Winter’s Tale Trailer
Akiva Goldsman, who has won an Academy Award for the screenplay of Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind, makes his debut as a film director with Winter’s Tale, whose trailer has been unleashed online thanks to Warner Bros.
Based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Mark Helprin, Winter’s Tale is set in the early 20th century and concerns small time criminal Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) who falls in love with the dying young woman (Jessica Brown Findlay) whose home he has broken into to rob. He has also pissed off a ruthless gangster (Russell Crowe), who tries to kill him. However, Lake wakes up in modern day New York, seemingly saved by a mysterious white horse, and begins a journey of self-discovery (and possible romance) with Jennifer Connelly’s character.
The cast includes Will Smith, Lucy Griffiths, Matt Bomer, William Hurt, Kevin Durand, Kevin Corrigan and Eva Marie Saint.
Winter’s Tale is out on Valentine’s Day next year.
