Steven Spielberg Releases Official ‘Westside Story’ Trailer: Watch + Listen

Based on the just-released trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s remake of West Side Story, the 2021 version of the original 1961 film looks as epic as the original Oscar-winning musical.

A little more than 2:00 in length, the preview outlines the classic story of forbidden love between two cultures portrayed by Tony (Ansel Elgort) and Maria (Rachel Zegler) and the hatred between rival Jets and Sharks gangs.

Although a remake of the 1960s film, Spielberg’s adaptation features brand new scenes and different dialogue.

In addition to the leading man and woman, West Side Story also stars Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, Mike Faist, Josh Andrés Rivera, Corey Stoll, Brian d’Arcy James and the legendary Rita Moreno, who won an Oscar for her performance in the original film.

Awaiting release after several pandemic-related delays, the 20th Century film wrapped in October 2019 and is due to hit theaters December 10.
