ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Tulip Fever will be blossoming in theaters this summer, and EW has an exclusive look at the first trailer for The Weinstein Company’s star-studded period drama.
Based on Deborah Moggach’s novel of the same name (and adapted for the screen by Shakespeare in Love’s Tom Stoppard), Tulip Fever takes place in 17th-century Amsterdam, revolving around the budding relationship between an artist (Dane DeHaan) and a married woman (Alicia Vikander) after the former is commissioned by the latter’s husband (Christoph Waltz) to paint her portrait. The lovers then gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.
Tulip Fever marks Vikander’s first major role since winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl earlier this year. Waltz and Judi Dench, Vikander’s Tulip Fever costars, have also won Oscars. Matthew Morrison, Cara Delevingne, Jack O’Connell, and Zach Galifianakis round out the film’s supporting cast. The drama also sees director Justin Chadwick returning to European period dramas following his work helming the 2008 Natalie Portman/Scarlett Johansson film The Other Boleyn Girl.
After Tulip Fever, The Weinstein Co. will release Michael Keaton’s Ray Kroc biopic The Founder on Aug. 5, and the Robert De Niro boxing drama Hands of Stone will follow on Aug. 26. The distributor’s Lion, starring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel and Rooney Mara, is slated for an awards season release on Nov. 25.
Tulip Fever opens in limited release on July 15.
