Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman’s directorial debut Winter’s Tale. Based on the novel of the same name by Mark Helprin, the story takes place in a mythic New York City and spans more than a century, revolving around a thief (Colin Farrell) whose love appears to transcend time. As opposed to some of the time-bending TV spots that have been playing recently, this new trailer smartly focuses on the love story aspect between Farrell and the character played by Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey). We also get plenty of Russell Crowe’s villain and his goofy accent.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly and William Hurt. Winter’s Tale opens February 14th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Winter’s Tale:
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil.
