20th Century Studios is giving a glimpse of the new film West Side Story.
The studio shared a trailer for the musical drama Wednesday featuring Rachel Zegler and Ansel Elgort as star-crossed lovers Maria and Tony.
West Side Story is based on the Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents Broadway musical of the same name, which was previously adapted as a 1961 movie starring Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer.
The trailer for the new film shows Maria (Zegler) and Tony (Elgort) fall in love in 1950s New York City despite racial tensions and links to rival street gangs, the Sharks and the Jets. Zegler performs the song "Tonight" as Maria.
