If seeing Bradley Cooper back in chef’s whites gives you nostalgic feelings for defunct 2005 sitcom Kitchen Confidential well… You’re probably in a small group. But you might be happy to see him cooking up chaos again in this first trailer for Burnt. Cooper plays Adam Jones (after whom the film was originally named, a switch from Chef, dictated thanks to Jon Favreau’s comedy), who left high school at 16 and headed to Paris to learn the culinary arts. He was a quick study and something of a sensation. But all that sudden success went directly to his ego, and that, in turn, sent him down the path of excess, drinking, drugs and overall debauchery that ruined his reputation.Now, though, he’s looking to rebuild and has his eye on opening his own restaurant in London, with hopes he can score those all important Michelin Guide stars. But »
Ten years after Kitchen Confidential, Bradley Cooper is getting back into the kitchen with Burnt. Directed by John Wells, the new film follows a gifted chef named Adam Jones who shot to fame at a young age… and then lost everything he had thanks to his out-of-control behavior and crippling drug addiction. In an effort to […]

The first trailer for the movie, which was originally called “Chef” then changed to “Adam Jones” before taking on the current title, shows Cooper’s hard-edged, renowned restauranteur striving for perfection.
“I don’t want my restaurant to be a place where you come and eat,” he says in the food porn-heavy trailer, which debuted on Yahoo Movies. “I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing.”
After destroying his career with his arrogance and drug use, his character Adam Jones turns a new leaf and returns to London to open a restaurant that will ultimately earn three Michelin stars.
“Maybe I just wanted it really badly, and when I got it, I didn’t know how to hold onto it,” he says.

In the new trailer for the drama, Cooper plays Adam Jones, a bad-boy chef with two Michelin stars. His temper and drug problem cause him to lose everything, but now he's back to open his own restaurant, get that third Michelin star, and gain the glory he's sought his entire life.
"The kitchen's the only place I've ever felt like I belonged," he says. "I love every minute of it - the heat, the pressure, the violence."
The story sounds a lot like that of Anthony Bourdain, one-time bad-boy chef who wrote about his experiences in a book called "Kitchen Confidential," that was then turned into a short-lived TV show of the same way. Which Cooper starred in. So, he had some experience for this movie.

When we look back on all of the great American Presidents of the past, one can’t help but wonder about their lives and what they are really like behind their exterior. What lessons did they learn that would make them capable of leading a nation? What if we could see those moments that would inform the kind of President they would become? What if we could watch their life happen with the hindsight of »

The Weinstein Co.’s Cannes presentation is always an early launching pad for fall awards season. But on Thursday afternoon at the Majestic Hotel, Harvey Weinstein actually started handicapping the 2016 Oscars race from the South of France.
Joined by Jake Gyllenhaal onstage, Weinstein said it was an outrage that the star was snubbed for his performance in “Nightcrawler,” which was released by Open Road Films last fall. “We’ll get revenge,” Weinstein said. “This transformation in ‘Southpaw’ is amazing,” Weinstein added about the upcoming summer movie directed by Antoine Fuqua, where Gyllenhaal plays a professional boxer. Weinstein revealed that “Southpaw” had been selected for Cannes, but it couldn’t play in competition because Gyllenhaal is a member of the jury.

It’s not every TV spin-off that can claim to be a direct continuation of the movie before it, but the Limitless-spawned show set to debut this autumn in the States apparently can. The series has secured the services of Bradley Cooper, who starred in the 2011 thriller. Given his increasingly busy film schedule – he hasn’t been a regular lead on a TV show since the days of Alias and the sadly short-lived Kitchen Confidential – Cooper won’t be in every episode. He’s scheduled for recurring appearances (probably four or five in the first season) reprising his film role as Edward Morra. The show will actually focus on Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the mysterious, brain-boosting powers of the Nzt drug and is then roped into solving complex cases for the FBI. Yet unknown to his law enforcement bosses, he’s also being influenced by Morra, who »

There was a lot of drinking last night on the Kitchen Confidential author's latest season premiere on CNN, and today brought a bit of a ratings reality check both for Anthony Bourdain and his lead-out about pothead profit seekers. With a trip to South Korea as its Season 5 opener, Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown snagged 575,000 total viewers with 301,000 among the news demo of adults 25-54 at 9Pm. While down 34% in total viewers from the audience that time-slot rival Fox… »
The vast column inches and pixels dedicated to Clint Eastwood's American Sniper of late may have questioned its celebratory portrayal of a man who took hundreds of lives and how it racked up an astonishing $90 million box office debut, but one aspect of the film's fallout has been overlooked entirely: Bradley Cooper is now a bona fide A-list movie star.
American Sniper's financial records keep stacking up. Best ever three-day opening for a Best Picture Oscar nominee, biggest ever January opening, an IMAX bow that beats 2012 blockbuster Prometheus and a career best for its 84-year-old director.
All this is vindication for Cooper, who picked up the film rights to Navy Seal sharp-shooter Chris Kyle's memoir in 2012 with a view to producing a film starring Chris Pratt in the lead role. Warner Bros backed the project on the proviso that Cooper himself play Kyle, while the star's Silver Linings Playbook »
