First Trailer for Woody Allen’s BLUE JASMINE Starring Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin

     June 7, 2013


Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer for Woody Allen‘s new film Blue Jasmine.  The pic stars Cate Blanchett as a New York City housewife who travels to San Francisco to be with her sister (Sally Hawkins) after losing all of her money when her husband (Alec Baldwin) turns out to be a white collar criminal.  Jasmine looks to take on a considerably darker tone that Allen’s recent output, but there’s still plenty of humor sprinkled throughout – particularly pertaining to Blanchett’s socialite clashing with her sister’s blue collar friends (played by the likes of Andrew Dice Clay and Bobby Cannavale).  Blanchett looks to be giving an incredibly strong lead performance supported by an unsurprisingly talented ensemble, and I’m definitely enthused by the prospect of Allen once again tackling a character who is in the midst of an emotional crisis.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg.  Blue Jasmine opens in limited release on July 26th.

    Haven’t know what to expect from this one, besides the unsurprisingly impressive cast and gorgeous locations. It certainly isn’t what I expected and seems like it tows the line more towards drama than comedy. Like most Allen films it will probably be dramatic happenings played to comedic effect. At the very least this looks much better than To Rome With Love, which was an unfortunate waste of a cast but beautifully shot.

    I wanted to see more of Louis CK in the trailer (especially since he is third bill on the poster). Woody Allen movies can really go either way and this one looks up in the air for now

      Woody always bills his cast alphabetically, so it doesn’t reveal
      anything about the size of the role. I think Louis’ part will be a
      supporting one.

      Louis CK is third bill on the poster because all of Allen’s films list the cast in alphabetical order.

    Strange how it seems unlike any Woody Allen film I’ve seen before. Something about the acting or the plot seems off… but still interesting. I’m curious about this one.

    Holy Cannavale, it’s Bobby Cannavale. I know Cate Blanchett is in it too, but I’ve really wanted to see more of him since he was in Boardwalk, so this is great.
