Cafe Society pic

Earlier today, we shared a few clips from Woody Allen‘s upcoming picture, Café Society. Although it’s sometimes difficult to know what to expect from Allen these days, Café Society looks more enjoyable and intriguing than, say, Magic in the Moonlight and You Will Meet a Tall Darker Stranger. Some of the writer and director’s most recent comedies haven’t struck a chord with audiences and fans, but perhaps his latest film will.

Below, watch the new Café Society trailer.

Like clockwork, another Woody Allen movie has peeked its head over the horizon. It’s an annual tradition at this point: the legendary filmmaker always arrives with another movie and each of them feels like another bold shout of “I’m not dead yet!” at the dark, gaping and empty void that encircled his comedy and drama for the past fifty or so years. After all, you have to go back to 1981 to find a year that didn’t feature the release of a new Allen film. A year without a new Woody Allen movie is the year Woody Allen kicks the bucket.

The trailer for Café Society, his latest movie, has arrived and, well, it looks like another late-period Woody Allen movie. By now, you probably know whether or not this is your thing.

Rumors had been swirling for awhile that Woody Allen‘s next film, titled Cafe Society, would open the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Today an official announcement confirmed those rumors, making this the third time Allen has opened the French film festival. Hollywood Ending and Midnight in Paris had the honor in 2002 and 2011 respectively.

Cafe Society, starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, will premiere at the festival on May 11th, and along with this news, we finally have an official logline. In traditional Woody Allen fashion, it doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what we can expect from the romance, but some details were recently revealed by cinemtographer Vittorio Storaro. In addition, a new photo from the movie was revealed that you can see below.

Woody Allen

For the past forty years, Woody Allen has reliably churned out one film per year. And for the past seven years, Sony Picture Classics has been faithfully by his side to put them out. But even Woody Allen needs a change of pace from time to time. So his next movie is going not to Sony, but to Amazon Studios, which also commissioned his first-ever TV series last year.

Come to think of it, Allen is basically living the plot of one of his own movies. Allen, of course, is the neurotic, intellectual older man who finds himself in a rut, and Amazon Studios is the lively, perky, much younger woman whom he doesn’t quite understand, but nevertheless proves to be just the person to help break him out of that funk.

Irrational Man

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.

Joaquin Phoenix stars as a philosophy professor who’s suffering from an existential crisis: he can’t write, he can’t breathe, he “couldn’t remember the reason for living,” as he says in the promo. But he gains new purpose when he strikes up a relationship with a beautiful young student played by Emma Stone. Watch the Irrational Man trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Ned Rifle trailer

When the time came to make my most-anticipated list for 2015, there was no question that Hal Hartley’s new film Ned Rifle would take a spot. Just as Richard Linklater created a surprising and unlikely trilogy of films, here Hartley completes a three-film cycle that follows the story of a garbageman whose profane poetry wins the Nobel prize and changes the world, thanks in part to the influence of a hedonistic novelist. The two previous films, Henry Fool and Fay Grim, create a sort of alternate world defined by absurdist, deadpan humor, odd espionage and literary superstardom.

In the Ned Rifle trailer you’ll see many of those elements at play, along with attempted patricide, hero worship, young love, religion, and James Urbaniak running down everything that makes an audience happy. It’s great! Read More »
