The “honey trap” has long been a staple in spy fiction for nearly a century. The femme fatale trained in the art of seduction acting as a double agent vs. the aloof, professional spy whose only weakness is a great pair of legs or eyes or nostrils or whatever. Red Sparrow, based on the novel of the same name by veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews, brings this kind of film noir tale into the modern day: Jennifer Lawrence will play Russian intelligence officer Dominkia Egorova, who becomes a sort of reluctant Mata Hari and is assigned to an American CIA agent. The Hunger Games’ Francis Lawrence is directing, and the film just cast Jeremy Irons and Matthias Schoenaerts.

New ‘Passengers’ Promo Video Makes the Sci-Fi Thriller Look Like a Rom-Com, and We’re Worried

You’ve got two of the world’s biggest movie stars, a sci-fi, romance hybrid, and a release date right in time for the holiday season. A perfect recipe for success, yes? So it would seem for the new Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt-led Passengers. Yet with every new trailer, I’m getting increasingly convinced that Sony has no idea what to do with this film or how to market it. The third trailer was released online today, and dear lord in space heaven, it is bad.

‘Passengers’ Trailer: How Upset Is James Cameron For Not Thinking of ‘Space Titanic’?

Somewhere, James Cameron is shaking his head and chuckling to himself, wondering why the heck he didn’t think of setting Titanic in space because it seems so obvious now — especially with this new trailer for Passengers, the Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi romance that looks like it was made with an algorithm. Take the two most beloved actors on the planet, put them in a shiny, futuristic sci-fi movie and smoosh their faces together while making kissy noises. Cha-ching.

Jennifer Lawrence Speaks Out on Trump Election: ‘Let This Enrage You!’

As the star of the Hunger Games franchise of dystopian films, Jennifer Lawrence knows a thing or two about speaking truth to fascist power. Luckily for her, volunteering as tribute in our current apocalypse does not require fighting teens to the death for the entertainment of a bloodthirsty crowd (yet); she just wrote a letter and ran it on Vice’s feminist-oriented vertical Broadly. The outspoken celebrity has been no great fan of Donald Trump, and was horrified to watch him seize the Presidency during Tuesday night’s election. Now, she’s made her voice heard, and she wants the American people to get angry.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt Woke Up Early for a Reason in New ‘Passengers’ TV Spot

Original sci-fi stories are slowly becoming more popular in Hollywood. It’s an exciting prospect, as normally we’re all inundated with adaptations of superhero comics or popular books or remakes of older films that we already know the endings to. Movies like Interstellar and Oblivion are, arguably, a lot more exciting, allowing a director or a writer to create their own world from scratch, and keeping the audience in the dark as to how it all ends. Passengers is one of these, a sci-fi romance with a central mystery at its core that’s bound to keep viewers guessing until the end.

Darren Aronofsky’s Mysterious Jennifer Lawrence Thriller Has a Title, Will Hit Theaters in 2017

Setting aside the squirm-inducing recent reports that Darren Aronofsky and Jennifer Lawrence are dating (let’s just not even), the director’s next project remains one of our most highly-anticipated new films of…well, whenever. According to Paramount, “whenever” is sometime in 2017, and we finally have a name for this mysterious thriller, so we can stop referring to it as “Darren Aronofsky’s mysterious new thriller and oh by the way did you know that he’s dating Jennifer Lawrence, weird, right?”

Novels like The Great Gatsby and The Beautiful and Damned cemented F. Scott Fitzgerald’s status as a literary icon, but some bookish types (myself included) would argue that his wife, Zelda, was the more talented of the pair. Her creative contributions have certainly been less valued in comparison to her husband, but thanks to Ron Howard, she’s finally getting the biopic she deserves (or one would hope), with Jennifer Lawrence set to play the title role in Zelda.

Trailer teasers seem to be the next big thing for large-budget blockbusters these days, giving us a taste of a taste of the movie we’ll be buying tickets for months from now. Today brings us the trailer teaser (or trailer trailer) for the new original sci-fi Passengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Written by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts and helmed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Passengers is set on a luxury spaceship housing 5,000 passengers all bound for a colony 120 years’ journey away. For everyone to remain alive until they get to their new home, all of the people onboard are put into hypersleep so that their bodies remain in stasis. Mysteriously, two of these passengers are awakened by the ship 90 years before the end of the trip, they first fall for each other and then learn that they’re the only people who can save the crew from a deadly malfunction.
