Bradley Cooper does his best to stand the heat in official trailer for Burnt


The first full-length trailer for Burnt debuted way back in August, and it struck a pretty serious tone for a film being billed as a comedy. Released yesterday, the official trailer for the film whips up a bit more levity — it also manages to squeeze two different Star Wars references into the space of two minutes. Impressive, most impressive.

As we quickly learn, Super-Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is either the Luke Skywalker or the Darth Vader of cooking, depending on whom you ask … or what mood he happens to be in. The mercurial culinary prodigy is as reckless and abrasive as he is talented and charming, and we can see that his self-destructive streak is his biggest roadblock on the path to professional renown.

While both provide a healthy helping of mouth-watering food porn, this is a more impressive trailer than the first. By combining equal measures of comedy, drama, and sexual tension, the spot makes for a tantalizing appetizer to the main course, which will arrive hot from the kitchen on Oct. 23.

Annnnd now we’re hungry. Damn food metaphors.

The film also stars Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Omar Sy (Intouchables), and Uma Thurman. Check out the official synopsis below:

Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all — and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Burnt is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.

While we’re not totally sold, this latest trailer has us intrigued. The film seems to have all the right ingredients but — as any chef worth his/her salt knows — it’s the way the ingredients come together that makes or breaks a dish.

This forgotten 2009 movie is a modern horror classic. Here’s why you should watch it (if you can)
Alison Lohman stands in an open grave in Drag Me to Hell.

Sam Raimi's output over the past 20 years has been disappointingly small. Throughout the 1980s and early '90s, Raimi established himself as one of the most distinct artistic voices of his generation. With films like Evil Dead II, Darkman, and Army of Darkness, he combined his independent filmmaking roots with his uniquely goofy, acidic sense of humor to deliver horror and blockbuster experiences that are as confidently stylish as they are mind-bogglingly ludricous. In the late '90s, he proved himself as a filmmaker capable of making award-worthy genre fare (A Simple Plan) and working with bona fide movie stars (Sharon Stone in The Quick and the Dead) before becoming a beloved household name by directing 2002's Spider-Man and its sequel, 2004's Spider-Man 2.

In the years since his artistically compromised Spider-Man 3 hit theaters in 2007, though, Raimi has more or less faded away from the mainstream consciousness. He's only directed a few films since Spider-Man 3, including the ambitious, but disappointing Oz: The Great and Powerful and 2022's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which he seemingly did as a favor to Marvel Studios. That said, between Spider-Man 3 and Oz: The Great and Powerful, Raimi did direct the underrated 2009 spine-chiller Drag Me to Hell.
