    “Romeo and Juliet is based off of the Williams Shakespeare play” Who writes these things? Not English.

    Sorry but this guy will never compare to Leo Dicaprio as Romeo.

    Another remake? Urgh…. Why can’t Hollywood come up with new ideas? R&J has now been remade like 7 times!

    Give us Claire Danes and Leonardo Dicaprio back. They were the ones.

    This looks very mediocre. There’s no point making yet another adaptation of this play if they are not going to try and add some sort of originality to it. Might as well just stick with the perfect Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 Romeo and Juliet or watch the Baz Luhrman’s inspired version.

    I am not against remakes – if someone thinks that they can re-intepret material in a new and interesting then fair enough. But it seems utterly pointless and extremely lazy to simply to simply copy the concept of someone else’s film & even recast actors that resemble the original cast.

    @Jen: Are you my cousin? lol. She loves Ed Westwick.

    LOL Says:

    I don’t think they are trying to compete with the Dicaprio/Danes version.
    It looks more to me to be heavily inspired by Franco Zefferrelli 1968 one
    I hope the music is as beautiful.

    @awkward:
    Are you kidding? that was the worst one. leo and claire looked stupid dressed in modern day clothes( well 90s style back then) talking in shakespeare speech. both were miscast. they only got the parts because they were popular teen stars back then.

    Darren Says:

    And I agree with someone who said it seems more based off the 1968 one, not 1996! Leo DiCaprio was not a good Romeo! Neither was Claire Danes a good Juliet.

    She looks nothing like Juliette. She doesnt have the pale skin they had at that time. She looks kind of asian.

    Why shouldn’t there be a new version? There’s no need to even compare it to Baz Luhrmanns film, they’re completely different takes on the story. And it’s been nearly 17 years since that film. Romeo and Juliet is done in the theatre repeatedly, the RSC practically do a production a year. Hell, there’ll be two big, publicised productions later this year in New York alone.
    The casting is great, much closer to the character ages than most productions. And let’s not forget this is set in Italy, why wouldn’t she have slightly olive skin and dark hair?

    If there hasn’t been a R&J film with this style made since 1968…then yes, I think it is fine if they make a new one. That was 45 years ago, folks.

    Jes Says:

    Sir Ben Kingsley said DiCaprio was the best Romeo ever. People who thinks he wasn’t good for the part don’t know anything. He even won the Silver bear at Berlin as best actor. And he wasn’t famous teen star at the time. He was doing just small indipendent movies and he was chosen because of his acting skills (and of course beauty). I actually don’t like the Baz’s version, but Leo wasn’t miscast and he was great.

    Ana Says:

    I like that it’s a classical interpretation-very similar to the zeffirelli version. I disliked the Luhrman version greatly-the acting wasn’t that great(less for a few people) and the “modern” style just looks old and cheesy now.

    ann Says:

    Hailey’s cute, but in my opinion, the most beautiful Juliet will always be Olivia de Hussey.

    ann Says:

    Yikes, phone typos — I meant Hailee and OIivia Hussey, but y’all know what I meant.

    Kay Says:

    why nobody is commenting that they spoiled the end in the trailer? Way to kill a movie.

    the movie looks beautiful but the cast just looks wrong for the part
