Never underestimate a man with everything to lose. On behalf of The Weinstein Company, check out the official trailer for Burnt, which opens in theaters nationwide this fall! John Wells takes the helm on this comedic drama, a man best known for last year's August: Osage County and the cult hit The Company Men. Bradley Cooper leads this story of a burnt out chef looking for redemption, and is followed by an amazing ensemble that includes Sienna Miller, Jamie Dornan, Daniel Brühl, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson.
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, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.
Bradley Cooper is coming off the enormous success of last year's American Sniper, which became one of 2014's biggest blockbusters and continued making bank at the box office well into the first part of 2015. He also just finished a run on Broadway as the iconic Elephant Man. He can currently be seen reprising his role as a closeted summer camp counsilor on the Netflix comedy series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.
Bradley Cooper had to learn some new and very important life skills for his performance in Burnt. At 40 years old, the actor is moving into the kitchen, where he had to learn the ends and outs of cooking and preparing 5 star meals, and the trials and tribulations that come along with that. He fully embraced the chef-world to become Adam Jones. And Yahoo! Movies has our first taste of this delicious dish.
In Burnt, Chef Jones is an ambitious American who decides to bail on high school and move to Paris. At the tender age of 16, he learns the culinary arts to become one of the best in his trade. The man is a world sensation, and sought out by the most wealthy of clients. He is also very troubled, torpedoing his career with a dash of arrogance and a heaping pocket full of drugs. There's no pinch when it comes to his substance abuse, which brings an overpowering taste to the once great food artist. And no one can stomach it. About his bad boy ways, Adam Jones bold states the following.
"Maybe I just wanted it really badly, and when I got it, I didn't know how to hold onto it."
Jones eventually decides to clean up his act and move to London, ready to start his own restaurant. He sets out to attempt to earn the coveted three Michelin Guide stars, the pinnacle of culinary glory. But will his suave ways land Jones back at the top of the foodie chain? Dip your finger in and take a taste. Then prepare to stay hungry until this October, when Burnt opens in theaters nationwide.
