Joss Whedon Joins Twitter, Trailer For His Version Of Much Ado About Nothing Arrives

much ado about nothingI’m under embargo and can’t review Joss Whedon‘s Much Ado About Nothing until much closer to its June release date – June 14th here in the UK, to be precise, and June 21st in the US.

No comment on the film, then. I can, however, review his first ever tweet. Here it is.

So…

Shorter than the original Shakespeare, but trimmed with care and, where relevant, expanded appropriately. There’s not a single new word, but some actions have been created to keep the whole thing flowing, moving in a cinematic fashion, not staying stuck in theatrical conventions.

Brilliantly cast, and performed with a wonderful lightness, with every joke landing perfectly. A technical wonder too, pulling off some simple tricks that bypass all of the normal shortfalls of a project completed on such a tight budget and under such time constraints.

And smaller than, say, The Avengers, but no less fun.

That’s my review. Of the tweet.

Honest. And now here’s the trailer for the film.
