First look at Woody Allen's Cafe Society

Woody Allen's newest film, Cafe Society, has released it's first full-length trailer.

Set in the 1930s, Cafe Society depicts the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema and follows Bobby, played by Zombieland and The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg, who hopes to pursue a career in film.

Moving from New York to Los Angeles, Bobby stays with his uncle, a Hollywood agent played by Steve Carell. Kristen Stewart plays Carell's assistant who befriends Bobby and shows him around the city.

Describing Los Angeles, Eisenberg's character says, "I'm kind of half bored, half fascinated".

Blake Lively and Parker Posey also star in the film.

Eisenberg was previously involved in Allen's To Rome With Love, which received mixed reviews. He also recently co-starred with Kristen Stewart in the film American Ultra.

This is the first time shooting in digital for Woody Allen. Cafe Society will be released by Amazon who has been increasingly wading in to the movie business.

Cafe Society follows a recent spate of films around Hollywood and the movie industry, such as the Coen Brothers' Hail, Caesar!, and Trumbo which stars Bryan Cranston in the lead role.

Debuting at Cannes Film Festival next month, the film will hit cinemas later this year.
