West Side Story: here’s the first trailer for Spielberg’s adaptation

It was finally released the trailer for the film adaptation of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg. The original musical tells the troubled love of Maria and Tony, in the middle of a New York plagued by racial hatred. The show had already had a transposition for the cinema in 1961, but this new version seems to have truly out-of-scale production values.

It seems that fans of the historic musical can rest easy: the film version of West Side Story is in fact in better shape than ever in this new trailer. The story, freely inspired by the story of Romeo and Juliet in a modern way, is set in the 1950s in the Upper West Side, one of the most multi-ethnic neighborhoods in New York at the time.

The protagonists are Maria, a young Puerto Rican played by Rachel Zeglerand Tony who instead has the face of Ansel Elgort. The two fall in love, but their feelings are hampered by the two youth gangs of Sharks and gods Jetswhich will lead them to face a long series of prejudices and challenges to make their love triumph over these adversities.

The rest of the cast of this new West Side Story comprehends many actors young and relatively little known such as Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, Josh Andrés Rivera, Ana Isabelle, Corey Stoll and Brian d’Arcy James. A great return in thickness will be to Rita Moreno, who had participated in the 1961 adaptation.
