Lily Collins Stars in New Trailer for ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

A new trailer for the upcoming ensemble flick Rules Don’t Apply has hit the web. Set against the backdrop of Hollywood in the 1950’s, the film follows Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) as she is hired as a studio actress for Howard Hughes’ (played by Warren Beatty) RKO Pictures. Once there, she falls for Frank (Alden Ehrenreich), a determined driver, and they engage in what is described as an unconventional love story about ambition, infatuation, and human connection.

The film will see the long-awaited return of Warren Beatty behind the camera, his first directorial effort since 1998’s Bulworth. Beatty, who has not starred in a movie since 2001’s Town & Country, produced the film, as well as writing the screenplay, adapted from a story he wrote alongside Bo Goldman.

In addition to Beatty, Collins, and Ehrenreich, the film gathers quite the collection of Hollywood heavyweights with Annette Benning, Ed Harris, Martin Sheen, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Oliver Platt, and Alec Baldwin all making an appearance in the flick.

Set to hit theaters on November 23rd, the film is positioned for a run throughout awards season, with Beatty hoping to earn his 15th competitive Academy Award nomination. His only win came as best director of Reds in 1981, but perhaps he will taste success once more with the release of Rules Don’t Apply.
