Trailer Spotlight: Joy


Silver Linings Playbook was an incredible film and a big surprise award contender when it released. It shouldn’t have been a surprise given that David O. Russel was the director and the man only churns out greatness. From Three Kings to The Fighter he s known for pulling incredible performances from his actors and giving a film that always seems to garner award consideration. Silver Linings Playbook was one of those great films that won Jennifer Lawrence her first Oscar and brought Robert De Niro to the land of the living with an incredible character driven piece that showcased just how great O. Russel can be. His latest project Joy is likely to garner similar award consideration. The first trailer just dropped and it screams David O. Russell.

Check out the trailer!

That was definitely and artful trailer. There were just so many shots that clearly indicate O. Russell was at the helm. The smooth cinematic tracking shots that flow effortlessly. The best part is that he got the band back together with Lawrence De Niro and Bradley Cooper from Silver Linings Playbook all showing up in this film as well. This trailer may seem difficult to follow but this cast and director is undeniably special and this promises to be an incredible experience that is certain to gain a lot of momentum later this year when it comes time or Oscar season.

Joy is starring Jennifer Lawrence, Dascha Polanco, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Virginia Madsen and Edgar Ramirez and is set to hit theaters December 25th 2015.
