FINALLY, those of us who have eagerly and impatiently waited for a glimpse of Joss Whedon's adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" have been rewarded with a full-length movie trailer for the black-and-white indie film.
MAAN premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and it's having its U.S. debut at SXSW in Austin next week. The film was picked up for distribution by Lionsgate and will be released in theaters nationwide on June 7th, 2013.
In the trailer we get a brief glimpse of what looks like a very classy, very jazzed-up interpretation of the classic Shakespeare comedy. MAAN was filmed over just twelve days at Whedon's home in Santa Monica, and the setting and atmosphere look stunning.
On top of that, we get Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk looking goofy, Amy Acker crying (always a tragedy), plenty of physical humor, Agent Coulson deep undercover, and some sexiness thrown in for good measure.
Watch the "Much Ado About Nothing" trailer again. Go on. You know you want to.
Can’t stop the signal: "Much Ado About Nothing" had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and will debut in the US at SXSW in March. You can check out the press release and full cast list at MuchAdoTheMovie.com.
