First Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s WEST SIDE STORY

west side story
First look at Spielberg's take on the classic musical.

There aren't many filmmakers that could get us excited for an adaptation of West Side Story, considering how flawless Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins' 1961 version is, but Steven Spielberg has enough credit in the bank to receive a pass.

With a screenplay from Tony Kushner, Spielberg's version stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler in the lead roles of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria. The film also stars Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, Josh Andrés Rivera, Ana Isabelle, Corey Stoll and Brian d’Arcy James, along with the return of Rita Moreno.

West Side Story is in UK/ROI cinemas this December.
