CBS Films have released a second, brief trailer for Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal‘s The Words, a drama about the perils of plagiarism. The picture, sees Bradley Cooper play a struggling writer who, upon discovering a lost manuscript, deems it his own and learns… again, the perils of plagiarism.
The first preview showed something a bit stranger than that meager description would have you expecting. Our own (positive) review called it a puzzle, and that’s the impression I sort of got that time out; this new look, however, sells a straighter drama that even veers into thriller territory. I like the conceit at play here, simple or multi-tiered, though some mixed reactions out of Sundance have me keeping any expectations in check.
You watch it below:
Also starring Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde, and Dennis Quaid, The Words will open on September 21st.
