Bradley Cooper’s conducting skills take front and centre in the new trailer for his Leonard Bernstein biopic. Check out the Maestro trailer here.
We’re still a couple of months away from Maestro's 20th December Netflix release, but with a limited cinema release in the States on the November horizon, the streamer have dropped another trailer for Bradley Cooper’s sweeping biopic.
Look, here it is!
Set to some rather atmospheric choral music conducted by Bernstein in the film, the trailer takes us through the now familiar arc of the plot, focusing on the composer’s relationship with his wife, Felicia, from their first meeting to their last days together. And look, Sarah Silverman’s also there (she plays Leonard’s sister, she didn’t actually know him).
As well as directing, Cooper still (they haven’t changed the casting since the last trailer) plays the titular maestro, with Carey Mulligan on hand as Felicia. There’re some more close-ups of the makeup team’s extraordinary (and somewhat controversy-inducing) prosthetics, and plenty of shots of Bernstein conducting big orchestras at different ages. Swapping between full colour and black and white photography, Maestro doesn’t seem to be apologizing for its cradle to grave structure that has gone a bit out of fashion amongst biopics over the years.
It looks like properly classical, properly weepy stuff. We’re rather excited, truth be told. They just don’t make them like this anymore (except, obviously, they just have. Oops.)
Maestro arrives in a limited number of UK cinemas on 24th November, with a Netflix release scheduled for 20th December.
