Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing trailer
The trailer for Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing does play it up just a little bit too much, but none the less it's a good trailer and indeed a good film. Still, this trailer suggests that it is better than it actually is and I would wonder if some of the people providing quotes for it have seen any other Shakespearean adaptations.
I obviously refer to the master Kenneth Branagh and his Much Ado About Nothing which I definitely see as the better film. Still, this adaptation is very good and there is laughter and enjoyment to be had from it.
What I hope above all for Much Ado About Nothing is what I hope for any Shakespearean adaptation, that it attracts more audience and film-makers to the works and we get to see more new and daring adaptations.
Joss Whedon's adaptation is very good, I've seen and enjoyed it, but there are some dips and I did think that Kenneth Branagh's version was superior. Yet this does well and provides a newer, modern setting for the story as well as casting some surprising characters.
Here's the trailer for Much Ado About Nothing that comes through Deadline:
Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof lead the film as Beatrice and Benedick with other recognisable names such as Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz and more, all providing a good take on the classic play of love, romance, revenge and betrayal.
