Blunt Predictions Presents: Joy (Trailer #2)

Release date – January 2016

In terms of narrative I admit this looks interesting, however when you note the time of year and names credited it becomes apparent that this is essentially Oscar bait. When David O. Russell writes and directs a film starring Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, it obviously won’t be a hit with mainstream audiences, but it will please the Academy, much like American Hustle. Although Jennifer Lawrence does look as though she is giving a brilliant performance, I fear this film is just another opportunity for the Academy to crawl up her arse, without offering anything new.
