I was browsing through some old bookmarks and came across the trailer for Rob Marshall’s upcoming film version of Nine, Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s musical based on Frederico Fellini’s :

I really, really, really want this film to be phenomenal. I don’t just want something that’s OK or pretty good; I want something that’s absolutely fantastic. The cast looks great – Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson and Stacy Ferguson. And Marshall seems to have proved that he knows what he’s doing when it comes to musicals. The one thing that makes me pause is that some bits in the trailer look an awful lot like what Marshall did in Chicago and I honestly don’t know how I feel about that. At the very least I feel somewhat ambivalent about it. Is Marshall forcing Nine into a concept where, as in Chicago, the numbers are all diegetic? I guess I’ll have to wait until November (or whenever it’s released over here) and see…. Till then I’ll live in the hope that I’ll stop by my local cinema and be completely blown away by what’s up on the screen.
