Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are quickly becoming the Burns and Allen of this decade, having already appeared in three movies together. Their fourth will be the autobiographical drama Joy, which gets its first trailer today. The film is not only noteworthy for once again pairing two of today's biggest stars. It also marks the third collaboration between the pair, co-star Robert De Niro, and director 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.Read More
Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips' 22 Green Production company is teaming up with Andrew Lazar and Warner Bros. to produce Ghost Army. The studio has acquired the rights to Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles' non-fiction book The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery, which was published in April by Princeton Architectural Press. The adaptation will also use Rick Beyer's 2013 PBS documentary Ghost Army as a source for this project.
The story follows a secret U.S. Army unit, comprised of recruits from art schools, advertising agencies and other creative businesses, who were tasked with finding ways of tricking the Nazi army into believing that the U.S. had more troops than they really did. They used everything from inflatable tanks, mixed in with actual tanks, to dummy soldiers that would be spotted by German spy planes and delivering fake radio messages for the enemy to intercept, that left them confused about where they should attack next. Their efforts were credited with saving tens of thousands of lives, and there is currently an ongoing effort to have the entire squad awarded with the Congressional Medal of Honor, after their story was kept secret for more than 40 years after the war ended. Fashion icon Bill Blass was one of the members of this unit.Read More
Bradley Cooper gets ready to cook up a storm in the first poster for the upcoming Adam Jones, which has been set for release on October 2. The comedy was previously known as Chef, although Jon Favreau's 2014 comedy Chef likely caused this project to switch titles. Adam Jones will be going up against Focus Features' London Has Fallen, 20th Century Fox's Victor Frankenstein and TriStar's The Walk on October 2.
The story centers on Bradley Cooper's title character, a chef who tries to assemble the perfect crew to put together the greatest restaurant the world has ever seen. Adam Jones will be the actor's third movie released in 2015, following the indie Serena with Jennifer Lawrence and director Cameron Crowe's upcoming Aloha with Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams, arriving in theaters May 29. The actor has received Oscar nominations for the past three years in a row, for his work on Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and last year's American Sniper, so it's possible that he could get a fourth nomination in a row for Adam Jones.Read More
Earlier today, we reported that CBS' new series Limitless features Bradley Cooper in a recurring role, with the actor reprising his character of Edward Mora from the 2011 Limitless movie. The network has now released the first trailer for this upcoming Limitless TV series, featuring Mora interacting with a young man named Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), as we see how the wonder drug NZT gives him incredible abilities. The series takes a new turn, though, with Brian being tasked into working with the FBI to use his NZT-enhanced powers for good.
Based on the feature film, Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca's confidante. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen "Naz" Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a canny manipulator of the reins of power.Read More
When CBS issued a series order for Limitless last week, the network revealed some of the confirmed cast members, but, as it turns out, not all of them. During the network's upfront presentation earlier today, it was revealed that Bradley Cooper, who starred in the original 2011 Limitless movie, will reprise his role as Edward Mora, who is now a Senator. The actor will have a recurring role on the series, and while it isn't clear how many episodes he will star in, Mora will have a connection to the main character Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman. Take a look at the official synopsis for the Limitless TV series below.
Based on the feature film, Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.

They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen "Naz" Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a canny manipulator of the reins of power. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, recurring), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal's worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.Read More
