Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel Trailer Starring Kate Winslet


After his last movie Cafe Society and his poorly received TV series Crisis in Six Scenes, Woody Allen is continuing to partner with Amazon Studios on his latest film, Wonder Wheel… and can you blame him? They reportedly gave him $25 million to work with and the result seems to be his most visually ambitious project in years. The movie is set on Coney Island in the 1950s and revolves around a waitress named Ginny (Kate Winslet) and her carousel operator husband Humpty (Jim Belushi). When Humpty’s estranged daughter (Juno Temple) enters the picture, the truth about his criminal past starts to cause problems for all of them. Justin Timberlake also co-stars in the movie, which feels a bit like Woody Allen’s version of Boardwalk Empire. Wonder Wheel hits select theatres on Dec. 1st; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    That looks dope. I’ll definitely watch it for Belush after Twin Peaks.
    I liked The Sopranos and all, but still dipping into that casting pool for gangsters feels a little lazy.
