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).

    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.)

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
