Trailer Break: Much Ado About Nothing

We're just three months away from another Joss Whedon film appearing on the big screen! Last time that happened, Whedon managed to deliver a mega-blockbuster superhero film that was a box office phenomenon as well as an unexpected critical hit. This time around he trades in Marvel Studios and explosions for Williams Shakespeare and elocution.

Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing has been one of my most anticipated film ever since I found out about its existence on my birthday two years ago. That was also the day they wrapped filming and decided to share the news with the world that Whedon was adapting one of Shakespeare's play into a film and was intent on filling his ensemble with who's who of Whedon players such as Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Fran Kranz, Sean Maher, and Tom Lenk. The film had its world premiere last year at the Toronto Film Festival and was picked up by Lionsgate which will release the film this summer June 7th 2013. And now it has a shiny brand new trailer which I have seen half a dozen times already:

Fun, right? And doesn't it just seem like Whedon videotaping a bunch of his friends who he has invited over his house to re-enact some Shakespeare while partaking in some food and alcohol? There's something so low-key and charming about that and I cannot wait to see the end result.
