Café Society Trailer (2016)

Trailer for Café Society, which will be distributed by Lionsgate domestically and come to theaters on July 15th, 2016.

Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s bittersweet romance Café Society follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life. With Café Society, Woody Allen conjures up a 1930s world that has passed to tell a deeply romantic tale of dreams that never die.

If you look close enough, you will notice that Corey Stoll has a role in this film, and with hair! The actor's stock has been skyrocketing of recent with a roll in Ant-Man and the HBO series Girls. We've always been impressed with the actor and are happy to see him getting more attention. Woody Allen is obviously a fan of the actor, as Stoll also starred in Midnight in Paris.

Woody Allen is trying a whole bunch of new things for Cafe Society, challenging the notion "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." Not only is the director shooting on digital format for the first time, but it's first time working with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and using the 2:00:1 aspect ratio.

Any other firsts? Well, glad you asked, as this is the first role that Kristen Stewart had to audition for since 2008's Twilight. While I typically complain about the actress, she does look good here.

Cafe Society Trailer Screencap

The trailer for Cafe Society is nearly identical to the international version, save for a few different edits and (of course) no subtitles. My assumption is that, since the film is being released in international markets a couple months before the United States, the studio felt a subtitled international trailer had to be expedited.

As I said previously, the film looks like a ton of fun and Jesse Eisenberg has nailed the Woody Allen personality. Let's just hope that people can still stand that sort of personality taking the lead in a dramedy.
