The Words Synopsis
Starring Bradley Cooper, Oscarģ-winner Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and ZoŽ Saldana, 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.

Itís hard to explain The Words without giving too much away and going into much plot detail. If youíve seen the trailer, you probably already know more than you should about the crazy, artsy thriller, but if you didnít already catch it in theaters, or are a fan of Bradley Cooper, youíll be able to catch the film when it hits Blu-ray and DVD on December 24.

Why Didn't You Go To The Movies Last Weekend? Why Didn't You Go To The Movies Last Weekend?
I absolutely love working here at Cinema Blend, but I will fully admit that the job is hard during this portion of the calendar. Why? Because my job is to talk about movies, and itís hard to do that when nobody out there is interested in talking about movies. If youíve been paying attention to recent box office numbers than you might have noticed that people have basically stopped going to their local theater.

Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana In Page-Turning First Trailer For The Words Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana In Page-Turning First Trailer For The Words
Based on the trailer, it appears that Cooperís character, a struggling novelist, somehow steals a manuscripts penned decades earlier by an author who is wrestling with many of the same demons. Iím sure thereís another twist built into this literary drama, though the teaser trailer wisely hides it.
