Penelope Cruz as Carla in 'Nine'
We're a little lost on what to make of the latest video to hit the web from Rob Marshall's film version of Nine, now hitting theaters in December. First of all, we know that Marshall likes his movie musicals to live in a purely fantasy world--every song in Chicago was a dream. And we know that he loves the backstage showbiz milieu that Bob Fosse also did so well in on the big screen. But how interesting that the Weinstein Company is choosing to promote Nine with a video highlighting the behind-the-scenes process of making the movie before we actually see the movie. We're not sure if this should be giving us pause about the film itself, but either way, the video below looks pretty stunning. So click on to see the fabulous leading ladies of Nine in and out of rehearsal for a movie that will be a big Christmas gift for Broadway fans. We hope!
