‘Winter’s Tale’: Something familiar about that trailer . . .

(Before I get into this topic, a pause for what may well be the most pressing movie issue of the month, i.e. the difference between Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth. Chris is the one who plays “Thor” — opening tomorrow — and who looks a lot like Chris Pine, who is sometimes mistaken for Chris Hemworth or sometimes Chris Evans, which isn’t quite fair as Chris Evans doesn’t really look like either of them. Liam is the one who plays Gale in the “Hunger Games” movies and looks kind of like Zac Efron, but bigger. Everyone clear now? And yes, there’s another Hemsworth brother, named Luke, but he doesn’t yet have his own franchise so let’s just ignore him for now.)

OK. So here’s the trailer for “Winter’s Tale,” which I’ve been curious about for some time; it’s based on a much-praised Mark Helprin book (which I guess I’d better read soon), its cast features Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly,  Russell Crowe, and Eva Marie Saint; and it’s the directing debut of screenwriter Akiva Goldman. But watch this (undeniably pretty trailer), and tell me what your first instinct is:

Mine too. Namely: Are we really going to have to watch Lady Sybil die again?
