20th Century Fox released the first Rules Don’t Apply Trailer and poster for Warren Beatty’s new film. Beatty is back after being out of the spotlight since 2001’s Town and Country. Warren Beatty, who has been a part of the backdrop of Hollywood for over fifty years, returns to the big screen as actor, writer, producer, and director of this upcoming film. Rules Don’t Apply will be the first film he has directed since 1998’s Bulworth.

I was introduced to Beatty when he played the titular character in the comic book to live action movie, Dick Tracy. If you’re a lover of older Hollywood, you may know Warren Beatty from the films Heaven Can Wait and Bonnie and Clyde. In Rules Don’t Apply, Beatty plays Howard Hughes, an eccentric billionaire who keeps everyone guessing with his mercurial behavior.

Beatty is joined by many other Hollywood notables like Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, and Candice Bergen. The star-studded cast also includes Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Mirror Mirror) and Alden Ehrenreich ( Han Solo Star Wars spin-off movie, Hail, Caesar!).

Synopsis from 20th Century Fox:
An aspiring young actress (Lily Collins) and her ambitious young driver (Alden Ehrenreich) struggle hopefully with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire (Warren Beatty), who they work for.

It’s Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Ehrenreich), who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes’ behavior intersects with marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.
