Back in May, Culture Monster shared with you the trailer for Rob Marshall’s ‘Nine,’ the upcoming Weinstein Co. film based on the Broadway musical(s) of 1982 and 2003 and Federico Fellini’s “8½.” Now there’s a new ‘Nine’ trailer out -- this one interspersing rehearsal shots with scenes from the actual film.

With a screenplay by Michael Tolkin and the late Anthony Minghella, the film features Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren, Stacy Ferguson (Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas), Judi Dench and Daniel Day-Lewis. Whew. With a team like that, how could it go wrong?


Then again, many people are saying the trailer was the best part of “Where the Wild Things Are.” (Or was it just Arcade Fire fans who were saying that?)

Well, we at Culture Monster have faith. After all, Rob Marshall is the guy who brought “Chicago” to life on the big screen. And the theatrical trailer and the new rehearsal video of ‘Nine’ sure make it seem as if it will rate a 10. But just to be safe, we’ll withhold judgment until ‘Nine’ is released on Christmas Day.
