap is alive and well, even among the richest celebrities, and while male stars are adept at turning youthful success into a lifetime of fame, female celebrity is far more delicate. The average age for men on the 2015 Forbes list does not include the collected ages of The Rolling Stones, the Eagles, and Fleetwood Mac, all ’70s era bands who made the list (Fleetwood Mac includes two women)– if the ages of these men had been included, the average age for men on the list would have been significantly higher. Older guys like Jimmy Buffett (68) Jackie Chan (61) and Howard Stern (61) make the list, but Meryl Streep (66) and Madonna (56) don’t.

The 16 women on the list earned a combined $409 million, while the combined male earnings topped $4.3 billion. More importantly, many of the women on the list tend to be young and beautiful, while older stars are simply not making the cut. Of the 16 women on the list, only a quarter are over the age of 35 (Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, Ellen Degeneres and Judge Judy.) The other twelve are much younger, including Jennifer Lawrence (24), Taylor Swift (25) and Lady Gaga (29). Almost half of the 16 women on the list are under 30.

To be clear–it’s not Forbes’s fault there are so few women on their list, they’re just the messenger here. This year they expanded their annual list of top-paid celebrities to include international icons, and restricted it to on-camera talent (which might be why Shonda Rhimes and Oprah aren’t on it). They assembled the list by measuring earnings from June 1, 2014 to June 1, 2015, then subtracted management fees and taxes. That sounds like a fair methodology for determining which celebrities are making the most money.

And yet, women are notably absent. Lots of women who would ordinarily be on the list seem to be taking a little break this year. As Forbes’s Natalie Robehmed explains, in her post about why there are so few women on the list:

Sandra Bullock clocked an impressive $51 million in 2014′s ranking thanks to her solo payday in Gravity, but a quiet 12 months took her out of the running this year. Other seemingly big stars, such as Emma Stone, have yet to see their earnings catch up with their status. Even Melissa McCarthy, who has proven her ability to carry an action/comedy movie solo with Spy, St. Vincent and Tammy failed to break the Celebrity 100′s $29 million barrier to entry.

Of course, there’s also the fact that there’s a pay gap between men and women in most professions, and Hollywood isn’t immune. As Robehmed points out, it’s no coincidence that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams only saw 7% of the profits for American Hustle, while the male actors got 9%. Women are also less likely to be the main character, which means smaller paychecks, and in other countries the gap is even worse– in Bollywood, actresses make about a sixth of what their male co-stars make.

And yet it’s impossible to ignore the age trend at work here. Among the richest celebrities, all the women young, beautiful, and at the top of their game right now– Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Sofia Vergara are all in the prime of their careers. Not so with the richest male celebrities– Jerry Seinfeld hasn’t been on primetime TV in years, and Adam Sandler hit his stride in the early 2000s.

 

In other words: when it comes to top-paid celebrities, the age gap might be just as important as the wage gap.

Watch the First Trailer for Mockingjay: Part 2

Featuring a tear-inducing hug between Katniss and Prim

Fans of the Hunger Games books know that the second part of Mockingjay is incredibly tragic, but there are moments of bittersweet happiness in the first trailer for the film: most notably an embrace between Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Willow Shields’ Prim.

The trailer also features a look at Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie as Commander Lyme, the wedding of Finnick and Annie, and a reconciliation between Katniss and Peeta. The first part of Mockingjay ended with Peeta, rescued from the Capitol, but still hijacked, acting murderous toward his love.

The final installment of the series is due out in theaters Nov. 20.

Here’s the First Look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2

And spoiler alert: It looks a lot like Mockingjay - Part 1

Jennifer Lawrence posted the first photo from the set of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 on her Facebook page Wednesday featuring herself as Katniss Everdeen and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne.

The picture didn’t exactly spoil any secrets from the upcoming finale to the popular series: it looked, in fact, like it could have come from the set of the first Mockingjay film. The latest propaganda-style poster promoting the final film in the series gives a better hint of what is to come: One shows a crumbling, headless statue of President Snow against whom Katniss and the other rebels are fighting.
