A new Begin Again trailer has been released, this time in the form of a UK cut.  Directed by Once helmer John Carney, the pic (formerly titled Can a Song Save Your Life?) stars Mark Ruffalo as a washed up A&R man who discovers a young singer-songwriter (Keira Knightley) soon after being fired.  The two set out to change each other’s fortunes for the better while crafting a unique concept album.  This new trailer provides a better look at the film’s songs, which are fine if not all that memorable.  I caught the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and it’s pretty good, but it never really kicks into the next gear to become something all that noteworthy.  Ruffalo is, as always, excellent in the lead role, and Adam Levine is a surprise standout as Knightley’s famous musician boyfriend.

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.
