Has the soufflé already caved on “Burnt“? It can’t be the best sign of confidence in the movie when the usually promo happy Harvey Weinstein declines to show the star-studded drama to a festival audience. There is a sense that the picture is something of an afterthought on The Weinstein Company slate this fall behind “Carol,” “The Hateful Eight,” and “Macbeth.” But yes, the cooking world drama is coming and a new international trailer has arrived.
Bradley Cooper leads the movie as celebrated chef Adam Jones, a man passionate about food, but also riddled with no shortage of demons. And the movie written by Stephen Knight (“Locke,” “Eastern Promises“) and directed by John Wells (“The Company Men,” “August: Osage County“) will tell the story of the rock star chef who is driven to the edge chasing his third Michelin star.
Co-starring Alicia Vikander, Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Bruhl, Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson and Lily James, “Burnt” opens on October 23rd.
