"He adored New York City... He romanticized it all out of proportion." Park Circus and MGM have unveiled a brand new trailer for the 4K digital re-release this year of Woody Allen's seminal romantic comedy classic Manhattan, which first opened in 1979. It didn't win any Oscars, but it did win Best Film at the BAFTAs. Woody Allen also stars in this, along with Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, Anne Byrne, Karen Ludwig and Michael O'Donoghue. The 96-minute film has been carefully restored to 4K, and will be released in NYC first, which is fitting considering it's all about a love for NYC. Ebert wrote in a review from 2001 that "it's more subtle, more complex, and not about love, but loss." Here's the new re-release trailer for Woody Allen's Manhattan, direct from YouTube (via Indiewire): In Manhattan, Isaac Davis is a divorced writer of TV shows unhappy with his job. »

It’s been a handful of films since Woody Allen stayed put in the city where he made his name. This summer’s Wonder Wheel will finally mark his return to the Big Apple with a film set solely there, but for those that want to revisit one of his most acclaimed films, the opportunity will arrive shortly. One can not neglect to mention Manhattan when it comes to both the greatest NYC-set movies and the best Woody Allen movies, and now it’s been given a 4K restoration.
Ahead of its 12-day return to theaters at Film Forum starting early next month, Park Circus have released a new trailer, which sparkles with Gordon Willis‘ incredible cinematography, as well as includes some of the film’s most memorable scenes — and, of course, ending with that shot. Featuring Allen, Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, and Anne Byrne, check »

On March 10, New York’s Film Forum will premiere a new 4K digital print of Woody Allen’s iconic 1979’s romantic comedy “Manhattan.” The director’s black-and-white masterpiece is the first of his films to be made available digitally by Park Circus and MGM, and we have the exclusive new trailer and one-sheet for the film.
The director’s magnum opus follows the story of Isaac (Allen), a television writer who’s had two failed marriages. Things get complicated for the 42-year-old when he starts dating a teenage girl named Tracy (Mariel Hemingway) and then falls in love with his friend’s lover (played by Diane Keaton).
