The trailer for Woody Allen’s latest film, Cassandra’s Dream, starring Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell, and Tom Wilkinson is online. Set for release January 4th.
The tale of two brothers with serious financial woes. When a third party proposes they turn to crime, things go bad and the two become enemies. [IMDB]
Woody Allen’s last two movies were Scoop and Match Point. Scoop was the traditional Woody Allen comedy with cutesie dialogue and him basically playing himself, which looked kinda like Woody Allen fronting a Woody Allen cover band. Match Point on the other hand was way outside Allen’s comfort zone; a "thriller" with stilted dialogue and strictly plot-driven action. But it worked – the fact that it was a departure sort of made it interesting.
Anyway, Cassandra’s Dream looks a lot more like Match Point. And thank God. The world needs another Woody Allen self-parody like Brett Ratner needs another order of nachos. Oh, and hey, did you hear Woody Allen married his step daughter or something? I mean what’s up with that, am I right LOL!
