The new trailer for Bradley Cooper’s latest star vehicle has been released. This time it’s a thriller called ‘Limitless’, per ET Online, which is about “Eddie Morra, an aspiring author with serious writer’s block whose life radically changes when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a revolutionary-but-untested new pharmaceutical drug. After taking the pill, Eddie’s senses are heightened; he can recall everything he has ever read, seen or heard, comprehend complex equations and even learn any language in a day.
Eddie corners the stock market, making millions and drawing the attention of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon (Robert De Niro), who wants the wunderkind to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But Eddie’s accomplishments have also attracted shady characters that will stop at nothing to get their hands on his stash of NZT. Compelled to take the drug daily or he’ll suffer a wide range of side effects, Eddie’s life is soon in jeopardy as he attempts to hang on to his dwindling supply long enough to outwit his new enemies.”
Limitless is due out in theaters March 18, 2011. The film also stars Abbie Cornish and Anna Friel and directed by Neil Burger. Based on the novel of the same name by Alan Glynn.
