Reuniting his Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in a way that will hopefully make everyone in the world forget all about Serena and Accidental Love, David O. Russell’s next film – Joy – has a teaser trailer to share.
This one looks every inch Lawrence’s movie. She plays real-life inventor Joy Mangano, a mum with three kids to raise and only her wit, ingenuity and patent-pioneering smarts to help her do it.
Before long, Joy’s not just watching the Home Shopping Network, she’s starring on it – with a brand new invention in tow; the so-called Miracle Mop.
O’Russell loves plumbing dysfunctional families for comedy and pathos, whether the surrogate kind (Three Kings, American Hustle) or the real deal (The Fighter, Silver Linings). And this one looks to be no exception.
Joy also features Robert De Niro as Joy’s Father and Edgar Ramirez as her feckless husband. Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd and Virginia Madsen are also on board.
Joy will hit UK cinemas on 1st January. Watch the teaser below.
