With the Tribeca Film Festival about to be underway, the Weinstein Company has released a new trailer and poster for John Carney’s Begin Again formerly called “Can a Song Save Your Life?” starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, Adam Levine, Catherine Keener, James Corden, and CeeLo Green.
The film debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last September where many sang its praises, even calling Mark Ruffalo a strong contender for Best Supporting Actor among other things. As a huge fan of Carney’s last film Once, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, I’ve highly anticipated this film for some time.
The film is listed to open in theaters on July 4, 2014.
Check the trailer and the poster out down below:
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
