It’s not a David O. Russell movie without Jennifer Lawrence these days, and the first trailer for Russell’s Joy Mangano biopic, Joy, has lots of Jennifer Lawrence to go around. There’s Dancing In The Snow Jennifer Lawrence, Crying Jennifer Lawrence, Contemplative Jennifer Lawrence, Sledgehammer Jennifer Lawrence, more Crying Jennifer Lawrence, Leather Jacket Jennifer Lawrence, Angry Jennifer Lawrence, Shotgun Jennifer Lawrence, and, most likely, Oscar Contender Jennifer Lawrence.
A few other people manage to appear in the trailer amid all the Jennifer Lawrence, including a very brief shot of Orange Is The New Black’s Dascha Polanco. Fellow Russell darlings Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper also appear.
Joy was inspired by the lives of female entrepreneurs like Joy Mangano, the single mother of three behind inventions like the self-wringing Miracle Mop and Huggable Hangers. (She’s the woman you can thank for keeping your silk shirts off the floor.) De Niro stars as Joy’s father, and Edgar Ramirez will play her ex-husband. Cooper plays an executive at the Home Shopping Network.
Joy is due in theaters on December 25.
