Amongst the helping of movies that will be hitting the movie theater this coming month, none is more anticipated than David O. Ru-it’s Star Wars, everyone’s dying to see Star Wars. Right behind that behemoth, however, is a handful of big auteur works that are looking to scoop up an Oscar, including The Revenant, The Hateful Eight, and Joy, the latest film from American Hustle helmer David O. Russell.
Now we have a brand new trailer for the story of the titular mop-inventing mother (Jennifer Lawrence), and the new footage gives a bit more of a key into how the drama of the film will be doled out. This begins with Joy’s home life, which includes her divorced parents (Robert DeNiro and Virginia Madsen) and a few other family members. It also gives a sense of the business relationship between her and Bradley Cooper‘s excited huckster, as well as a more ample showing of the great Isabella Rossellini, whose character hasn’t been completely revealed as of yet. It’s good that the actual mechanics of the story are remaining a secret, as this is one of the few films coming out in December that still has an air of mystery about it. Check out the latest trailer for Joy below:
Check out the official synopsis for Joy before:
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. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
