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.
