The gender wage gap is an issue that affects women in almost every single career field, but it’s recently become a more high-profile issue as actors have been speaking out about their income disparity. Jennifer Lawrence recently penned an essay on the subject, with actors like Emily Blunt, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain and even Bradley Cooper chiming in. And while the wage gap battle rages on, here’s one you can add to the winning column: Scarlett Johansson made more money than the majority of her male co-stars in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Over the summer we discovered that our imaginary BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer have become friends in real life, and really, what could be better? Oh, right — it wasn’t long before Lawrence and Schumer revealed that they’re working on a comedy film together. We haven’t heard much more about it since then, though its mere existence has sustained the hopes and dreams of many a J-Amy fan. While we anxiously await this miraculous product of two beautiful minds, Lawrence has a few details to hold us over.
Yesterday came news of massive Hunger Games theme park plans. Next summer, a Hunger Games stage show opens in London. But, will the Hunger Games borrow a page from the Harry Potter playbook and launch a new series of films, a la Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? The producer of all four of the Hunger Games movies certainly doesn’t seem to think so.
“I’m going to kill Snow,” says Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen in the latest clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. And I think we can all agree with the chuckles from Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason, as she declares, “Now you’re talking.” The time for speech-making is done as Katniss prepares to finally take down the man who has caused the districts so much pain in the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise (for now), and we’re right there with her.
Whatever you do, never speak on behalf of Jennifer Lawrence. Seriously, don’t do it. Girl’s got a shotgun. In the latest trailer for David O. Russell’s Joy, we get a longer look at the Lawrence-led family drama, and a really great line courtesy of Robert De Niro.
We know you’re all excited about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while many of you purchased your tickets last night, you shouldn’t forget that we still have several movies hitting theaters between now and December 18 — like the final chapter of The Hunger Games franchise, which sees Katniss Everdeen engaging in all-out war with the nefarious President Snow. Two new TV spots (and a few photos) have arrived to get you suitably pumped for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
Jennifer Lawrence made headlines this past week (as she usually does, for many delightful reasons) for penning an essay in Lena Dunham’s Lenny newsletter about the gender wage gap in Hollywood. Lawrence wasn’t the first (nor will she be the last) to speak up about the disparity, and she received vocal support from a handful of actors, including her American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper. Cooper isn’t content to just talk about the problem — he’s actually trying to do something about it.
It looks like Darren Aronofsky has found his next leading actress. According to Variety, Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in Aronofsky’s next untitled project. And here begins the guessing game for who Lawrence will play for the Black Swan director.
Superhero movies are notorious for their secrecy. Plot details are closely guarded, scripts are printed on dark red paper and actors are shuffled to and from set in long cloaks to prevent paparazzi photos. But, as has been proven, leaks will happen, often from the least likely of places. In a related story, the plot of X-Men: Apocalypse has been revealed…by M&Ms.
It’s taken Katniss Everdeen four films, but she’s finally making her way to the Capitol to confront the nefarious President Snow once and for all…and she’s not alone. The latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is even better than the first, comprised almost entirely of hero shots and action sequences, set to a climactic drum score. It’s time for Panem to turn their eyes — and weapons — to Snow.
