Title: Burnt Director: John Wells Starring: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Omar Sy, Matthew Rhys, Alicia Vikander, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lily James. Despite the initial intriguing premise of a villainous protagonist, ‘Burnt’ turns out to be a recipe for disaster. And John Wells’ half-baked idea turns sour. The story is about a tormented Chef: Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all and lost it. The former Enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene had earned two Michelin stars and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive star, Jones will need to leave his bad habits [ Read More ]

Bradley Cooper has certainly proven his acting chops and portrayed some very memorable characters throughout the course of his thriving career, in some of which he led his infamous wolfpack to Vegas, played a financial wizard, a famous sniper, a bi-polar teacher, and an over-ambitious FBI agent. In his next film Burnt, he sucessfully and bravely takes on the role of a talented, yet deeply troubled, yet determined Michelin star chef. As if his fans needed any more reason to be smitten, he not only oozes charm, but the sexy actor also speaks French, is an advocate for wage equality for women and can cook too. Yes, please!
Starring alongside Sienna Miller, Daniel Bruhl, Sam Keeley, Uma Thurman, Matthew Rhys and Emma Thompson, Bradley shines in this role, as he must make peace with a dark past and endless burnt bridges (no pun intended) and redeem himself. The star studded cast, »

Directed by John Wells
Much like its truculent hero, Burnt is difficult to tolerate at times. Nothing about director John Wells’ redemptive tale about a burned-out chef is particularly noteworthy, but the pacing and performances keep things humming along nicely. Sure, it’s packed with fast food self-realizations, but it’s also an appetizing glimpse into the high-pressure world of fine cuisine. Ultimately, Burnt re-mixes the ingredients of a familiar recipe into an unapologetic crowd-pleaser.
While Jon Favreau’s Chef gave the meat-and-potatoes crowd something to drool over in 2014, Burnt will have culinary snobs reaching for their Gold Cards this season. There are plenty of montages featuring beautiful food being prepared in ridiculously-elaborate ways. Mostly, John Wells (The Company Men, August: Osage County) takes us into the kitchen to watch the huge egos behind these tiny morsels.
Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) was a cocky »

Bradley Cooper took method acting to an extreme with his last movie. The actor co-stars in the new film Burnt, alongside Matthew Rhys, which tells the story of troubled chef (Cooper) who tries to get his life back on track with the help of becoming a notable name in his craft. However, there are definite hardships along that journey, and Cooper's character gets to the point where he [Spoiler Alert!] attempts suicide. This controversial scene became a topic of discussion when Rhys, who plays a frenemy chef with the three-star Michelin rating and appears in the scene with Cooper, stopped by Fox 5's Good Day New York today to promote the movie, primarily because Bradley literally put his life in »
"You lack arrogance," enfant terrible Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) accuses Dan (Sam Keeley), a talented but unseasoned London chef, in the opening stages of "Burnt." What works in Jones' soon-to-open upscale restaurant, however, is also what sinks director John Wells' ghastly fine-dining drama, the arrogance of which is wholly unearned. Rather, "Burnt" mimics the worst imaginable kitchen disaster: acrid in the beginning, sickly sweet at the end, and overdone all the way through. Jones, a former junkie "washed up" in New Orleans after achieving culinary stardom in Paris years before, is an insufferable prick, and not a particularly interesting one. Raging against his staff (including Omar Sy and love interest Sienna Miller), his preening rival (Matthew Rhys), his only friend, Tony (Daniel Brühl), and the injustice of imperfection itself, he's more caricature than character—a cross between the Gordon Ramsay of "Hell's »

Ahead of its Us release this Friday the final trailer has arrived online for John Wells’ culinary comedy Burnt which sees Bradley Cooper leading a cast that also includes Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Bruhl, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander and Emma Thompson. You can check it out below after the official synopsis…
Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Burnt is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, »

Last year’s Chef, a studio system palate cleanser for director Jon Favreau, was the exact sort of oddball creation you’d expect to find in a food truck. Thinly veiled in its metaphor and debatably vain as it was, Chef caught on with moviegoers because Favreau’s passion project had the necessary ingredients to deserve such a branding (sweetness and enthusiasm will excuse a lot of aimless self-indulgence). Thanks to Burnt, the new Bradley Cooper-starring culinary drama, Favreau’s willingness to go off-menu now looks all the more appetizing in retrospect. The alternative for film-loving foodies, it would seem, is factory processed junk food that has all the zest and inspiration of spam by candlelight.
The better comparison point for Burnt is its holdover competition, Steve Jobs, a silver-tongued portrait of creative genius that crackles with flavor, even when pulling a lot of punches. Burnt, by contrast, is »

During the worst of his many plate-smashing temper tantrums, Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper), self-styled bad boy of the London culinary world, scolds his fellow chefs for not meeting his brutally exacting standards: “If it’s not perfect, you throw it away!” Applying that logic, we would have to dispense entirely with “Burnt,” a moody-foodie therapy session that follows an increasingly tidy narrative recipe as it sets this one-man kitchen nightmare on a long road to redemption. Although John Wells’ dramedy is energized by its mouth-watering montages and an unsurprisingly fierce lead turn from Cooper, Steven Knight’s script pours on the acid but holds the depth, forcing its fine actors (including Sienna Miller and Daniel Bruhl) to function less as an ensemble than as a motley sort of intervention group. Unlikely to capitalize on its once-rumored awards prospects or match “Chef’s” indie-breakout status, the Weinstein Co.’s Oct. 30 release »

The stars of the upcoming culinary comedy-drama “Burnt” proved that it was even hotter on the red carpet than it was in the kitchen on Tuesday. Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Uma Thurman were among the movie’s cast at the premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The Hollywood A-listers were joined by James Lipton, Kathleen Turner, Josh Lucas, Helena Christensen, Beth Stern, Christopher Lloyd, and “Burnt” co-stars Daniel Bruhl and Matthew Rhys.

The plans for a limited release in New York and Los Angeles had been announced by TWC on Oct. 7.
“Burnt” is directed by John Wells from Steven Knight’s script about a chef who needs to leave his bad habits behind in order to earn a three-star Michelin rating. Stacy Sher, Michael Shamberg and Erwin Stoff are producing.

Over the past half decade or so, Bradley Cooper has gone from an up and coming supporting player to one of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers. Right now, he’s a huge movie star, one who is a favorite of both Academy members as well as theater goers. With the release starting this week of his new star vehicle Burnt, I wanted to discuss that flick as well as his standing in the industry currently. Cooper is as big an A-list actor as anyone in the business, so I’m sure this won’t be the last time we discuss him. If this new film does well, we may even be talking about him as an Oscar nominee once again. The movie in question is a culinary drama starring Cooper as chef Adam Jones, who was once a rising star in the kitchen but flamed out, partially due to bad behavior »

Matthew Rhys’ Gruffudd may speak the truth in an exclusive preview from this Tuesday’s installment of The Bastard Executioner (10/9c on FX), but that’s not particularly reassuring for Wilkin Brattle, who’s more concerned for the long-term well-being of Baroness Love than he is his own immediate safety.

Cooper stars as "arrogant prick" Adam Jones, a Parisian chef whose bad habits and out-of-control behavior cost him his lauded restaurant. After cleaning up and returning to Paris sober, Jones tries to redeem himself by launching a new restaurant with a hand-picked group of cooks, all in an attempt to gain three Michelin stars, one of the biggest honors in the business. The film was written by "Locke" scribe Steven Knight and co-stars Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys and Uma Thurman. "Burnt" opens in theaters October 23.

Burnt, which hits on October 23rd, has an uphill battle when it comes to getting extra seats filled upon release. While the food genre is on the upswing generally, and Bradley Cooper is in a very good place to draw a crowd right now, this isn’t a film that easily persuades the maybes.
In an interesting twist of marketing, the film has released three clips that hope to show off the multi-faceted character that is Adam Jones. He’s a very dedicated and dictatorial chef when he’s in the kitchen, an irresistibly charming smile when out on the street, and rather smug for someone who took a huge fall when mingling with the culinary community at large.
The question is, does any of this help you decide that you need to see it?
The trick is that this is a film that needs you to like a fairly unlikable character, »
