A red-band trailer for The Five-Year Engagement has gone online. The film follows Jason Segel and Emily Blunt through the ups and downs of their prolonged engagement. Segel reteams with Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller on the film, and I’m a big fan of what we’ve seen thus far. This red-band trailer focuses on some of the dirtier jokes we were expecting from a Judd Apatow-produced comedy, with a fairly great sex scene between Segel and Blunt thrown in for good measure. It’s also nice to see The 40-Year Old Virgin scene-stealer Kevin Hart back in an Apatow comedy. I love the ensemble cast that Stoller has put together and I’m excited to watch everyone play off of one another in the finished film.

Emily Blunt is trying to find the perfect place to hold her wedding with Jason Segel. As she walks around a local bed and breakfast in Sonoma, California, she thinks she’s finally found it and starts to talk to the owner about price and dates. It’s at this point the owner starts to proposition her with some filthy language that I can’t write here. Startled but determined to use the location, she tries to persevere until he finally crosses the line. It’s at this point that everyone watching starts to laugh and writer-director Nicholas Stoller (Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) calls cut.
But let me back up a second.

I can’t remember the last time Woody Allen made a film as delightful as Midnight in Paris. He’s certainly done it before and it’s not one of his comedy classics like Annie Hall and Sleeper, but Midnight in Paris is undoubtedly one of Woody Allen’s best films of the past ten years. It’s the rare Allen comedy where he doesn’t insert an Allen-like neurotic character, and the script finds inventive ways to be funny and thoughtful. Johanne Debas and Darius Khondji’s cinematography is gorgeous, the film is filled with wonderful performances where you can tell that all of the actors are having a marvelous time, and Allen brings it all together with a joy rarely seen in his movies these days.
A number of images from Woody Allen’s latest film Midnight in Paris have been released. The romantic comedy centers on a man (Owen Wilson) who is in Paris with his wife (Rachel McAdams) but begins going off on his own a midnight to explore the nightlife the city has to offer. The trailer for the film was released last month, and actually shows a bit of promise given that Allen hasn’t really made a worthwhile film in quite some time.
The cast includes Wilson, McAdams, Michael Sheen, Kathy Bates, Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard, and Adrien Brody. Hit the jump to check out the images. Midnight in Paris opens May 20th and will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
In a rare move, Woody Allen has revealed details on his upcoming film, Midnight in Paris. Allen usually remains secretive on his projects until they’re in the can, but today he announced [via Variety] that Midnight in Paris is “a romantic comedy that follows a family traveling to the city for business, including a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey. The film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.”
The film has a diverse cast of actors including Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Carla Bruni, Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy, and Kurt Fuller. Filming is set to begin this summer in Paris. Allen’s new film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, will debut out of competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It will be released domestically this fall.
