The Words, Bradley Cooper, Zooey Saldana

While it sounds decent on paper what with the cast and all,  Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde, we can't say we're entirely convinced of this new trailer for "The Words." It probably doesn't help that we didn't give this one a particularly enthusiastic review when we saw it at Sundance earlier this year. It's been called both a drama and a thriller and it's about a writer at the peak of his literary success discovers the steep price he must pay for stealing another man's work. The official synopsis is here, which we didn't plagiarize and instead simply copied and pasted from a press release (same thing?).

The layered romantic drama 'The Words' follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There's only one catch - he didn't write it. As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man's work, and for placing ambition and success above life's most fundamental three words.

Co-starring Dennis Quaid, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons and Ben Barnes CBS Films releases "The Words" on September 21.Maybe you'll feel different about it.

    Terri, I agree 100%...I think he can still do it. He's done two films with DeNiro, and I hope he doesn't start starring with him more and using him as a crtuch. Limitless was good, but he didn't OWN that rold. Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, Shaia LeBeouf all could have played that part!

    I have no desire to see anything with Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde. Two of the most boring, overexposed actors going.

    I hope they're good. Cooper has yet to deliver one really memorable performance.

    I have a desire to see him next in David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook and Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond the Pines.
