Check out the brand new trailer released for Begin Again, the new film from writer-director John Carney (Once). Begin Again tells the story of a downhearted music business executive (Mark Ruffalo) who forms a bond with a young singer-songwriter (Keira Knightley) new to Manhattan. This new trailer offers more of a look at Knightley’s relationship with Adam Levine’s character, and provides a listen to one of the film’s original songs, “Lost Stars,” performed by Levine himself. Once was a great little film, and early reviews suggest that Carney delivers another feel-good music-oriented dramedy with this one.
Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Yasiin Bey, James Corden, and Cee-Lo Green also star.
Official synopsis for Begin Again:
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. BEGIN AGAIN is produced and financed by Exclusive Media and produced by Anthony Bregman, Tobin Armbrust and Judd Apatow.
ETA: USA – 27 June, 2014.
