The Weinstein Company has released a new Begin Again trailer for Once director John Carney’s upcoming music-centric dramedy. While the previous trailers have focused on the core relationship between Mark Ruffalo’s washed-out A&R man and Keira Knightley’s undiscovered musician, this new trailer offers a closer look at Knightley and Adam Levine’s characters. Levine plays Knightley’s ex-boyfriend in the film, a famous musician whose growing stature caused a rift between the two. The Maroon 5 frontman is actually quite good in the movie, and this trailer offers a preview of his original song “Lost Stars.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Begin Again:
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. BEGIN AGAIN is produced and financed by Exclusive Media and produced by Anthony Bregman, Tobin Armbrust and Judd Apatow.
