The new trailer for Winter’s Tale has been released, and it’s all about love, love, love. The trailer for this fantasy-drama from Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar-winning screenwriter who penned A Beautiful Mind and I Am Legend, almost shamelessly ticks off as many boxes needed for a film to be released on Valentine’s Day. Sure, it’s packed with cheesy one-liners and the mix of fantasy and drama feels a little awkward, but it all actually looks kinda sweet. If it does it right, then Winter’s Tale should be the perfect film for couples to go see.
Starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and William Hurt.
