Check out the new first trailer for Joss Whedon’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” shot in crisp black-and-white and set to St. Germain’s “Rose Rouge.” The low-budget film stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof as sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick, and Fran Kranz and Jillian Morgese as Claudio and Hero. 

“Much Ado” was shot at Whedon’s California home over just 12 days. The film debuted in Toronto in fall 2012, and will have a special screening at SXSW. It hits theaters on June 21.
