Watch: Official Trailer for 'Burnt' Starring Bradley Cooper as a Chef
"The kitchen is the only place I ever felt like I really belonged." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first official trailer for Burnt, formerly known as Adam Jones, the "other" chef movie. Bradley Cooper stars as Chef Adam Jones, a once-famous chef who loses it all and must start from the bottom again. This trailer makes it seem like a very intense, very focused look at the ups and downs of the life of a famous chef. The impressive ensemble cast includes Alicia Vikander, Jamie Dornan, Lily James, Sienna Miller, Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl and Omar Sy. I'm not sure if this is just a really good trailer mixing up lots of the footage or what, but I really want to see this. They got my attention. Enjoy!
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for John Wells' Burnt, originally from Yahoo:
Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). BURNT is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances. Burnt, originally called Adam Jones, is directed by John Wells, of August: Osage County and The Company Men previously. The script is by Steven Knight, from a story by Michael Kalesniko and Knight. TWC will release Burnt starting on October 23rd this fall.

looks good but come on....the seriousness of dialogue "you could be killed for opening a new restaurant" was laughable!

I agree, along with 'the only place I feel at home is in the kitchen'...which also made me chuckle as did the line you pointed out.

You need to stop using Yahoo's video player. It's TERRIBLE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1G5E5Eo1wo

I don't know about this one, Alex. I believe I'll wait and see what you write after seeing it first. How's that?...lol.. I'm hit and miss with Cooper, mostly miss lately, but this does have a good cast. Where was Ms. Vikander in this trailer? Ummmmmm....

Agreed, so you take a look at it and let me (us) know. After all, it's free for you and plus you get paid for doing so. Pretty good deal, man. I shall anxiously wait for your review and opinions.

As "dark" as this looked, cooking professionally is still a much darker rabbit hole. Unfortunately, TV has glamorized chefs into rock stars, but really they are a bunch of uneducated, self-destructive drama queens (or at least the famous ones anyway). Most kitchens are 95 percent Hispanic with very little English being used. Copious amounts of drug use, both legal and illegal. And quite dirty. Sure, there are some which run like Swiss time pieces, but 1% is hardly a majority. All that being said, I will watch this for the inevitable bits of food porn.

I remember my friend worked at one of the super fancy hotel in Edinburgh and the two main chefs there were French heroin addicts, but apparently the food was always quite good and on time.

Say what you will about their lifestyles, chefs seem to always pull out great food, even if it is usually out of their asses!!~ 😛

Sorry for bitching. Glad to know you agree. Thank you for this website.

I think it looks reminiscent of Burning Man. Interesting that Bradley Cooper would take on this role as one of the first things I've seen him in is an old comedy for FOX called "Kitchen Confidential" based off Anthony Bourdain's book. So perhaps he wanted to do a more dramatic take on kitchen life (the book was hilarious, the show not so much).

It looks like there's nothing new in this, but, when it comes to Uma Thurman, I can make an exception. And, food looks delicious ...
