Romeo and Juliet Trailer: Enjoy, Tenth Graders

Based on this first trailer, Julian Fellowes's reimagining of Romeo and Juliet is just a reimagining of corsets; this is the kind of movie you'd be forced to watch on the last day of English class, when your teacher is like "Screw it, I don't want to grade any more papers." (In fact, you probably were forced to watch this movie back when it was the Zeffirelli Romeo and Juliet. That's the one with the naked scene. Remember that?) Anyway, here's the update, with Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet, Douglas Booth as Romeo, and a bunch of famous supporting actors who barely make it into the trailer. Ed Westwick! Damian Lewis! Paul Giamatti (as the Friar, of course). Enjoy, tenth graders. It's more fun than actual class.
