To Rome With Love trailer

It's been nearly a year since Woody Allen has opened a film-- his last, the triumphant and Oscar-winning Midnight in Paris was one of the auteur's best and most successful.  He continues his European tour with To Rome With Love (oh, that title with it's generic sound-- its was curiously retitled recently from the more interesting sounding Nero Fiddled), with an amazing cast-- Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, Judy Davis (a moment to appreciate her awesomeness, and the biggest laugh of the trailer surely belongs to her "Euro" line reading), Allen himself, and gulp...Robert Benigni.  While this looks like a probable failure from the most productive American filmmaker currently working, here's hoping that's not the case.  My worry is soon he will run out of European cities to pine over.  The film opens this June, in an attempt for distributor Sony Classics to find early summer magic like Midnight last year.  The film, unlike Midnight will not have its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this May, as it debuts in Italy this month.
