Yes, Bradley Cooper Is Playing Jon Peters in the ‘Licorice Pizza’ Trailer

The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s coming-of-age film “Licorice Pizza” arrived today, and while there’s a lot to love about the first look at this new movie, the standout from this initial piece of marketing is Bradley Cooper. Bearded and wielding a Hulk-sized ego, Cooper steals the show as he chops up a pair of cars and asks the film’s young protagonist (played by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman’s son Cooper Hoffman), “Do you know who I am? Do you know who my girlfriend is?” The young character replies, “Barbra Streisand,” but the trailer doesn’t go so far as to say the name of Cooper’s character.

The official title of the auteur's new film is now Licorice Pizza, a big change from Soggy Bottom, which was the working title.

PTA is here with Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza sounds terrible. Not as a film, but as a thing. Licorice is one of those flavors, very strong and sometimes medicinal, that not everyone likes. Pizza, however, is universal. Everyone has their own idea about what goes on pizza, but pizza itself is widely adored. I wonder what it tells us about Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film that it is titled Licorice Pizza? Will it be universally adored, like Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, and Punch Drunk Love? Or will it be more Magnolia, Phantom Thread, Inherent Vice, the odd ducklings not everyone clings to in PTA’s filmography? The odd ducks are among my favorite works by PTA, so I’m kind of hoping it’s the latter.

In the age of constant advertising, the art of the theater-exclusive teaser trailer seems to be dwindling to a null. Don’t tell Paul Thomas Anderson that, though.

Anderson, long an advocate for the old way of making and releasing movies, is sending a sneak peek of his newest film out to select theaters who have the capability of showing a 35mm reel, and the Belcourt has snagged a copy.

Predictions Friday: Best Picture Is Still Unpredictable

There is the temptation, especially among those new friendos to the Oscar game, to “call it.” But if you’ve been around a while, you know those early premature calls can come back to haunt you. That happens less now in the day-to-day of Twitter madness than it used to. After all, does anyone really care if you can dig up a tweet that says “First Man is going to win Best Picture!”? No one really cares anymore. The page is turned not even daily, but hourly. But back when people used to actually write pieces in print magazines, those “wrong” predictions really could haunt you. We don’t need to go over some of the most notorious ones. For me, though, I’ve been doing this long enough that I already know it’s not really possible to predict how the preferential ballot will go.
