Now that we’ve all come back down to Earth following Monday night’s Star Wars news, it’s nigh time we start recalibrating our seasonal hype for David O. Russell’s comedy-drama, Joy.
The filmmaker’s highly anticipated followup to 2013’s American Hustle reunites his Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro for the true life story of the Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano.
Lawrence plays the titular role alongside a supporting cast that includes Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, and Elisabeth Rohm. Months ago, we saw a hyper-stylized trailer and today there’s a new story-driven one to behold.
Joy hits theaters Christmas Day.
