Watch: First Trailer For Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' Starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin & Sally Hawkins

Well, it’s been twelve months, so it’s time for another Woody Allen film. This time around it’s “Blue Jasmine,” and no, he’s not in exotic Barcelona, stuffy London or the touristy Rome. Instead, he’s in San Francisco for the first time, and the results look pretty great.

As always, the plot details have been kept under wraps but the first trailer finally reveals what looks to be a pretty solid-looking dramedy. Cate Blanchett, in what looks like a pretty great turn, leads the pic as a woman, once riding high financially, who becomes broke and moves back in with her sister, played by Sally Hawkins. And what’s revealed is a strained relationship between two sisters, with those around the latter (including Andrew Dice Clay and Bobby Cannavale) looking to protect the Hawkins from Blanchett, who may be using her.

It looks both funny and dramatic, and Allen has usually excelled with stories about siblings (i.e. “Hannah & Her Sisters“). So consider us optimistic. “Blue Jasmine” arrives on July 26th. Watch below.
