Emma Stone is Woody Allen's latest muse as the filmmaker makes his return to Europe

The Oscar-winner, who jumped back to the United States for last year's "Blue Jasmine" after a decade of making (mostly) successful films across the Atlantic, also goes back in time for "Magic in the Moonlight." The first trailer, unveiled on Wednesday, promises a light story set in the 1920s, in which Stone plays a fraud of a seance and mindreader, to the great frustration of Colin Firth, who has traveled from England to the South of France to debunk her powers.

As it turns out, she has great power over at least one spirit: That of Firth himself.

The film, which co-stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, and Jacki Weaver, hits theaters on July 25.
