‘Little Women’ trailer: Meryl Steep, Emma Watson star in revamped Christmas classic

Little Women 2019

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is one of those classic stories that filmmakers just can't stop adapting for screens both big and small.

Ronan stars as Jo, the second-eldest of the March sisters, and Watson stars as Meg, the eldest. The trailer has been hotly-anticipated among fans of the book and the nearly equally beloved 1994 movie. It makes it feel like this setting is modern to these characters, so rather than feeling like stodgy relics or distant ancestors, their lives and concerns become immediate. Instead, Gerwig has clearly found her own take on the material, and I can't wait to see how it all shakes out when it arrives in theaters on Christmas.

Ebola Cure Found: Two New Drugs Significantly Lower Death Rate
According to the Post report, the two new therapies were tested in a multi-drug, controlled trial since November previous year . They saved about 90 percent of patients with low levels of infection, according to preliminary data released from the trial.

Past adaptations of "Little Women" have included director George Cukor's 1933 film starring Katharine Hepburn as Jo, director Gillian Armstrong's 1994 film with Winona Ryder in that role, and the 2017 PBS miniseries directed by Vanessa Caswill and starring Maya Hawke as Jo.

Little Women reaches U.S. theatres December 25 and United Kingdom cinemas December 26. It's the story of Jo and her three sisters - Meg, Beth and Amy (Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlon and Florence Pugh) - on their journey to womanhood in the aftermath of the Civil War, guided by their Marmee (Laura Dern). But the idea of Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig infusing her style, sense and sensibility into it, and gathering a quality cast of young actors, is certainly appealing.
