TRAILER: Woody Allen & Owen Wilson's "Midnight in Paris"

PLOT: A romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple (Wilson and McAdams) forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better.

CAST: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Marion Cotillard, Adrien Brody, Kathy Bates, Carla Bruni

VERDICT: Oh. My. God. Is that what Owen Wilson has been doing all this time? Playing a more appealing version of Woody Allen? Amazing! For the first 60 seconds of this trailer, I was like, Yeah Michael Sheen's character is a douche. If Owen doesn't want to endure him, neither do I. But then the mystery and intrigued manifested. I haven't seen a Woody Allen film since 2006's Scoop, and I wasn't impressed. This, not only looks much better than that one, but it also looks like the stepping stone Wilson needs to return to form. Please God, no more Hall Pass's, How Do You Know's, or Marmaduke's. Bring on the insecure, neurotic Man of Mystery.

Release Date: May 20 (limited)
