Starring Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose; Steven Spielberg brings us an adaptation of 1957’s West Side Story. A musical that explores forbidden love and the rivalry between two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds.

Just as I’d started to think that these days, Lin-Manuel Miranda is the only big name attached to hit musical movies; Steven Spielberg brings us a remake of West Side Story, the 1967 Oscar winning musical.

I watched the older movie in high school and I don’t recall disliking it as much as I do most musicals. For that reason and general curiosity, I’ll be watching this one. I also just love all the bright colours in this trailer.

David Alvarez, Rita Moreno, Mike Faist, Curtiss Cook, Brian d’Arcy James, Corey Stoll, Ezra Menas, Ben Cook, Sean Harrison Jones, Patrick Higgins, Paloma Garcia Lee and Maddie Ziegler also star.

West Side Story Release Dates: December 10th, 2021 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving

  1. I too remember watching the original in high school. It wasn’t bad, but to be honest I never watched it again. If I watch this one it will probably be mainly out of curiosity.

    1. Unless you absolutely love a movie, the chances of a deliberate second viewing are very limited. However, sometimes we need a remake to peak our interest again. Either we’ll be reminded of exactly why we didn’t revist it before now, or… something else. 😁
