Deadline has a report on Jennifer Lawrence discussing her recent BAFTA award win for American Hustle. Director David O Russell accepted the award on Lawrence's behalf, since she opted not to attend the ceremony. Instead, she remained on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, filming her role as Mystique, when she learned the news that she won the BAFTA. Below are some highlights from Lawrence.
Lawrence on winning a BAFTA for Hustle: "Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn't remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one so I put it out of my mind. So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!' And I said, ‘Oh, go f*ck yourself!' And then it turned out they were serious."
Lawrence on working instead of focusing on award campaigns: "It has been a bit of a blessing to be away, and not really aware of what has been going on. It actually has been really nice."
Lawrence on if she's excited about getting ready for Oscar season: "Exciting? I'm trying to go back to that place where dress fittings seemed exciting. I've had one fitting here in Atlanta and I think I have the final fitting on the day of the awards. So I just hope it fits."
Lawrence on if she has gotten the "Oscar thing down": "Ha! Have you not seen my last Oscar moment? I handled myself so well. I think it's really unfair to make a person speak in front of the entire world at a moment like that because it is just so overwhelming. It was terrifying and what I regret now is not doing what you're supposed to, which is even having a few words, something, that you can say, or even some idea if they do call your name. Every time my mind when there, I would feel so much anxiety that I couldn't think about it. Then when they called me, I got up on stage and said happy birthday to Emmanuelle Riva from Amour, and then I walked off without even thanking David, or Harvey Weinstein...It looked like I was drunk. I did learn, though, not to let the dress gather in the front when you walk up the stairs."
It was more of the same on top of the box office this weekend. The LEGO Movie took the #1 spot for the third time with $31.5 million. The film had another small drop, only down 37% from last weekend. The movie has now scored $183.2 million domestically and $234.4 million worldwide thus far off of a $60 million budget. A domestic gross of $250 million remains a likelihood at this point.
Kevin Costner's 3 Days to Kill was solid if not great with $12.3 million. The film opened more or less at what the studio was expecting for it. The action-thriller's B CinemaScore should translate to average drops over the coming weeks. The film averaged $4,283 from 2,872 theaters and had a $28 million budget.
Pompeii came in with a dull thud at #3 with $10 million. The Paul W.S. Anderson period disaster epic averaged $3,766 from the 2,658 theaters it opened in and was below the mid-to-high teens that TriStar was rather fervently hoping for. The B CinemaScore will mean okay drops, but that isn't enough to save it from the $100 million budget. On the plus side the film opened strong overseas--where Anderson always seems to do well--and brought in $22.8 million for a total worldwide weekend gross of $32.8 million.
Down one in its second weekend was Robocop, finishing at #4 with $9.4 million. The action remake fell 57%, which is just slightly high for an fanboy action film. The film has now grossed $43.6 million domestically and a solid $143.6 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million.
George Clooney's The Monuments Men was down one spots to #5 in its third weekend with $8.1 million. The war drama has now grossed $58.1 million domestically and $84.5 million worldwide from a budget of $70 million.
About Last Night saw its grosses evaporate in its second weekend. The romantic comedy remake brought in $7.4 million, falling a nasty 71%. The film has brought in $38.2 million from a budget of just $12.5 million.
Ride Along was down one spot in its sixth weekend to #6 with $4.7 million. The Kevin Hart/Ice Cube buddy comedy has grossed a total of $123.2 domestically and $127.2 million worldwide from a $25 million budget.
Frozen refuses to fade away, holding steady at #8 in its fourteenth week with $4.4 million. The film has now $384.1 million domestically and $980.4 million worldwide on a budget of $150 million. It is now the fourth-highest grossing animated film of all-time and nineteenth highest grossing film domestically, behind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's $402.1 million.
Endless Love took a hefty drop, down four to #9 with $4.3 million. The romantic drama, like About Last Night, saw itself ignored following its Valentine's Day opening and fell 68%. The film has grossed $20.1 million domestically and $26.6 million worldwide on a $20 million budget.
Closing out the top ten was Winter's Tale, also down heavily from last weekend. The film dropped three spots with a $2.1 million gross, down a brutal 71%. The film has now grossed $11.2 million against a budget of $46 million.
The weekend box office tally was $108.9 million, up 5% from last year's three-day take of $103.5 million that was led by Identity Thief's third weekend of $14 million.
Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
