Woody's latest romantic-comedy, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, follows his familiar themes of tangled love lives and the search for meaning and happiness. It stars Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Gemma Jones, Lucy Punch, and Freida Pinto.

This new US trailer, released Tuesday, features a voice-over explaining the various characters and storylines, such as Alfie who leaves his wife Helena to recapture his free-spirited youth again, while Helena surrenders her life to the advice of a psychic.

Then there's Sally who seems content in her marriage, but develops a crush on her boss at an art gallery.

And the neurotic novelist who is moonstruck over a young mysterious muse.

Set in London, the frantic attempts to resolve their problems and live their dreams only seems to complicate the situation.

This is Woody Allen's 44th film. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in New York and Los Angeles on September 22.
