'Silver Linings Playbook' Trailer: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and the Return of Chris TuckerMike Sampson |
Though we're in the think of the summer blockbuster movie season, it's never too early to start looking ahead to Oscar season. Case in point: the new Bradley Cooper / Jennifer Lawrence trailer for 'Silver Linings Playbook' which looks like it could be a candidate for more than a few awards.
The film is based on the bestselling novel by Matthew Quick and follows a former high school teacher (Cooper) recently released from a mental hospital after a four-year stay. The only problem? He thinks it's only been four months and sets out to win his ex-wife back. But along the way, he meets the equally crazy Ronnie (Lawrence) and, well, I think you can see where this is going.
It all sounds fairly standard but there's something about this trailer that shows off a little charm. Perhaps it's the inherent likability of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence or perhaps it's the direction of David O. Russell ('The Fighter') or perhaps it's just nice to see Chris Tucker acting again! (Though don't expect any 'Rush Hour' style humor here.)
The film hits theaters this November and with The Weinstein Co. also releasing 'Django Unchained' and 'The Master' this holiday season, it will be interesting to see which of these films gets the big Oscar push.
