Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique Covers EW's Summer Preview, 'X-Men' Producers Considering Spinoffs

Jennifer Lawrence is front and center on the cover of this week's EW, which is rolling out its sprawling Summer Preview. It's cool that when Lawrence shares the cover with A-listers Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender, she's still the centerpiece.

TV Mavens, Check Out 'The Writers' Room,' Hosted by Jim Rash (VIDEO PREVIEW)

This is my idea of a good time: a smart TV series about my fave TV shows and the writers who write them. So far I've seen three half-hour episodes (presented by The Sundance Channel and Entertainment Weekly). Each show features Oscar-winning screenwriter Jim Rash ("The Descendants")-- who also acts on "Community" and wrote, directed and stars in summer hit "The Way, Way Back"-- gently interviewing the showrunner and various writers and usually one star of a hit show. They talk shop, and luckily Rash--who is sharp, funny and curious--has a good sense of how to get entertaining intel out of these gifted people.
