The next Bradley Cooper-Jennifer Lawrence-David O. Russell project is almost here. Are you excited to see it? Here’s a first look at Joy.
Joy is set to be released on Christmas Day in the US. It is inspired by the life of Joy Mangano, an American woman who created inventions such as the “Miracle Mop” and the “Huggable Hangers”, holds over a hundred of patents, is the president of Ingenious Designs, LLC – worth over $1 billion – and has sold millions of products. She’s also a mother of three children.
The movie also stars Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Jackie Brown) as Joy’s father, Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Isabella Rossellini (Enemy), Édgar Ramírez (The Counselor) and Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black).
Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly released several exclusive stills from the movie.
Needless to say, it will almost definitely be an Oscars contender. Can it beat its predecessors Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle in awards season? We’ll see. But for now, this is all we have.
