Starring award-winning actor Peter Dinklage, Haley Bennett and Kelvin Harrison Jr, the film is a musical retelling of the classic love story of quick-witted wordsmith Cyrano who helps a soldier, Christian, fall in love with Cyrano's cousin Roxanne, despite being enamoured with her himself but feeling unworthy of her.

Roxanne subsequently falls in love with Christian's beautiful words… despite them coming from Cyrano. The first-look exclusive clip shows Cyrano's skills as a swordsman as well as his unwavering love for Roxanne, sadly saying that "the world will never accept someone like me and a tall, beautiful woman".

The new clip also reveals the film's director, Joe Wright, describing the hero of the tale. He explained: "Cyrano is a flawed hero. He has inordinate courage, he's witty and brilliant and he's desperately in love with Roxanne." Peter added: "Cyrano has this reputation of being the greatest swordsman but his Achilles heel is that he doesn't fully believe that he can be loved by her."
