“Little Miss Sunshine” directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris haven’t directed a feature since their Academy Award-winning indie hit, which opened a whopping six years ago. They’re finally back this summer with their romantic comedy “Ruby Sparks.”
The trailer for the high-concept romantic comedy starring “Sunshine” breakout Paul Dano, Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Chris Messina, Steve Coogan and Zoe Kazan (who also penned the script), just made its premiere online, and by the looks of it, “Ruby Sparks” looks like a winner and bears the heart-warming quirks that made “Sunshine” such a hit.

Fox Searchlight opens “Ruby Sparks” on July 25.
