New Trailer For Jennifer Lawrence’s Upcoming Film Fills Us with Joy

See what I did there?

We know you weren’t worried, but there’s gonna be plenty of Jennifer Lawrence to enjoy after you see Mockingjay Part 2. She’s re-teamed with her American Hustle director, David O. Russell, and her Silver Linings Playbook co-star, Bradley Cooper in the film, Joy, which is set for release on Christmas. Check out the new trailer above!

Here’s the official synopsis:

JOY is 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. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.

I’ve gotta say, this film looks badass, and I’m thrilled to see JLaw take on yet another meaty, nuanced role. And maybe it’s the Christmas release date, but it kinda felt like a wackier, weirder, modern It’s a Wonderful Life with Lawrence as George Bailey.

But what really got me was this bit of dialogue from the trailer:

Now you listen to me. I’ll tell you what’s gonna come of you. You are gonna grow up, and be a strong, smart young woman. Go to school, meet a fine young man, have beautiful children of your own, and you’re gonna build wonderful things. And that is what’s gonna happen to you.

So wait, it’s not either or? I can fall in love and meet a fine young man and have kids and be strong and smart and build things? Sign me up!

What do you all think of the Joy trailer?
