The latest trailer for David O. Russell’s Joy, his most recent collaboration with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, has dropped.
Russell is dangerously on the edge of sliding into self-parody as he recycles the same actors and tries to make us believe that Jennifer Lawrence is a middle aged mom. Unless you’re on MTV or The CW, this is not a mom.
Still, Lawrence is fighting the good fight, even if she’s blaming herself when she should be blaming her industry and people like Russell a lot more. Besides, ageism isn’t on her radar yet — she’s still five whole years away from thirty. And at least Bradley Cooper doesn’t have a perm this time around.
Joy hits theaters on December 25th.
