Joy Be a Lady

And we have us a first teaser for Jennifer Lawrences next serving of Oscar bait.

Directed by American Hustles David O. Russell, here comes Joythe story of Joy Mangano, the Long Island single mom who invented the Miracle Mop.

The film – which chronicles Mangano’s life from the ages of 10 to 40 – co-stars Édgar Ramírez as Joy’s cheatin’ (first?) husband, Robert De Niro as her father, and Bradley Cooper as a later-in-life love interest, plus Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, and Isabella Rossellini in supporting roles, one whom (if not all), I’ll bet, will be instrumental in her rise to entrepreneurial glory.

Joy will open, appropriately-ish enough, on Christmas Day. But don’t be fooled: This won’t be all mops and roses. A shotgun will be involved.
