Jennifer Lawrence: Mother!, VOGUE, Flu

It was confirmed yesterday that Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, originally scheduled to be released October 13th, will now come out a month earlier, on September 15th. No reason was given for the change. And some are speculating that Mother! could be hitting the festival circuit as Venice, Telluride, and TIFF are all coming up soon and all of them will be making their first announcements about this year’s slate in the next few days.

If Mother! had stayed with October 13th, it would have been up against Marshall, with Chadwick Boseman playing Thurgood Marshall, a performance that already has people predicting an Oscar nomination. Now that Mother! has been moved to September 15th, it will avoid Marshall and go head to head with American Assassin, starring Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien, and Blake Lively in All I See Is You. I’m going to take this to mean that everyone wants to get the f-ck out of Black Panther’s way, even though he’s not officially due in theatres until February.

In support of Mother!, the rumour is that Jennifer Lawrence will be on the cover of the September issue of VOGUE. Which is probably why VOGUE is revealing so much of their Celine Dion coverage now. Apparently Jennifer's VOGUE spread will be a collaboration with artist John Currin whose work has a similar vibe to the Mother! poster that was released a few weeks ago. According to a reader called “E”, if this is true, Jennifer Lawrence would be the first celebrity to cover the all-important September issue two times (thanks E!)

In other Jennifer Lawrence news, she supposedly had the flu earlier this week and threw up at a performance of 1984 on Broadway on Monday. On Wednesday she was with Amy Schumer at a fundraiser at the Comedy Cellar:

Yesterday a reader called “Q” emailed me with this observation:

“When it's announced in 3-4 months that she's pregnant...I said it first.
Call it my witchy sense. You don't recover from the flu that fast, especially the kind you catch from other people's kids.”

Fair enough, Q. We’ll give you some shine if you’re right. But does that means she’s drinking non-alcoholic beer?
