Yes, they’re back. The faithfully tragic lovers from Shakespeare’s great romance are returning to the big screen once again. And as long as young kids are falling in love, we’ll probably average a Romeo & Juliet
movie every 12 years or so.
This new one has Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Juliet and Douglas Booth (LOL) as Romeo. Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Lesley Manville, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Stellan Skarsgard also star in the adapted version, which was written by Academy Award winner (and Downton Abbey creator) Julian Fellowes. The plot is the same it’s been forever, so there shouldn’t be any reason for spoiler alerts in 2013.
Check out the trailer above.
