    The trailer just dropped for Greta Gerwig's new adaptation of Little Women. I think it looks pretty great. I'm a big fan of Lady Bird and can't wait to see what Gerwig does with this one. Also, what a cast!

    I hope this does well and doesn't get buried with the other recent versions of this story. There was a 2017 BBC adaptation and a 2018 film version.

    I’ve only seen the 1994 version at my wife’s behest. She owned it on VHS and says it was one of her most watched movies growing up. I actually liked it a lot and still haven’t seen any other version. The cast list looks impressive so I’m sure we’ll see this one.

    I only knew about the BBC one because I liked Maya Hawke in Stranger Things and the BBC Little Women was one of the only other things she has done.

    The Winona Ryder one is pretty great, so I don't know that we need another adaptation. But I love a good period film, and I love most of this cast, so I'll definitely check this one out.

    The 2018 film version was a modern day retelling targeted to the Christian market.

    Interesting that at the end of a very female empowerment-driven trailer, the two male stars get top billing over all of the female stars, including the three-time Oscar nominee in the lead role:
    littlewomen-credits.

    Another version of Little Women...why? Sorry, but I've always loved the book and have adored the Hepburn B&W, glossy MGM mid-forties reboot, and, of course, the superb 1994 Gillian Anderson update, which I consider the definitive adaptation of this time-honored tale. If only for these three movies we would already have quite enough of the March sisters to recommend. But there have been at least 10 movies and no less than 8 TV adaptations. Do we really need yet another version? Just asking.

    And in the actual body of the trailer Saoirse Ronan and Emma Watson are billed first.

    Just curious if anyone is in the know, when a bulk of the cast in listed alphabetically, does that mean that everyone has the exact same salary?
