First Full Trailer for Greta Gerwig's New Adaptation of 'Little Women'
"My girls have a way of getting into mischief." Sony Pictures has finally debuted the first official trailer for Little Women, another big screen adaptation based on the beloved classic American novel of the same name (there was also a film in 1994 based on it featuring Winona Ryder). This adaptation is the follow-up to Lady Bird from writer/director Greta Gerwig, and she has put together one incredible cast for this one. Meryl Streep stars as Aunt March, with Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Florence Pugh as Amy, Eliza Scanlen as Beth, and Emma Watson as Meg. Joined by Timothée Chalamet, James Norton, Laura Dern, Louis Garrel, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Cooper, Abby Quinn, and Tracy Letts. This looks like a vibrant, playful update on the classic story with some delightful performances elevating the material. Looks superb.
Here's the first official trailer for Greta Gerwig's Little Women, direct from Sony's YouTube:
Little Women explores the lives of four sisters in 1860s Massachusetts in the aftermath of the Civil War. This new adaptation focuses more on the March sisters' young adult lives, particularly after Meg, Jo, and Amy leave their family home. Little Women is directed by American actress-turned-filmmaker Greta Gerwig, director of the films Nights & Weekends and Lady Bird previously. The screenplay is also written by Greta Gerwig, adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of the same name first published in 1868. Produced by Denise Di Novi, Arnon Milchan, Amy Pascal, Robin Swicord. Sony will release Gerwig's Little Women in theaters everywhere starting December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year. First impression?

That trailer was too long. Anyways, it's Greta Gerwig, it has a great cast and it's shot on 35 mm film by a talented cinematographer. I'm in.

Yes, it was shot on 35 mm and it looks good....but, but, but...you also liked the Malick movie's photography and that was shot digital. (read my post on that thread). The difference in the look is so enormous to me, but it's not to you? You have no problem with the 'digital' look? Even though this Little Women thing isn't my cup of tea I sure like the look of it because of being shot on film. It's beautiful. The sky is actually blue!...lol...

Movies shot on film look better, and they always will, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate well shot digital movies. I will always like the film look more, there's just something about it, but there are many great looking films on digital. Malick's new film looked beautiful to me, of course the landscape and set design help a lot, but there's something about the way he chooses to move the camera around that's very appealing to me, it looks good. Now, if he were to shoot it on film, it would probably look even better of course.. Like you, I loved Days of Heaven, and Badlands too. But I also love The Tree of Life, which for me is his magnum opus. I also saw To the Wonder and Knight of Cups, and while I can appreciate them, they aren't nearly as good. I'm hoping this one is. Btw, did you check out the "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" trailer that came out yesterday? Another good looking film shot digitally, I liked the trailer a lot.

Didn't see the Lady on Fire trailer. I did see today the Parasite trailer and liked its look a lot and it was shot digital. Same with the rom com The Last Christmas. It too was shot digital and looked good. If digital looks as good as those two I'm all for it. Most just doesn't though and I don't know why. I'll always prefer the look of film too as you stated because there is something about it that digital hasn't matched and never will.

So, let's see what Greta Gerwig is going to do with. So far, she had interesting films ...

Look at Gerwig flexing on these fools! I kinda want to see that....and I'm a (gasp) guy! 🙂

Didn't care for LadyBird and this is not my "cuppa". I'm sure it'll probably get lots of accolades due to performances and direction.

Looks good. That is a knock out cast.
