The Hunger Games franchise, comprising four films based on Suzanne Collins's books of the same name, made Lawrence a household name for her portrayal of the talented archer. Starring Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Woody Harrelson, the first film directed by Gary Ross was released in 2012, followed by the three others helmed by Francis Lawrence.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which serves as a prequel to the films, stars Viola Davis, Rachel Zegler, Tom Blyth, Peter Dinklage, Jason Schwartzman and Hunter Schafer. The film chronicles Coriolanus Snow’s (played by Donald Sutherland in the previous films) rise to power to become the President of Panem. It is slated to release on November 17.

Lawrence's upcoming film — No Hard Feelings — is a raunchy comedy in which the actress plays the role of a Uber driver hired by a wealthy couple (Matthew Broderick and Laura Benanti) to date and seduce their 19-year-old son (Andrew Barth Feldman). Directed by Gene Stupnitsky, the film is set for a June 23 release.
