Woody Allen

These aren't the most exciting photos, but as a growing Woody Allen fan, I can't help but feature them, especially because this is our true first look at his new film titled You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. The title comes from an early scene where a lonely woman consults with a gypsy fortune teller who predicts that she will meet the love of her life. The film was shot in London last year and stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins (all seen below), as well as Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Anna Friel, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Punch and Christian McKay. More info on the plot can be found beneath the photos as well.

Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Thanks to RopeofSilicon for digging these up. Here's the You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger synopsis from Sony Pictures Classics: "A little romance, some sex, some treachery and apart from that, a few laughs. The lives of a group of people whose passions, ambitions and anxieties force them all into assorted troubles that run the gamut from ludicrous to dangerous." Yep, that's exactly the vague plot we expected for an ensemble Woody Allen film. I don't even know what number film this is he's directed, but he just doesn't stop. Sony Classics recently scheduled You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger for limited release on September 23rd.

I loved his last two films in theaters, and have enjoyed all the rest on DVD; so much so that I will be sure to see this movie opening weekend. Keep up the good work Mr. Allen.

Woody has directed ca 1 film a year since 1966. Seen all, own almost all. I know, a bit odd for someone who is a horrorfilm fan 🙂

Don't like Woody Allen film, don't find them funny. All is film seem to me is about Relationships boaring you can get that in real life you want escapisam when going to the cinema not been board to death.

Bring it, the man embodies a timeless effort of creativity and creation comparable to the legacy of Greek greats who were at times frowned upon, mocked, disputed and shunned but in the end, indifferent to negativity or praise, they kept on creating and left the world with a million artistic elements to draw upon and marvel at as time passes.

#4 - Cineprog Films haven't been exclusively escapism since the 30's. Get with the times.

September 23rd? Looks like I'll be seeing Woody at TIFF. I went to see Cassandra's Dream the morning after the Premiere and sat right beside the two RESERVED spots hoping to see Woody. In the past he had been a fan of morning screenings as opposed to night screening, so I thought I had a chance of seeing him. I waited in anticipation for about 45minutes until the lights dimmed and no one came. I still believe those seats were for him. Too bad, maybe this year.

Crumb, I'm with you. Some people here need to learn to spell... It's not "board", it's "bored". Not "boaring" but "boring". LOL

#4 - Cineprog Then go lay your money on a Michael Bay film, it seems that it's all your mentally challenged faculties can comprehend.
