In typical Woody Allen fashion, the writer/director has been keeping details for his next film Irrational Man under tight wraps. But with the arrival of the first Irrational Man trailer, we finally have some idea of what this movie will be about.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have teamed for a film twice before. One was Crazy Stupid Love, and that worked out alright.
