Fox has released the first trailer for David O. Russell’s Joy, reuniting his Silver Linings team of Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. The Christmas 2015 release tells the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce.
Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen round out the cast. Like Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love. From the looks of this first glimpse, Fox has a hearty feel-good holiday picture on its hands.
Russell penned the screenplay from a story he wrote with Annie Mumolo. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison is on-board as producer alongside John Davis, John Fox, Jonathan Gordon and Ken Mok. Michele Ziegler co-produces while Matthew Budman, Mary McLaglen, George Parra and Ethan Smith as exec producing.
