Romeo & Juliet Trailer


It's trailerlicious around these parts. So another Romeo & Juliet adaptation, yes. But this one has Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet and Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence, so I am very much going to be seeing it. Is it just me or is the actor who plays Romeo really sort of channeling Leonard Whiting from the Zeffirelli version? Not a bad thing, my friends. Not a bad thing at all. Due out October 13th, will you be seeing it?

  1. I hadn't heard about this, I'll definitely be seeing it! I really liked Romeo when he was Pip in Great Expectations.

    1. Me, too! I saw that he'd played Pip but I haven't seen it yet. Must rectify that.

    Ooooh I've had my eye on this trailer for about a month now. Hopefully the movie is as stunning as the trailer. I love seeing how all movie/play adaptions change the story in some little way, and am looking forward to see how Julian Fellows and the director interpreted the story. I'm also super excited for Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. She looks gorgeous! Everyone I know hates Romeo and Juliet though, so I guess I'll be seeing it by myself. =(

    1. I don't know how I missed it until now. I've enjoyed Julian Fellowes' work so far, so I have high hopes. I know a lot of people scoff at R&J, but I have always loved it. Unabashedly. :)

    2. Speaking of book-movie-trailers, the first trailer for The Book Thief came out today (like literally a couple of hours ago). That film also looks amazing.

    3. I saw it! Still can't believe it's going to be a film.

  5. I can't wait to see it! I too have always loved R&J - I own both the Zeffirelli version and the Luhrmann version on dvd. I especially like that they keep on using Zola Jesus's song "Skin" in the trailers for this one (IMHO, the first trailer they released is better than the one you put up).

      I'll have to check out the first trailer.

    This is the first time I've seen this trailer and it looks good. I'll be willing to watch it if I remember by the time it comes out. LOL.

    1. It's funny when a new adaptation comes out and you see the trailer and realize, yeah, I am totally up for a new take on that story again. :)

    I was wondering why the actor playing Romeo looked so familiar! (I did see him in Great Expectations, but I kept feeling as if I knew him from something else, something much older.)

Interview with Diana Peterfreund + Rampant Giveaway!

Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meani

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken 's debut novel-- Brightly Woven --last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here . As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Woven first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in

Interview with April Lindner + Jane Giveaway!

I'm very excited about today's interviewee. As you know, I had been looking forward to the publication of Jane for months when a review copy happened in my lap and I let out a gasp of joy. Being a modernized retelling of Jane Eyre with a rock star-ized Mr. Rochester named Nico and a cover that hits every last one of my aesthetic buttons, it was sort of made to order for this reader. Needless to say, it more than lived up to my not inconsiderable expectations and I have been recommending it on a pretty much daily basis to family, friends, co-workers, neighbors . . . you get the picture. It's now just under a month until the book is out and, in anticipation of the release, I invited  April Lindner over to dish about all things Jane. She kindly accepted. Please welcome April! First things first: The Cover. I am in deep smit with that cover. Did you have any input and what was your reaction upon seeing it for the first time? I adore the cover too, and was blown away the
