The Rise of Jennifer Lawrence


As popular off camera as she is on, Jennifer Lawrence is a rare kind of celebrity who's both idolised and relatable. Whilst the 27-year-old's films have grossed over $5.5 billion worldwide and she's got a mantelpiece brimming with awards, she's just as much loved for her cool wit and goofy charm. She deserves a Lifetime Achievement award for her epic Oscars tumble alone.

So, as you sit back and fantasise about her being your bestie, here's a reminder of how she got to where she is today…

Hunger Games
Although she'd already earned an Oscar nomination for her role in 2010's Winter's Bone, Jennifer Lawrence shot into the public eye quicker than one of Katniss' arrows when she took on the central role in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games book trilogy. And just like the heroic archer, she won the nation's heart.

Silver Linings Playbook
Sorry, Bradley Cooper, but Jennifer stole the show as quirky dance enthusiast Tiffany Maxwell in 2012's romantic comedy-drama Silver Linings Playbook - and she snagged an Oscar to prove it. No wonder director David O.Russell has since pulled her in for with her two more collaborations. As far as dance sequences go, this film offers the best.

American Hustle
Jennifer's supporting role in her second project with David O. Russell earned her a BAFTA win and cemented her position as one of the finest comedians of her generation. As Roselyn, the unstable but endearing wife of Christian Bale's con artist, she singlehandedly ensured that we can no longer reheat a ready-meal in the microwave without shouting 'science oven!'

Passengers
The dilemma faced by Chris Pratt's Jim Preston strikes a chord with us all… If you were woken 90 years early while travelling through space and had to decide between spending the rest of your days alone or in the company of Jennifer Lawrence, what would choose? It's a no brainer. Okay, so it's not as straightforward as that but we can't think of a better actor than Jennifer to portray Aurora.

X-Men
Jennifer might not be recognisable when she's covered in blue body paint for her role of shapeshifting Mystique in the X-Men franchise, but there's no doubt that she's awesome. She first appeared in the superhero series in 2011's X-Men: First class. X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse followed, with X-Men: Dark Phoenix lined-up for later this year. We can't wait.

mother!
What better way for Jennifer to showcase her incredible range and versatility than with her role in Darren Aronofsky's psychological horror? If you thought she went to some dark places as Katniss in Hunger Games, you haven't seen anything yet… In mother!, she stars alongside Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer in a story about a young woman whose peaceful life disrupted by the arrival of some uninvited guests. After pushing herself to her very limits and leaving us at the very edge of our seats, there's no doubt that Ms Lawrence is a true acting legend.











All I See Is You - New Clip and Poster


ALL I SEE IS YOU - Available on digital platforms from 26th February, and on DVD from 5th March, 2018

Blake Lively (The Shallows, The Age of Adaline, Gossip Girl) and Jason Clarke (Everest, Zero Dark Thirty) shine in a disturbing and obsessive love story that defies genre, when ALL I SEE IS YOU reaches digital platforms on 26th February and DVD from 5th March, 2018, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Gina (Lively) and husband James (Clarke) have an almost perfect marriage. After being blinded as a child in a nearly fatal car crash, Gina exclusively depends on James to feel and ‘see’ the world around her, and it appears only to solidify their extremely passionate relationship. She envisions the world in her own vivid imagination with help from James' descriptions. While the two enjoy a colourful existence living in Bangkok, their relationship is upended when Gina receives a corneal transplant and regains her sight. With her restored vision, Gina experiences the world with a new sense of wonder and independence which James finds threatening. It is only when Gina suddenly begins to lose her sight again that she finally realises the disturbing reality of their marriage...

Directed and written by Hollywood heavyweight Marc Forster (World War Z, Quantum of Solace), ALL I SEE IS YOU is a dark psychological thriller unlike any other, with a vital and career-defining performance by Blake Lively. Also starring Danny Huston (American Horror Story, Wonder Woman) ALL I SEE IS YOU is unique, unmissable and totally compelling viewing.



Tomb Raider - New Trailer & Poster


Brawler. Hunter. Survivor. Lara Croft is back. Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander stars in this fresh adaptation of the action-adventure. Join one of the world's most formidable heroes as she journeys into the unknown to solve her father's mysterious death, while fighting to find her place in the world - could this be the making of her?

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.  Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent.  Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.  Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.  But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.  Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.  If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
