Woody Allen's 'Magic in the Moonlight' trailer hits the web, stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth (Video)

By Will Ashton,

Writer/director Woody Allen is coming off of one of his best films in years with last year's Blue Jasmine, so, naturally, the anticipation of his next is even higher. Sony Pictures Classics has given the first look at what Allen is cooking up next with this first trailer for Magic in the Moonlight.

Starring Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver and Erica Leerhsen, among others, this 1920's "supernatural comedy" centers on an con-stage performing Englishmen (Firth) who is brought to an exotic French backdrop to unmask a charlatan mystic (Stone), only to fall for her as her peers do.

Set for a limited July 25 release, the film should be hitting theaters in just a matter of months. Until than, this first peek, released by Sony Pictures Classics on Yahoo, should suffice for fans of Allen's work hoping for another charmer from the veteran filmmaker.

Also, considering that Allen has recast Stone in his latest untitled movie opposite Joaquin Phoenix, it is clear that the director enjoys the company of his new leading lady.
