West Side Story 50th Anniversary poster and trailer launched

West Side Story

This week saw the launch of the trailer for our upcoming 50th Anniversary re-release of the classic 1961 musical, West Side Story. The poster was launched on our Facebook page on Wednesday.

An updated version of the Romeo and Juliet story, West Side Story pits rival gangs the Jets and the Sharks against each other in 1950s New York, as a young couple fall in love against a violent background.

Featuring music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story stars Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer and Rita Moreno and won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

The new digitally restored version preserves the film’s original 2:2:1 aspect ratio and is released in the second half of 2011.

    I’ve seen this amazing movie at least 60 times and will no doubt see it again and again.
    My favorite movie of all time.
