The theatrical trailer for Woody Allen’s latest film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger has been released and it features Josh Brolin and some really bad hair. The video made its debut over on Yahoo Movies but we have it right here for your viewing pleasure. Check out Allen’s newest romantic comedy set against a sweeping, urban backdrop. We haven’t seen this type of thing from him before — have we?
After Alfie leaves his wife Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine, Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. happy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg, while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia, a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Despite these characters’ attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water.
I don’t know about you but seeing Hopkins play an old man living out some sick Playboy fantasy looks hilarious. And Brolin’s a complete mess here, which is great because he does his best work playing characters at their wits end. It’s also good to see Banderas in a live action role again. I was starting to get used to him as a cat.
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger opens on September 22, 2010.
