WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper Star in the Joy Movie Trailer (VIDEO)

By  | 

Recently, Jennifer Lawrence made headlines for speaking out about the blatant gender wage gap in Hollywood. Even though she’s one of the most sought-after stars in the world, she still doesn’t get paid as much as her male co-stars. What. The. Eff?!

So, we somehow think the release of the full-length trailer for Joy, a movie all about J.Law’s character rising above her housewife expectations, was timed very strategically. Here’s the film’s official summary.

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. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

While Joy is clearly set 20+ years in the past, the issues involved are unfortunately still the same. Check out the full trailer above and be sure to catch J.Law & Bradley Cooper’s latest collaboration on December 25th.
