Things We Saw Today: Cyrano Movie Trailer Brings the Musical to Life With Peter Dinklage

The love triangle of Cyrano de Bergerac, Roxanne, and Christian is one that has, recently, been all the rage on stage. From the musical hitting off-Broadway in 2019 with Peter Dinklage and Jasmine Cephas Jones to James McAvoy playing another hot version of Cyrano on the West End, we’re really leaning into the “Cyrano is hot, actually” side of this show, and I’m okay with that. That has clearly carried on into Dinklage returning to his musical role as Cyrano in the Joe Wright film adaptation.

Releasing its first trailer today, Cyrano gives us a look at “Someone to Say” from the musical, and fair warning, I started to cry the minute that Haley Bennett started to sing as Roxanne.

The story of Cyrano de Bergerac is one that we know from adaptations like the 1987 film Roxanne, starring Steve Martin, or from reading the play by Edmond Rostand. But there is just something about this trailer that hit in a way I was not expecting, and my interest in Cyrano just increased tenfold.

With music from the band The National, Cyrano is definitely going to break my heart, and I can’t wait.
