Today we have the trailer for a new adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" play, which stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Douglas Booth ("The Pillars of Earth"), Paul Giamatti, Ed Westwick, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Damian Lewis. Check it out below.
The story revolves around two lovers struggling to maintain a relationship despite being from rival families, the Montagues and the Capulets. No word on how the new adaptation will be different from the previous ones.
The new movie is directed by Italian filmmaker Carlo Carlei. It has yet to picked up by distribution in US, but will hit theaters in the UK on July 26th.
I did kind of enjoy the one with DiCaprio. Simply because I didn't know what the f*ck i was watching at first and I was trippin out. Just another who cares movie, and I definitely won't see it just because God (paul giamatti) is in it. Though I'm tempted, maybe he's the devil.

^^I'm a big Giamatti fan as well, but yeah, probably still not enough to drag me to this.

Giamatti's problem is he likes tripping through the magic kingdom too much. He's an avant garde explorer. He wants to do odd, cutting edge sh*t. No easy paycheck for him. He likes to do things and go places cinematically no other person has done or been. A James T f*cking Kirk of cinema, and like Kirk, he occasionally finds himself ensnared in a Tholian web of sh*t, as witnessed here.
