Amazon Studios has released the trailer for Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, starring Jim Belushi, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake, and Kate Winslet. The film follows the interconnected lives of four individuals living in 1950s Coney Island. As a semi-fan of Allen’s films and an enormous fan of New York tales, I’m pretty excited for this one.
Wonder Wheel opens in theaters December 1st.
Wonder Wheel – Trailer – WONDER WHEEL tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment. Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro captures a tale of passion, violence, and betrayal that plays out against the picturesque tableau of 1950s Coney Island.
