20th Century Fox has released a one minute TV Spot for "Joy" starring Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco.
Film is directed and written by David O. Russell
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.

The film started showing to critics this past weekend and seems to be getting some good buzz. Now they're reading to roll it out to the public coming up this Christmas. Still interested?

Something has to change for Joy.
The new teaser trailers for David O. Russell’s latest film gives us further insight into the state of Joy’s (Jennifer Lawrence) life—that she’s in debt, living with her parents and her ex-husband, and hates her job. If anyone can turn this around, it’d be a character portrayed by Lawrence, who is the fiercest young actress in the business.
The film details the true story of Joy, the woman who created the miracle mop, and the truly miraculous way that she turned her life around. Lawrence is reunited with Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, making Joy highly likely to not just be a stellar film, but another winner for O. Russell.
The marketing team behind Joy surely knows how to get us excited—the trailers alone have been chill-inducing, promising a powerful story of redemption »

Russell and Jennifer Lawrence team up, and such should be the case with their upcoming comedy-drama "Joy."

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.

Juggling three children, a dead-end job and what is possibly one of the least desirable living situations imaginable – divorced parents, a poorly grandmother and an old flame all under the one roof – it’s little wonder that Jennifer Lawrence’s Joy calls time for a change. Headlining David O. Russell’s Oscar-tipped drama as the ambitious Miss. Mangano, Lawrence is poised to embark on a true rags-to-riches tale late this year, as the film charts Mangano’s prodigious rise into one of the most successful self-starting entrepreneurs in modern history.
Bundling together all of the Oscar tropes one would expect, it’s little wonder why both O. Russell and Lawrence continue to crop up in conversation as we inch ever closer to awards season. It isn’t the first time that the duo have flirted with cinema’s greatest accolades either, with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle both finding success in recent years. »

Mockingjay – Part 2 is now outpacing previous episode in dystopian saga after posting a huge Thanksgiving total, as Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur and boxing drama Creed open in second and third
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 held on to the top spot at the Us box office at the weekend after posting a spectacular $75.8m (£50.5m) over the long Thanksgiving holiday week. Two new films, Pixar animation The Good Dinosaur and Rocky spin-off Creed, also did well, with bows of $55.6m and $42.6m in second and third place respectively over the past week.
The final Hunger Games movie has now posted $198.3m in North America in just two weeks, and is running ahead of its predecessor (final total $337.1m) at the world’s largest box office. This is something of a turnaround, as its opening haul had come in behind that of Mockingjay – Part 1 during the same period last year. »

Another year, another David O. Russell movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. This time, the weight of Joy falls squarely on Jennifer Lawrence's $20 million shoulders, as she plays the lead character, Joy Mangano, Long Island mom and inventor of the Miracle Mop — an ingenious product that made her a millionaire many times over. Bradley Cooper plays an executive at Hsn and Robert De Niro plays Joy's father. The film opens on Christmas Day, when it will ask Santa for all of the Oscar nominations. Until then, you have the full-length trailer (above) to tide you over.With the initial trailer you have lots of Jennifer Lawrence, and even more self-made entrepreneurship! Alongside J.Law's Nightline interview, Fox released a brand-new clip, which essentially features Joy dropping 100 mics on the head of Bradley Cooper's character — and then his best impression of the hushed emoji: As Joy starts »

Whenever a franchise offers up its last installment, it’s a bittersweet moment. Fans gather to rejoice in the completion of a story while also mourning this last momentous occasion shared this way. “Mockingjay Part 2” marks the end of “The Hunger Games” as a theater experience.
Fans are going to the movie, it’s currently winning the box office race, but compared to the previous movies, it’s not grossing as highly as the others. It’s not for lack of quality, nor for lack of excitement on the part of fans. Thanksgiving weekend isn’t quite over, and I think surprises are still in store with regard to those numbers.
Certainly, there are going to be people who won’t want to go see “Mockingjay Part 2” right away because they know you can only see it for the first time once. It’s the kind of movie you need »
Forget turkey, stuffing, and those weird, amorphous, giggly piles of canned cranberry sauce that your mom continues to put out every year even though no one likes it: This Thanksgiving weekend, moviegoers feasted on Mockingjays and Dinosaurs. Also a boxing movie, but it sounds kind of weird saying moviegoers feasted on boxers. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay— Part 2, the final installment in the massive movie series that certified Jennifer Lawrence's universal box office appeal, finished in first for the second straight week, earning $51.6 million for a $198.3 million cume. Pixar's The Good Dinosaur nom-nom-nomed $39.1 million in its first week for a second place finish, while the acclaimed Creed slugged moviegoers for $30.1 million. Spectre made $12.8 million in its third week for a $176 million domestic cume; it's slightly under-performed in the Us, but is about to break $750 million worldwide, which ain't too bad.

With Trumbo, Spotlight and Brooklyn expanding to more theaters this past weekend, it’s safe to say that awards season is in full swing, and there will only be more potential Oscar contenders hitting theaters in December.

The last few year-end big-movie guns are finally screening. "The Revenant" (Fox/New Regency) has pushed Leonardo DiCaprio to the front of the Best Actor race, while Thanksgiving critical and box-office hit "Creed" (Warner Bros./MGM) provides a major comeback scenario for the creator of Rocky Balboa, Sly Stallone, as a supporting actor contender. Now "Joy" (Fox 2000/Annapurna) has screened for awards voters in New York and Los Angeles on the post-Thanksgiving weekend, with a simulcast Q & A out of New York with writer-director David O. Russell, making a bid for his third Best Picture contender in a row, his usual team of thrice nominated Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper and veteran Oscar-winner Robert De Niro (nominated most recently for "Silver Linings Playbook"), plus newbies Isabella Rossellini, Edgar Ramirez and Dascha Polanco. (A Bp slot would mark Russell's fourth total, including "The Fighter," "Silver Linings »

When Carey Mulligan first heard of the movie Suffragette, she dismissed it. Speaking with Deadline, she said, "I naively had this idea it was tea-drinking ladies chatting, but by page three I was so invested and shocked by all the things that these women did." She went on to star in the film, which has incited conversations on labels and what "feminism" means in 2015: "I’ve been between America and London [promoting the movie] and I don’t think the definition of feminism is different between the two locations. Recently, it has felt like a new word… People are afraid of labels and I think this year they’re starting to reclaim what the word originally meant, in a positive way that’s interesting."She was, of course, also asked about Jennifer Lawrence's "pay gap platform": How did Jennifer Lawrence’s statement on the discrepancy in pay between male and female actors resonate with you? »
