WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence Meeting Bill Murray Is the Purest Expression of Joy in This World

While it's not known who Cooper or De Niro are portraying just yet, the trailer is Russell-esque in its series of quick scenes to the tune of The Rolling Stones' 1969 hit "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Lawrence and Cooper have starred in four movies together and three of those have been O'Russell films. It's no wonder they keep working with the director as his movies are big hits come award season.
