“Something’s coming!”

A first look at Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story remake aired during the 93rd Academy Awards. The film, shot in the summer of 2019, was originally planned to be released Christmas 2020 but was pushed back to December 2021 due to the pandemic.

The film follows Maria (Rachel Zegler) and Tony (Ansel Elgort), members of rival gangs – the Jets and the Sharks, as they all in love with each other in 1950 New York. Stars of screen and stage, Ariana DeBose (Hamilton, The Prom), Mike Faist (Dear Evan Hansen), David Alvarez (Billy Elliot), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) and Brian D’Arcy James (13 Reasons Why, Something Rotten) round out the cast.

Rita Moreno, who won an Oscar for her role as Anita in the 1961 movie adaptation of the beloved musical, will also star as Valentina. Moreno is heard in the trailer singing “Somewhere.”

West Side Story will be released in theaters on December 10, 2021.
