The trailer for Woody Allen’s latest movie, “Irrational Man, ” which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone has been released.

The two minute preview gives viewers glimpses of Phoenix and Stone interacting. It opens with one character declaring that he heard that Phoenix’s character, Professor Luca, is joining his college’s philosophy department. A woman then responds, “really, that should put some Viagra into the philosophy department.”

The trailer shows on location scenes filmed at coffee shops and parks, something familiar to fans of Woody Allen movies.

At one point Phoenix plays Russian Roulette.



The movie is set to feature a romance between an older philosophy professor (Phoenix) at a small town college and his much younger student (Stone). The professor is suffering through some sort of life crisis and his young student helps him to somehow get through it.

Sound familiar? It should! An older man dating a younger woman has been a theme in many a Woody Allen movie like “Manhattan.” In fact, 1992’s “Husbands and Wives” had basically the same exact story only in that movie Allen played a married professor at Barnard College in New York who has an affair with one of his students played by Juliette Lewis.

Due out July 24, “Irrational Man” also stars Parker Posey and Ethan Phillips. It is the 50th movie that Allen has directed.
