Move over, Stars Wars VII: The Force Awakens. There’s another big Hollywood blockbuster dropping this December.
Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, launches on Christmas Day.
What makes Joy of particular interest to Wilmington residents is that some of the film was shot in town, including in a home on Federal Street, on a sound stage on Ballardvale Street, and in the Wildwood Cemetery.
The film’s first trailer was just released yesterday. Watch it below:
Here’s the film’s “official description:”
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. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Here is Wilmington Apple’s Question of the Day for July 16: After viewing the trailer and reading the description, do you plan on seeing ‘Joy’ in the theaters?
