Described as “a moderately-sized trainwreck” in our review of the film out of the BFI London Film Festival, it appears there was a very good reason why Susanne Bier‘s “Serena” didn’t take the fast path to theaters. Shot two years ago, and essentially sitting around on a shelf for a year, the Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper starring film is finally making its way out in the world, and a new clip plus some promo materials have arrived.
The latest look comes courtesy of Glamour Magazine and highlights an axe-swinging Lawrence, the wife of a timber baron, showing the rough and ready dudes how to do the job right. After that you can see a new featurette that explores the chemistry of the two leads, with each actor fawning over the other, and Cooper comparing Lawrence’s skills to those of Robert De Niro. Finally, there’s a U.K. TV spot.
“Serena” opens in England on October 24th, and hits VOD in the U.S. on February 26th, 2015, followed by a theatrical release on March 27th.
