Joy trailer: Jennifer Lawrence reunites with David O. Russell as a home shopping entrepreneur

Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, and director David O. Russell have teamed up for another film. Joy, Russell's follow-up to American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook, is inspired by the tale of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano. The first teaser trailer is available above.

For longtime fans of Russell's work, there's reason to be excited: Joy looks weird. Not as weird as I Heart Huckabees, but closer to Three Kings and Flirting With Disaster. Many fans of those early films, myself included, have hoped the director would return to stranger stories; this might be that film.

Joy arrives in theaters on Christmas Day.
