Last week, the somewhat confusing trailer for Joy, David O. Russell’s latest feature film starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro was released. If that trio of names sound slightly familiar, it should for two reasons: (1) Silver Linings Playbook and (2) American Hustle.
While the trailer is stylish and J-Law looks beautiful, viewers have been left wondering on several points. Does the movie take place in a snow globe? Does Jennifer Lawrence get involved in a infomercial ring gone bad? What is she drawing? Does Bradley Cooper have a lead role?
We may not yet know the answers, but what we do know here at Slate is this: Joy is not the last project David O. Russell will helm starring this group of Oscar winners and noms. (Better luck next time, Cooper.)
The video above is a sneak peek at the horror film coming this fall.
