Magnolia Pictures has released the official US trailer for director Suzanne Bier’s drama Serena. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, which seems like a slam dunk except for the fact that the film was shot before Silver Linings Playbook and has been sitting on the shelf ever since. Apparently it’s just not that great as distributors refused to acquire the film for quite some time, but this trailer certainly makes the movie look at least interesting in a go-for-broke kind of way. Lawrence and Cooper play 1920s newlyweds who begin to build a timber empire, but their passion becomes hindered as a hidden past is discovered and Lawrence’s character decides to take fate into her own hands.
Watch the new Serena trailer after the jump. The film also stars Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans, and will be released on iTunes and VOD on February 26, 2015 and in theaters on March 27, 2015.
