Adam Levine is headed to the big screen!
The Maroon 5 singer, who appeared in three episodes of American Horror Story, stars in Begin Again, as a singer who drops his girlfriend (played by Keira Knightley) once he breaks it big in New York City.
In the first trailer, Adam’s character Dave is enjoying his time in the Big Apple with Greta until record execs explain they don’t “want anything to stand in his way” of getting famous … and just like that, he breaks up with her.
Heartbroken and alone in NYC, Greta, a musician herself, plays an acoustic gig at a local bar and catches the eye of a fired music exec (Mark Ruffalo), who then makes it his mission to record an album with her.
But Dave returns once he’s famous and tries to win her back … but will he be successful?
Begin Again, which also stars Hailee Steinfeld and CeeLo Green, will be released on July 4.
