Second Trailer for Beatty's 'Rules Don't Apply' with Alden Ehrenreich
"You're not like other people, you're an exception." Fox has released the second trailer for Warren Beatty's new film Rules Don't Apply, a romantic drama set in Hollywood in the 50s. Beatty directs and also stars in this as Howard Hughes, who contracts a young actress - played by Lily Collins - to work for him in Los Angeles. She meets her personal driver played by Alden Ehrenreich (who is playing a young Han Solo in the Star Wars spin-off) and falls for him, but can't break the rule of having a relationship with an employee. The full cast includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Steve Coogan. This looks fun and quirky, but it doesn't look like it's going to win over anyone. Some of the scenes still seem a bit dry, but maybe it's just me. Take a look below.
Here's the second official trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, direct from Fox's YouTube:
Tells the unconventional love story of an aspiring actress (Lily Collins), her determined driver (Alden Ehrenreich), and the eccentric billionaire (Warren Beatty) who they work for. It's Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist Marla Mabrey, under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes, arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her personal driver Frank Forbes, only two weeks on the job and also from a religiously conservative background. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes' #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have an intimate relationship with a contract actress. Rules Don't Apply is both written & directed by legendary actor-filmmaker Warren Beatty, who hasn't directed anything since Bulworth in 1998; as well as Dick Tracy, Reds and Heaven Can Wait. Fox will release Rules Don't Apply starting November 23rd this fall.
