Can these three do anything wrong? After seeing this trailer, I’d say no. The first look at David O’Russell’s next film, ‘Joy’ is out and it looks just as amazing as his last movie.
Like every David O’Russell film, Joy tells the story of family, love and loyalty — and he’s brought along his all star cast to do it. Jennifer Lawrence takes on the role of Joy, an American inventor and entrepreneur. However, the movie takes us through her remarkable life story as a Long Island single mom of three children. The song set in the trailer, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” seems to be more fitting than anything. Watch the trailer here.
Here is the full description of the film:
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. Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen.
“It’s my first film that really has the woman as the star,” David O’Russell told EW. “What’s it like to become a boss and the godmother of a family and dynasty, both emotionally and commercially? You go inside that person’s soul, and it’s alternately hilarious, horrifying, and sort of joyous. Relationships are always complex, and nobody gets to success without breaking some of their own bones—and other people’s, too.”
Joy hits theaters on Christmas. Will you be seeing the film, HollywoodLifers?
