Just ask Jon Favreau: being a chef isn’t easy, but making a movie on the subject matter in the 2010s sure make for compelling viewing. Bradley Cooper loves it too; the heat, the pressure… the violence? Yes, try to open a kitchen in the world today and people will be out to kill you. Seems believable enough.
John Wells made one of the worst and most loathsome films in 2010 with The Company Men. Then he made a pretty angry, loathsome film with August: Osage County in 2012. Now he’s headed to the kitchen to make a pretty
angry intense version of the culinary scene.
I guess I’m in.
Also, heart the sound effect during the closing credits of the trailer. Nice touch!
