In Limitless, Cooper is a burnt-out writer named Eddie who discovers a quick and easy path to renewed creativity courtesy of an experimental new pill that "unlocks 100% of his brain's capacity." This doesn't mean he just becomes more prolific, but he's suddenly unlocking whole new talents that bring his money, success, and ladies (that last part may have something to do with the fact that he already looked like Bradley Cooper).

Weekend Box Office - Limitless Tops Weekend of Limited Excitement
Despite the arrival of the first day of spring, things weren't exactly coming up roses for the box office this weekend. Three new arrivals made mediocre entrances as overall sales continue to slip. Limitless snagged the number one spot with $19 million. That's not terrible news for the movie itself since it's on track to turn a quick profit against a $27 million budget. It is, however, bad news for the box office in general.

Interview: Limitless' Bradley Cooper
While promoting the film Limitless, Bradley Cooper brought up an interesting topic; the character an actor plays winds up reflecting upon that actor. Basically, that meant that at a time, Cooper was seen as the nice guy from Alias then the jerk from Wedding Crashers and then the good looking smart alec from The Hangover. Well, now heís gearing up to turn that image upside down yet again with his latest film, Limitless.
