The Weinstein Company has today released a second trailer for Burnt, the upcoming drama from director John Wells (August: Osage County) which was written by Steven Knight (Locke) and Michael Kalesniko (Iron Sky). That’s an impressive team right there, and just as amazing is the cast of actors who have been assembled for the movie, which revolves around a once famous chef struggling to fight his way back to the top.
Bradley Cooper takes on the lead role and will be joined in Burnt by Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman, and Emma Thompson (it was recently revealed that Jamie Dornan has unfortunately been cut).
In case you missed the first trailer and aren’t sure what to expect from Burnt, here’s the official synopsis:
Chef Adam Jones 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. Burnt is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.
Sounds pretty good, right? Whether Burnt is going to be Oscars contender remains to be seen, but we’ll get a better idea when the movie is released on October 23rd, later this year.
