Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Just after the mildly enjoyable Whatever Works disappointed die-hard Woody Allen fans, along comes a short bright video for his next piece - yes, the trailer for You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger has turned up online.

With laid-back voiceover man reprising his Vicky Cristina Barcelona role, it's a typical Allen tableaux of failed couples and deluded human beings, all of whom will soon start cheating on each other to sleep with everyone else. As for the point-and-laugh philosophical joke of the day? This time it's the turn of psychics and mediums - an easy but fair target.

Still, it's not an unpromising blend of acting talent, with Josh Brolin taking on the usual Woody Allen character. He's joined by Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, and Freida Pinto - not a bad bunch of folks to have existential and emotional breakdowns on-screen.

As always, it won't win over newcomers, but for fans of Allen's brand of cinema, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger may well keep the hope going for that little bit longer. Check out the trailer over at Yahoo! Movies, or read on for the full thing.
