David O Russell
Though 2012's awards season has only recently come to an end, that doesn't mean filmmakers and studios aren't already plotting 2013's Oscar campaign. And it looks like David O. Russell wants to win a little gold statue as -- for the third time in four years -- he's got a new film scheduled to come out at the end of the year.
Jennifer Lawrence is emerging as the clear frontrunner to win Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars for her role in 'Silver Linings Playbook' alongside Bradley Cooper. So what will she do as a follow-up? Lawrence has signed on to reteam with Cooper and her 'Silver Linings' director David O. Russell on the upcoming film 'American Bulls--t.'
'Silver Linings Playbook' may be a buzzed about Oscar contender, but more than that, it looks like a good movie. Not a "Good" Movie like 'The King's Speech' but an actual good movie. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in this tale of people who feel like damaged goods coming together, and now there's a great clip from the film online.
Having won an audience prize at the Toronto International Film Festival, David O. Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook' is now a big dog in this year's Oscar race. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in this film about messed up people trying to reconnect with the world, and now there's a mushier second trailer.
'Silver Linings Playbook' asks an important question: are audiences interested in watching Katniss Everdeen and that guy from 'The Hangover' try to overcome crippling sadness for two hours? The success of the film depends on the answer to that question being a "yes." The new poster for the film does its best to convince you of that "yes," mainly by reminding you of how gorgeous its lead actors are.
It's good to be a rich heir to a powerful family. It means if you want to become a movie producer, it's no problem. And for Megan Ellison it means that if she wants to see a movie, then it's something that she can finance without sweating. And so we may see David O'Russell's 'American Bulls---' with Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.
