Serena (2014) Trailer

The trailer for Serena has been released online, reuniting Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for the third time on screen after American Hustle (and as love interests for the second time following Silver Linings Playbook).

The plot goes like this:

The film follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. But when Serena learns that she can never bear a child, she sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son before his marriage. And when she starts to suspect that George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertons’ intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning.

The supporting cast include Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris and Toby Jones.

Directed by Susanne Bier, Serena is due to premiere at The London Film Festival and released in the UK on October 24, 2014. The film will be released in France on November 12, Australia on November 27, and Germany on December 18. No USA release date information is available at the moment.
