New Trailer for David O. Russell's 'Joy' Featuring Jennifer Lawrence
"The world doesn't owe you a thing." Fox has unveiled the full-length official trailer for David O. Russell's Joy, one of the last films left coming up this awards season that many are anxiously awaiting. Jennifer Lawrence stars as Joy Mangano, a young single mother of three who becomes a successful businesswoman after inventing the Miracle Mop. We've already seen one very impressive teaser so far, but this one kicks things up a notch. David O. also reunites with Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper (the same trio from both Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle previously), plus the cast includes Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. I like the music choices in this trailer. Enjoy.
Here's the second official trailer for David O. Russell's Joy, direct from 20th Century Fox's YouTube:
Joy, both written and directed by David O. Russell, tells the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman (Lawrence) 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. Like David O. Russell's previous films (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle), Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love. Arrives in theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th, this year.

I have a really good feeling about this one. I think out of Russell's recent efforts, this will be the best one.

Is this going to have a crazy TAXI DRIVER third act? "It can happen."

Well it's pretty obvious he likes to rip-off Scorsese's camera moves.

meh. Russell is beyond overrated.

No he is not.

We can both have an opinion. Thats why it's called that. I personally think the dude is WAY OVER-RATED.

I'm curious just because of the cast & their chemistry, and the subject - I love several of Joy's later/current products, I'm curious about her background (other than being a divorced mom of 3, I wasn't aware of anything else).

I don't care if this ends up being a 'meh' movie. Just to watch any David O. Russell scene where more than 2 people interact with each other is unlike anything else in cinema. Pure magic.
