‘Serena’ Exists! New Image, plus a UK Release Date Announced

serena-jennifer-lawrence-sliceBelieve it or not folks, Serena hasn’t completely disappeared into the ether. The curiosity/potential awards player/internet punching bag of sorts has long been discussed, but very little has been seen of it. About a year ago, Magnolia picked it up for distribution, but it’s still an unknown when it comes to a 2014 stateside release. That being said, it’s going to be hitting across the pond in October, specifically October 24th. It’s one of a few European release dates that have come out, so perhaps the United States isn’t far behind?

For those of you who don’t know what this is, Serena is a period piece that stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence (teaming up once again) and is directed by Susanne Bier. When I spoke to Bier last year for her film Love Is All You Need, she was evasive about this one, but that could be for any number of reasons. Regardless, a New Image from the flick has dropped, and it features Lawrence on a horse. At this point, I just want to see this movie and figure out if it’s worth Oscar’s time or not. When we know what’s actually going on with Serena, we’ll obviously keep you in the loop (especially in relation to an Academy Awards candidacy), but in the meantime take a look at the still of Lawrence below…
