“The world will never accept someone like me, and a tall, beautiful woman,” Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage says in the trailer for the film Cyrano. He plays titular character Cyrano de Bergerac in a new musical version of the age-old tale.
Cyrano is the charmer who’s trying to win the heart of Roxanne, played by Haley Bennett. The problem is, Roxanne has her sights set on newcomer Christian, played by Kelvin Harrison Jr. “Experience the greatest love story ever told,” the Twitter account for Cyrano tweeted Wednesday morning, along with the new clip.
Throughout the trailer, which dropped Wednesday, we get a peek at the elaborate dance numbers, gripping sword fights and powerful vocals featured in the musical film.
The film’s soundtrack was written and composed by The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner, with lyrics from the band’s frontman Matt Berninger and composer Carin Besser.
Cyrano is directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) and lands in theaters in December.
