After a year's delay and numerous reports that the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake would air during the 93rd Academy Awards, aka the Oscars, the teaser trailer is finally here! Even though it is a remake, it seems that Spielberg might be keeping quite a few things close to the original. The new version will be released on December 10, 2021, exclusively in theatres. Let's take a look at the long-awaited trailer...West Side Story storyline
West Side Story began as a musical created by Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein as a modern take on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The story is set in 1950s New York and it follows two rival street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, who from different ethnic backgrounds. This particular adaptation of the Broadway musical was a huge success, winning 10 Academy Awards, so even a great filmmaker like Steven Spielberg will have the bar set high.
It has been a whopping 50 years since anyone has attempted to remake the musical, but the new remake promises to bring back the story in a new way. The movie will be led by a young fresh of fresh air with a diverse cast, including Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort as Tony and newcomer Rachel Zegler as Maria. These two will take centre stage of the love story in West Side Story and the cast will also include Ariana DeBose as Anita, David Alvarez as Bernardo, Mike Faist as Riff, Corey Stoll and Brian D'Arcy as police officers, and original West Side Story movie star Rita Moreno as Valentina.
Let's talk about the trailer
The first trailer for the West Side Story doesn't seem to give much away, but we can take a glimpse of what is to come. Even though the story is a musical, there seems to be a lack of emphasis on the music as the whole trailer seems to be a flashback of events that transpired to the tune of "Somewhere". There are small hints about the similarities that the remake will have with the original, showing off the sassy ladies and warm-hearted gents, but it holds back on revealing how Spielberg plans to stage the singing/dancing sequences. The trailer opens with the eerie prolonged introduction of Steven Spielberg, which leaves us wondering will it feel like a musical or will it be overshadowed by Spielberg's traditional movie style.
West Side Story is set to release in theatres on December 10. It was originally scheduled to premiere in December of last year but was delayed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
❏ STREAMING MEDIA ❏
Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb to stream refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner.[clarification needed] Streaming refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself. Distinguishing delivery method from the media distributed applies specifically to telecommunications networks, as most of the delivery systems are either inherently streaming (e.g. radio, television, streaming apps) or inherently non-streaming (e.g. books, video cassettes, audio CDs). There are challenges with streaming content on the Internet. For example, users whose Internet connection lacks sufficient bandwidth may experience stops, lags, or slow buffering of the content. And users lacking compatible hardware or software systems may be unable to stream certain content.
Live streaming is the delivery of Internet content in real-time much as live television broadcasts content over the airwaves via a television signal. Live internet streaming requires a form of source media (e.g. a video camera, an audio interface, screen capture software), an encoder to digitize the content, a media publisher, and a content delivery network to distribute and deliver the content. Live streaming does not need to be recorded at the origination point, although it frequently is.
Streaming is an alternative to file downloading, a process in which the end-user obtains the entire file for the content before watching or listening to it. Through streaming, an end-user can use their media player to start playing digital video or digital audio content before the entire file has been transmitted. The term “streaming media” can apply to media other than video and audio, such as live closed captioning, ticker tape, and real-time text, which are all considered “streaming text”.
