Vicki Trailer Barcelona

Courtesy of Defamer comes this strange teaser trailer for Woody Allen's next film, Vicki Cristina Barcelona. I've been anticipating this movie a lot for some reason. Maybe it's the cast (Javier Barden, Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johannson, Rebecca Hall, Patricia Clarkson) or the locations (er, Barcelona) or just the general good buzz that seems to have surrounded Allen's latest outer-Manhattan venture (pretty much all based around the, now confirmed, rumour that Cruz and Johannson get hot and sweaty together).

But, as I said at the start, this is a very strange teaser. It's basically a whole lot of kissing and then there's a gunshot. No dialogue at all. Maybe the whole movie is in Spanish and they're shielding us from it?

My question: If Penelope Cruz is nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress (which considering Allen's history is quite possible) will the Academy be able to resist having her boyfriend and co-star Javier Bardem present her with the statue?
