Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Together Again In New Movie Serena – the pair famously created some Oscar-winning movie magic when they appeared together in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook and are about to be seen together again in new movie Serena.
The new drama sees Jennifer and Bradley starring as newlyweds in a 1930’s setting in North Carolina.
George and Serena Pemberton own a timber business that is doing well but their personal life is not going as they would like and their life is further complicated by the fact that they find out that Serena is unable to have children. The situation gets more complicated when Serena discovers that her husband already has a son from a previous relationship.
The movie, which is directed by Susanne Bier (In A Better World), is to premiere at the London Film Festival in October. It will then go on general release here in the UK from 24 October. It is due to be released in France and Australia in November and Germany in December but strangely there is no date yet for the movie’s US release.
Bearing in mind the huge critical and commercial success that the Cooper/Lawrence pairing achieved in Silver Linings Playbook this seems an extraordinary omission. SLP received 8 Academy Award nominations including nominations in all 4 of the acting categories (the first movie since Warren Beatty’s Reds in 1981 to get nominations in all 4 acting categories).
Another strange feature of Serena is the fact that filming for the movie had finished by May 2012 but it has taken all this time for the movie to get ready for release. Danish director Bier was also working on the Pierce Brosnan movie Love Is All You Need during the time she was trying to finish Serena and there seems to not have been enough time planned in to finish Serena to give an earlier release date nearer to Silver Linings Playbook’s release.
The word is that it is another powerful performance from Best Actress Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and she may even get another Academy Award nomination for her role in the movie.
It would be some welcome good news for Jennifer who has had a difficult few days with the recent disclosure that she is one of a number of celebrities who have allegedly had nude photos stolen from their private online accounts.
