Playing Jennifer Lawrence Reunites With Bradley Cooper in 'Joy' -- And She's Got a Gun!

Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro are together again for another film directed by David O. Russell.

If you like Russell movies (American Hustle, The Fighter), you're going to love this trailer.

Lawrence takes on the lead role of Joy, a housewife who rises to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty. "Don't ever think that the world owes you anything, because it doesn't," the 24-year-old actress is heard saying.

While it's not known who Cooper or De Niro are portraying just yet, the trailer is Russell-esque in its series of quick scenes to the tune of the Rolling Stones' 1969 hit "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Lawrence and Cooper have starred in four movies together and three of those have been Russell films. It's no wonder they keep working with the director as his movies are big hits come award season.
