Steven Spielberg's West Side Story trailer echoes a work of art

 The redo is at last on its way following a year delay 

Following a year delay, Steven Spielberg's West Side Story at last has a trailer. The new film melodic is a redo of the 1961 work of art and dependent on this trailer, which appeared Sunday during the 93rd Foundation Grants, it appears Spielberg is keeping many things devoted to the first.

The trailer spends a bit of time setting up the plot of the movie, which is basically Romeo and Juliet with two rival New York street gangs subbing in for the lovers’ royal feuding families. But for obvious reasons, the focus is on the singing and dancing.

The trailer gives us brief glances at some of the musical’s most famous songs like “Dance at the Gym” and “Tonight,” which all seem to share the original version’s theatrical scale and beautiful colors. The trailer also spends a bit of extra time recreating the original movie’s fantastic intro.

Spielberg’s remake stars Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) as Tony, the show’s Romeo stand-in, and Rachel Zegler as Maria, its Juliet. The film also stars Ariana DeBose (Hamilton), Mike Faist (Dear Evan Hansen), and Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight, Shrek The Musical). Rita Morena, who won an Oscar for her role as Anita in the original movie, will also return for the remake in a new supporting role.

West Side Story is set to release in theaters on Dec. 10. It was originally scheduled to premiere in December of last year, but was delayed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
