First Official Trailer for Rob Marshall's New Musical Nine
Not to be confused with Shane Acker's animated film 9, The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for Rob Marshall's Nine, a musical based on Fellini's 8½. This first premiered on Broadway in 1982 and is just now being adapted, much like Chicago, which was Rob Marshall's other huge success. Although this has a stellar cast - Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren - it's just not my cup of tea, sorry to say. I really hated Chicago (I don't care if it won the Oscar) and this feels much too similar to that film. I love Daniel Day-Lewis, but count me out this time.
