Wonder Wheel : Woody Allen treats us with a sumptuous first trailer

Share

But populating Wonder Wheel are a few unfamiliar faces to the Allen repertoire: Wonder Wheel stars Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi, and Juno Temple, all first-time collaborators with Allen.

Set in the 1950s, movie follows waitress Ginny (Kate Winslet) and husband Humpty (James Belushi), a hard-drinking carousel operator.

It's a classic Allen tragicomedy of words and wits, all set to the bright bustle of the famous Coney Island amusement park.

The US officials were briefed by law enforcement and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing. Fasulo reiterated that authorities believe Paddock acted alone and that there were no known threats to Las Vegas .

The film is already getting some Oscar buzz for Winslet (though, to be fair, it seems nearly everything Winslet does gets some amount of Oscar buzz), and the star has said it's one of her toughest roles yet.

In recent years, Woody Allen has blown hot and cold, alternating small wonders (Blue Jasmine, Café Society) and disappointments more or less large (The Man irrational, To Rome with love). Wonder Wheel will soon move from the festival circuit to a limited release with a little help from Amazon Studios, and today we saw the film's first trailer. While Ginny seemed to be on the verge of becoming a Stella who gets her proverbial groove back when attracting the interest of a handsome lifeguard, Mickey (Justin Timberlake), everything unravels quick when her husband's grown daughter Carolina (Juno Temple) comes back home. Winslet already has one career Best Actress win for her performance in the harrowing drama The Reader. We'll find out for certain when Wonder Wheel begins its North American rollout on December 1.
