Woody Allen’s YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER looks decidedly British

I've been living in New York City going on three years now, and I still haven't seen Woody Allen shooting a new film on the streets of The Big Apple. This probably has something to do with the fact that the upper class auteur has been shooting a lot of his films on the other side of the pond as of late. However, seeing WHATEVER WORKS last year - one of Allen's first films to be set in Chinatown - was a real thrill, considering I live blocks away from many of the locations that were featured. It was also the first Woody Allen film I saw in a theater in New York.

Allen's additions to the great American film collection continue to grow on an almost annual basis, and you can take a gander at the international trailer for his latest entry after the break.

Allen is constantly remaking and rebooting his previous work, and every big name actor wants their shot at playing a version of Alvy Singer and Annie Hall. And if it were up to me, Allen would keep making movies until he drops dead on the set of his last film. That being said, this doesn't look to be one of his best. It got a lukewarm reception at the Cannes Film Festival, and looks like it will be enjoyable but hardly worth writing home about.

YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER stars Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto, Lucy Punch, and Antonio Banderas. The film opens September 22.
