Long considered unfilmable, Mark Helprin's novel "Winter's Tale" has been kicking around Hollywood waiting for someone to take it on. And that someone is Akiva Goldsman, the blockbuster producer ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," "I Am Legend") has written the adaptation and is making his feature debut with the flick. And full credit to him, with the first trailer arriving this evening, it looks like he's poured all he's got into it.

Winter's Tale

Long considered unfilmable, Mark Helprin's novel "Winter's Tale" has been kicking around Hollywood waiting for someone to take it on. And that someone is Akiva Goldsman, the blockbuster producer ("Mr. And Mrs. Smith," "I Am Legend") has written the adaptation and is making his feature debut with the flick. And full credit to him, with the first trailer arriving this evening, it looks like he's poured all he's got into it.

Starring Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Jessica Findlay-Brown, the story follows a thief who breaks into a wealthy man’s home, sparking a relationship with the man’s terminally ill daughter, with the apocalypse, rainbow bridges, resurrection, reincarnation and a flying, time-travelling white horse all part of the narrative. On the one hand, the movie looks pretty great visually, and Crowe in particular looks like he's having fun skulking around as the baddie. On the other hand, for all the sweeping emotion and music, we still have no idea what the hell this is about.

Guess we'll find out on Valentine's Day. Watch below.
