‘Magic in the Moonlight’ Trailer: Emma Stone Is Enchanting in Woody Allen’s Latest
The first trailer for Woody Allen‘s ‘Magic in the Moonlight‘ has arrived, and it looks like a delightful follow-up to ‘Blue Jasmine,’ and a much-needed dose of comedy and charm after all that drama. What could be more charming than Emma Stone and Colin Firth hanging out in 1920s France?
‘Magic in the Moonlight’ stars Firth as an Englishman who poses as an Asian magician, who’s brought in to help decipher whether a young woman who professes to be psychic is actually swindling everyone. But, of course, he finds himself quite taken with the lady, played by Stone, and begins to question whether her abilities are legitimate.
The first trailer is quite wonderful, and it certainly piqued our interest. More than just the romantic comedy elements, there’s also the intrigue of whether Stone’s character is a phony or if she’s a real-deal psychic. Stone already signed on for Allen’s next, untitled project alongside Joaquin Phoenix, which is set for release next year.
As usual, Allen assembled quite the cast for ‘Magic in the Moonlight,’ as Stone and Firth are joined by Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver and Hamish Linklater. The film is set to hit theaters on July 25.
