Focus Features has released the first trailer for writer/director Sofia Coppla’s “Somewhere.” It is Coppola’s first feature film since her 2006’s “Marie Antoinette.”

The film, which stars Stephen Dorff as Johnny Marco — “a bad-boy A-list actor stumbling through a life of excess” whose life changes upon the unexpected arrival of his 11-year-old daughter Cleo played by Elle Fanning.

The bad-boy turned soft in me is definitely looking forward to his film, which drops December 22, 2010. Check out the trailer after the official synopsis:

Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is a bad-boy A-List actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. His days are a haze of drinks, girls, fast cars and fawning fans. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self.

Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny’s fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. So when the time comes fro Cleo to leave, his sense of loss is palpable, but the gift of hope she has also brought him leads to a beautiful, poetic denouement imbued with all of Coppola’s remarkable powers to conjure mood and atmosphere.
