The first trailer for Winter's Tale sets up an epic tale of romance that spans more than 100 years. Colin Farrell stars as Peter Lake, a thief who falls in love with Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay) in the early 1900s, before he is inexplicably transported to present-day New York City without any memories. Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman makes his directorial debut with this adaptation of Mark Helprin's beloved novel, arriving in theaters February 14, 2014.
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, Winter's Tale is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film stars Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Jessica Brown Findlay (TV's Downton Abbey), and Oscar winners Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Eva Marie Saint (On the Waterfront) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator). Winter's Tale also introduces young newcomers Ripley Sobo and Mckayla Twiggs (both from Broadway's "Once"). The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.
