The first trailer for David O. Russell's potential Oscar contender, "Silver Linings Playbook" makes its debut, with Bradley Cooper starring as a former teacher fresh off a four-year stint in a mental institution, who moves back in with his parents (Jackie Weaver and Robert De Niro). He starts up a "friend with a capital F" relationship with equally unstable neighbor played by Jennifer Lawrence.

Both Lawrence and Cooper, who also star together in Susanne Bier's period drama "Serena" (currently in post), look to be in good form in this adaptation of Matthew Quick's novel. But the trailer doesn't pack the punch of Russell's 2011 awards player "The Fighter."

The Weinstein Co. releases "Silver Linings Playbook" November 21.
