Is Chris Tucker about to star in a Best Picture winner? That's the main takeaway we got from a quartet of new TV spots for "Silver Linings Playbook," the new comedy-drama for David O. Russell. Tucker hasn't appeared in a film without the words 'Hour' and 'Rush' in the title since 1997's "Jackie Brown," but he's chosen a pretty good time to come back, with Russell's film having been touted for awards galore since it premiered at TIFF back in September.

Is Chris Tucker about to star in a Best Picture winner? That's the main takeaway we got from a quartet of new TV spots for "Silver Linings Playbook," the new comedy-drama for David O. Russell. Tucker hasn't appeared in a film without the words 'Hour' and 'Rush' in the title since 1997's "Jackie Brown," but he's chosen a pretty good project to come back, with Russell's film having been touted for awards galore since it premiered at TIFF back in September.

Tucker is only a small part of the spots (and the film), with the emphasis naturally landing on leads Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. It's mostly the same sort of footage you've seen before, but if you want to be able to see it in smaller 30 second snippets, check them out below. "Silver Linings Playbook" opens in limited release on November 16th, before going wide on November 21st.
