Mother! Has a Worst-Possible 'F' on CinemaScore

She has created much buzz with her recently released film, 'Mother!' directed by her alleged beau, Darren Aronofsky. Since her Best Actress Oscar-nominated turn in the 2010 backwoods thriller Winter's Bone, Lawrence's star has risen dramatically in Hollywood, by helping The Hunger Games franchise earn almost $3 billion at the global box office and three more Oscar nominations (including a Best Actress win for Silver Linings Playbook). Aronofsky said he wanted to build on the idea that while we may ignore what's happening on the other side of the world, we all can identify with the discomfort of someone invading our home and privacy. The film opened in cinemas last weekend, and earned a very low cinemascore of F from audiences.

The American filmmaker's latest project stars his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence as the title character, whose relationship with her husband (Javier Bardem) is pushed to the limit when uninvited guests arrive and cause havoc at their house.

As far as Lawrence is concerned, her director (and current boyfriend) Aronofsky knew what he was doing.

India, Australia resume ODI rivalry
After India scored 281/7 - recovering from 11/3, 64/4 and 87/5, rain delayed the Australian reply by more than two hours. In a near ideal first hour for Australia , Steve Smith could have made it better had he held on to a catch second slip.

It's heartbreaking for my pals at Paramount who did everything they could to market this movie.

Darren Aronofsky "doesn't mind" that people are "upset" by 'Mother!'. After two weeks, "It" has become the largest grossing film in September box office history. "You always want to entertain your audience, and you want to bring them somewhere that they didn't know they were going to go". It collected a disappointing $3.1 million on the opening day for a projected $8 million weekend, the worst in Lawrence's career. "Presently I find out about their identity, yet at the time, I didn't know their identity", Bardem revealed to MTV News reporter Josh Horowitz at the NY squeeze day for the film. Hence, upon actually seeing the movie, the crowd might have been disappointed because they were expecting a different kind of experience.

She said: "Now I have an understanding". I'm now weighing a fourth go-round with the movie, and don't think I'd be bored in the slightest.
