Jennifer Lawrence is Joy in first trailer for David O. Russell's new movie

Joy David O. Russell Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper Robert De Niro Banner

The first trailer has been released for David O. Russell's JOY starring Jennifer Lawrence as the titular character, and while there are a bunch of shots from the film, it's one of those teasers that doesn't really tell us much about the movie. I'm not really complaining though since it's still a solid teaser, and that's why we have synopses, right? The upcoming dramedy also features Lawrence's SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, as well as Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Rohm and Isabella Rossellini.

"My name's Joy, by the way."

Synopsis:

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. 

David O. Russell hasn't made a bad movie yet in my opinion (ACCIDENTAL LOVE doesn't count), and I wouldn't be surprised if Jennifer Lawrence lands another Oscar nomination for her performance in the film. What are your thoughts on this first look at JOY?

JOY is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2015.

Sold!

This looks to shoot strait to the top of the Oscar race. Yeah there's plenty of time as of yet, but I can't hink of annother garanteed Best Acress nominee for this year in the upcoming months. Meaning Lawrence will likley be the frontrunner for her second Occar win (at least for the time being). Also mabey Cooper will finnially win his long overdue best actor Oscar or Russel his best director.

Isn't Bradley Cooper's role in this actually pretty small, though? Edgar Ramirez is the male lead, not Cooper — he just gets billing because of his name recognition. I seem to remember hearing that Cooper only actually filmed like 4 days for this movie. I can't find a source on that, so I could be totally off-base, but I definitely don't think this is what's going to get Cooper his first trophy. Getting Lawrence her second trophy, at the ripe old age of 25? Now that's a distinct possibility.

You may be right. I'm not entirley shore how substantial a part he will have. All though who knows with the Academy. J.K. Simmons and Heath Ledger both won Best Supporting actor for what were essentially lead roles so anythings possible.

Jennifer Lawrence is one of those once-in-a-generation American actresses who has resisted easy categorization. Sure, she's got a YA franchise and a super-hero franchise, because that's what actors do these days, but she has never seemed content to simply coast on her looks (a lot of very good, award-winning actresses have been pigeon-holed at some time in their career for that very reason). But really, while Winter's Bone is still probably my favorite performance of hers, I credit Russell with

No disrespect to Lawrence, she is absolutley deserving of everything but she shold thank God for David O. Russel. We all should. The pairing of them is no less than a cinematic match made in heaven.

Count me in

Everything about this looks like the kind of film Meryl Streep might have made when she was Jennifer Lawrence's age, and I mean that in the best way possible. With a cast like that and David O. Russell behind the camera, how could anyone pass this up? Can't wait.

That was a really good trailer. It looks good and based off how much I enjoyed Cooper and Lawrence's last three films together, this should be no different. Looking forward to it.
