Time Out says

The original was the biggest grossing movie of 1961 and won ten Oscars. It’s been a while since a musical topped the box-office charts but Steven Spielberg’s redo of already hotly tipped to play well with Academy voters. Instead of Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, it’s Rachel Zegler and Ansel Elgort, but the swooning Romeo and Juliet riffs, Rita Moreno is back, and famous Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim tunes remain. Altogether now: Mariaaaaaaaa!

In US and UK cinemas Dec 10.
