The first still from the latest Woody Allen film, Blue Jasmine, has today been released by Sony Pictures Classics.

The images shows a beautiful Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Sally Hawkins (Made In Dagenham), in a film which reportedly tells “the story of the final stages of an acute crisis in the life of a fashionable New York housewife.” The stellar cast includes Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin (who starred in 2012′s To Rome With Love) and – in a pairing come true – comedian Louis C.K.

This film marks the sixth collaboration between the legendary filmmaker and Sony Pictures Classics, who were also behind his triumphant Midnight In Paris, which starred Owen Wilson and a personal favourite of mine, Marion Cotillard. Other classic Allen films include the enduring Annie Hall, Manhattan, Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex, Hannah and Her Sisters, Husbands And Wives and Sleeper.

Though last year’s To Rome With Love received only mixed reviews, here’s hoping Allen can garner the same level of accolade he secured for Midnight In Paris with this one.

Blue Jasmine is released in New York and Los Angeles on July 26, 2013. There is as-of-yet no release date for the rest of America and Britain, so we’ll keep you updated.
