Watch: Bradley Cooper Wants to Run the World’s Best Restaurant in First Full Trailer for ‘Burnt’


Bradley Cooper in Burnt
The Weinstein Co.

Burnt, John Wells‘ chef drama starring Bradley Cooper, but today we get more than just an amuse-bouche as The Weinstein Co. has released the full trailer for the film ahead of its October 23 release. One thing I can say right off the bat: if you haven’t already eaten today this trailer just might bring you to a breaking point.

A story about the love of food, the love between two people and the power of second chances, Burnt stars Cooper as Adam Jones, a two-star Michelin chef who had it all — and lost it. Now seeking redemption in the form of his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star, he’ll need the best of the best on his side from a cast that features Sienna Miller, Daniel Brühl, Emma Thompson, Omar Sy, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Jamie Dornan and Lily James.

After glimpsing the trailer I can’t help but notice the film comes off a bit like a dramatic version of Jon Favreau‘s Chef, though as a fan of Chef that comparison definitely doesn’t turn me off. Cooper looks great here alongside the likes of Miller, Thompson and Brühl, and I generally enjoyed Wells’ last outing, August: Osage County, so I’m intrigued to find out if Burnt satisfies my appetite. I do my best to avoid trailers but I did watch this one, and compared to others I’ve seen recently it looks quite good.
