The first trailer for West Side Story dropped during the Oscars Sunday Night.
Spielberg’s remake of the classic stars Ansel Elgort as Tony and Rachel Zegler as Maria.
Directed from a script by his Lincoln and Pulitzer Prize winning writer Tony Kushner, the story draws inspiration from Romeo and Juliet.
It tells the story of star-crossed lovers torn between two gangs, the Jets and the Sharks is set on NYC’s West Side and features a cameo by original movie cast member Rita Moreno.
It originated as a 1957 Broadway musical written by Arthur Laurents with music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and concept, direction and choreography by Jerome Robbins. It doesn’t get more A-list than that, kids.
