Final title cards.

The biggest revelation is the tone. The film looks very serious. Still no sign of the other main actors. And we get a glimpse at why everyone is saying Blanchett deserves an Oscar. She is certainly putting everything into it.

What do you think of the trailer? Can you help us tie down a couple of the locations?

  1. It looks great though there are two things wrong with this trailer both of which are ‘cosmetic’. First that hideous CGI shot of the plane in the sky, i’m praying it does not make it into the finished film. (It will be in the film!) And the cheap title cards which look like they are from some TV movie, they should just use Allen’s regular Windsor font (used on the poster too), so people can recognise that it is A Woody Allen Film. Other than that it looks really promising.

  2. Okay, here’s some answers. Apartment interiors were shot at a flat in the Mission on 22nd St., between Valencia and Mission. The Ginger/Augie meeting is in the Sunset District. The lunch scene is “The Ramp” restaurant near AT&T Park. Ocean Beach is correct. The scene where Jasmine is walking and popping pills is outside a dentist office near West Portal.
