Movie Trailer: Much Ado About Nothing

The first real (there was promo footage released previously if memory serves) trailer
for Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing is out now and it’s great. Great soundtrack, lots of promise of his cast of friends and favorites having a good time with Shakespeare’s dialogue and great black-and-white.

The only possible point of hesitation I have about this is that I love the Kenneth Branagh film from the early 90s so much. It’s the perfect entry point to Shakespeare on film: Light and airy and completely enjoyable. But it’s Whedon so it’s almost certain to work just fine, though obviously on a different level than Branagh’s film.
