‘West Side Story’ trailer puts Mara and Tony center stage
We got a sneak peek at the Jets and the Sharks in Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Story at the Oscars earlier this year, and now the official trailer’s here, there’s more where that came from.
The latest stunning look focuses on newcomer Rachel Zegler as Mara, who sings the big number “Tonight” across the trailer, and Ansel Elgort as Tony, and their classic forbidden romance for the ages amid New York’s Upper West Side.
Also in the cast are Ariana DeBose as Anita, David Alvarez as Bernardo, Mike Faist as Riff, Josh Andrs Rivera as Chino, Ana Isabelle as Rosala, Corey Stoll as Lieutenant Schrank, Brian d’Arcy James as Officer Krupke, and the legendary Rita Moreno as Valentina, who owns the corner store.
