At long last, the very first Serena trailer and poster for director Susanne Bier’s period drama. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as a 1920s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry. Infidelity and infertility leads Serena (Lawrence) to become suspicious of George’s (Cooper) illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government. Remember all the buzz surrounding Lawrence and Cooper in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook? Well Serena was actually shot 10 months before the David O. Russell film came out, so you can say this one has been sitting on the shelf for a spell. This trailer doesn’t make the movie look especially bad—it looks fine—but alas, as the picture is slated to open overseas next month, a U.S. release date remains elusive.
Hit the jump to check out the first Serena trailer and poster. The film also stars Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans, Sam Reid, and Sean Harris and opens in the UK on October 24th.
