West Side Story image header

20th Century Fox has released its first look at Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of 1957’s West Side Story. Based on the Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise film of the same name starring Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, this latest iteration of the beloved musical, which takes inspiration from Romeo and Juliet, pairs Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria, respectively. And now we can have an idea of what to expect from the film just by looking at the setting and costume design. Check out the official image here below.

West Side Story

Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story has found its actress to play Maria opposite Ansel Elgort‘s Tony.

It’s been confirmed that New Jersey high school student Rachel Zegler will be playing the iconic role of Maria, the love interest of Tony, who is a member of a rival street gang. Natalie Wood played Maria in the 1961 original. The film was ahead of its time and one of the few to feature a richly diverse cast that had people of color in lead roles. It was one that helped Rita Moreno, who played Anita in the original and has a role in this new take on the story, to become the iconic figure that she is now.

Obviously with a film like West Side Story, any talent that is brought into the film will need to be able to sing. And before you question whether or not Zegler can sing, I suggest you take a look at the video of her singing a cover of “Shallows” from A Star Is Born. It left me floored. Check out who will be joining Zegler on the cast and the video, below.

Rita Moreno In West Side Story

Rita Moreno is an icon. The Puerto Rican singer, dancer, and actress is a true legend who broke gender and racial barriers. She has paved the way for future artists to make a name for themselves. The EGOT winner is best known for her role as Anita in West Side Story. In fact, that role helped her win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. And now, she will be coming back, although for a very different role.

New reports confirm that Moreno will star in Steven Spielberg’s remake of the 1961 musical of the same name. And in a slight twist, she will play a new character that is being designed for the film. More on the report, below.

Valentine’s Day 2016: 9 Love Stories That Won Best Picture

Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs Best Picture

With it being Valentine’s Day weekend, and all the buzz of the Oscars coming up later this month, it seemed like a perfect time for a COMBO LIST! When most think of Best Picture winners, you think sprawling historical epics like Gone With the Wind (1939), Lawrence of Arabia (1962) or Ben Hur (1959). War is a good place to find Oscar champions as well, such as Patton (1970), Schindler’s List (1993), and Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). But what about love? What about a sweeping romance? With that idea, I’ve scoured the 87 winners of the Best Picture Oscar and found the nine best love stories. Why nine? Because ten is what you were expecting, and with love being the theme, love should be unexpected and spontaneous… and also I could only really think of these 9. Any of these movies would be great to pop open a bottle of wine, dim the lights, and cuddle up with your significant other.

Check out the 9 choices below.
