ALITA BATTLE ANGEL

Academy Award winner JENNIFER CONNELLY (Chiren) continues to prove her versatility as an actress with each new project she undertakes.

In 2019, Connelly will star in TNT's futuristic thriller Snowpiercer. Based on the French graphic novel 'Le Transperceneige,' the series will focus on the last survivors on the planet. They inhabit "The Snowpiercer," a train that travels around the globe, which is divided into two feuding classes. Connelly is also set to star in Paramount and Skydance's sequel Top Gun: Maverick. The movie is a sequel to the 1986 original and will star Tom Cruise, Jon Hamm and Val Kilmer with Joe Kosinski at the helm. It is currently slated to be in theaters on June 26th, 2020. The actress is currently in production on both Snowpiercer and Top Gun: Maverick.

Connelly was recently seen in Joseph Kosinski's firefighter drama Only The Brave for Sony Pictures with Josh Brolin, Miles Teller and Jeff Bridges. The film tells the story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a crew of elite firefighters combating wildfires in Arizona.

Other recent projects include Ewan McGregor's American Pastoral, with Ewan McGregor and Dakota Fanning, based on the book by Phillip Roth. In 2014, she starred opposite Anthony Mackie in Shelter, written and directed by Paul Bettany. 2014 also re-teamed her with Darren Aronofsky and Russell Crowe for the biblical epic Noah.

Connelly's first film was Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time in America in 1984, though her big break was her role as 'Sarah' in Labyrinth opposite David Bowie in 1986. She earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her widely praised, haunting portrayal of a drug addict in Darren Aronofsky's critically acclaimed Requiem for a Dream in 2000. She received a Golden Globe, BAFTA, AFI, Broadcast Critics and Academy Award for her starring role in Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind opposite Russell Crowe.
