David O. Russell’s next film, Silver Linings Playbook starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, and Jacki Weaver, is set to have its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this month. The poster has just dropped showcasing the half-faces of hearthrobs Jen and Brad (isn’t that a throwback, eh?).
While many pundits, including myself, have backed off the film as far as Oscar prospects are concerned, the film could still surprise in a big way and get lots of people on board especially for Lead Actor hopeful Bradley Cooper. Jennifer Lawrence will be competing in a weak category but also has herself as competition for the Spring hit, The Hunger Games. There is still some hope for her with Lionsgate putting a lot of emphasis and push for her.
Check out the full poster after the jump and discuss your thoughts on its Oscar chances.
