Whedon Riffs on Shakespeare

MuchAdo
When I put down my list of ten movies I’m looking forward to in 2013, I expected I’d end up leaving several gems off the list. forgetting some great titles was inevitable, but the most egregious was leaving off Joss Whedon’s adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. To make up for that earlier oversight, here’s the trailer to Joss’s take on Shakespeare.

The last time Whedon followed Kenneth Branagh adapting a classic work, we got The Avengers, can his take on Shakespeare fare as well in comparison to Sir Ken’s? We’ll have to wait until June to find out, but early word from the festival’s it’s played at makes this sound like a must see, and a terrible omission, here corrected.
