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.

Google has announced several new features in Google Maps to keep you sane this holiday season by helping you avoid crowds, find your way around the malls, and even get your holiday dinner shopping done.

First off, Google is expanding its crowdedness data features for public transit and specific stores into a broader tool that it's calling "Area Busyness." This will show you how many folks are gathering in a specific neighborhood, rather than an individual store. As Google explains, you can use this information however you like, whether you want to steer clear of the crowds or seek out the hottest spots in town.
