Of course I'm talking about the new trailer for JOY, which stars both Lawrence and Cooper (as well as Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, and Isabella Rossellini) and is directed by none other than David O. Russell (American Hustle, The Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter). Lawrence looks like she's once again playing a character who is likely older than her, and not very convincingly. More on the film below:
JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Already I am concerned about the "emotional" and "human comedy" part, simply because the awkwardness of American Hustle is still fresh in my mind. At any rate, check out the trailer:
JOY is in theaters December 25.
