Now that’s how you celebrate Mother’s Day. Earlier today, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky shared the first poster for mother!, his new horror/thriller featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. With an angelic expression on Lawerence’s face in the above excerpt, you might be forgiven for thinking that this poster is a kind and gentle teaser for a movie that is more creepy than graphic. Well, by all means, don’t let me stop you from scrolling down to reveal the full horrifying artwork on the mother! poster below.

Last night brought bad news from Paramount for Friday the 13th fan looking forward to the long-delayed reboot (or good news for those not wanting it to happen). But it also gave Darren Aronofsky fans something to get hyped about. We finally have a date for the director’s next project.

The people have been making some pretty questionable choices for themselves as of late. Some big politics thing is happening tomorrow, there’s that, and last night marked the 43rd Annual People‘s Choice Awards, the populist awards program that does away with the snooty prestige of the Oscars. The evening delivered some rather eyebrow-raising results in its recognition of the most widely beloved entertainers of the year, and though none quite confounded on a Trumpian level, the night was full of what we’ll diplomatically call “surprises.”

by ScreenCrush Staff January 5, 2017 @ 9:11 AM
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving is all about.

‘Long Takes’ Episode 4: Would ‘Passengers’ Work Better As a Horror Movie?

by ScreenCrush Staff January 2, 2017 @ 8:09 AM
We need to talk about Passengers. The new Sony film from director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) and screenwriter Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as two people who fall in love in space. But this space romance isn’t as innocent as it sounds.

These ‘Passengers’ Publicity Photos Prove Chris Pratt’s Character Is a Total Creep

by ScreenCrush Staff December 30, 2016 @ 11:13 AM
In Morten Tyldum’s Passengers, Chris Pratt’s Jim and Jennifer Lawrence’s Aurora Lane are the only passengers on a spaceship who wake up 90 years too soon. Alone and stranded in space, Aurora and Jim go on dinner dates, take late night dips in the pool, and quickly fall in love. Sounds sweet, huh? Just look at the film’s marketing, in which Pratt adoringly gazes at the woman he loves. But Passengers has a much creepier and troubling premise buried beneath the veneer of a love story. Once you realize the film’s “twist,” those publicity photos reveal Pratt’s character for the creep he really is.

Scarlett Johansson Is the Highest-Grossing Actor of 2016

by Britt Hayes December 28, 2016 @ 12:07 PM
Near the end of every year, Forbes releases their rankings of the top actors in Hollywood based on their box-office value and earnings (along with a list of the most overpaid actors, which is always interesting). This year, Scarlett Johansson tops the list of the highest-grossing actors in Hollywood, followed closely by Marvel co-stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., who tied for second place. What makes Johansson’s ranking even more notable, however, is her earnings — while RDJr. placed ninth on this year’s list of the highest-paid actors with $33 million, Johansson ranked third on the actress list with $25 million.

Imagine, you’ve given up your life on Earth, paid a ton of money to take a 120-year-long nap, and when you wake up you won’t have aged a day and will be starting over on a brand new planet. Now imagine something goes wrong and you accidentally wake up early. You’re stuck on a ship that can’t return to Earth and won’t reach its destination before you die. What do you do?

Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts Joining Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Red Sparrow’

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.
