Jennifer Lawrence stars in the first Joy trailer
The teaming of star Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell seems like a match made in heaven. The two have combined for SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and AMERICAN HUSTLE, both of which lead to Oscar nominations for each of them. Their next collaboration looks like more of the same, with Jennifer Lawrence being the center of attention and clearly the lead in JOY. The first trailer is set to the Rolling Stones ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ and plays more like a music video, but it’s enough to get me excited to see what they have in store for us. Check out the first trailer below and see if you’ll be seeing this after you see Star Wars this Christmas.
The official synopsis for JOY: 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. JOY stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Robert DeNiro, Elisabeth Röhm, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. The David O. Russell directed film hits theaters on December 25th.
