One of our favorite on-screen couples are back together for the third time — and they look better than ever. The official trailer and still photos for ‘Serena’ were released on Sept. 12, and we’ve got to say: this could be the movie that lands Bradley Cooper his first Oscar.
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper have definite chemistry, so it makes sense that they portray husband and wife in the new film adaptation of Serena, a Depression-era drama. In the trailer, we meet newlyweds Serena and George Pemberton, the characters who are deeply in love — and JLaw and Bradley once again don’t disappoint.
From the moment Bradley, 39, comes galloping up on a horse to Jennifer, 24, we knew this movie was going to be great. The film, based on the Ron Rash novel, is set in the late 20s in North Carolina. Bradley’s character George falls madly in love with Jen’s character, Serena — but he’s in the process of trying to hold on to his timber empire. When George learns Serena cannot bear children, their relatoinships and lives are put on the line.
Along with the trailer, the first official posters were released, showing Bradley and Jen together — both looking so good. In other photos, we also see Jennifer on a horse, looking very classically beautiful.
The film also stars Rhys Ifans as Galloway, Sean Harris as Campbell and Toby Jones as Sheriff McDowell, and is set to be released in the UK on October 24, 2014. Will you go see it, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it will win an Academy Award? Let us know.
