Baz Luhrman version — this version is set in modern times, in a large city, Verona. The language is Shakespearian but everything else has been converted to modern style.
Franco Zefferreli — This is set in medieval times. Most things are as the original text.
It seems like a Greek or Italian city, however it is still Verona. In the modern, Luhrman version, a news reporter on a television against a black background does this, however in the Zefferelli version, the prologue is told as the credits and title is shown.
The speaker is not seen, and the voice is coming from the background, the speech is in an old style. In addition, the Luhrman version has a series of scenes that explain and show to the viewers who the different characters in the film are, also in these scenes it repeats a section of the prologue in text and speech accompanied by fast paced, classical music.
After the prologue, the two films move onto Act 1 Scene 1. The speech is cut and it starts the scene at line 7. However, in this version, it is the Montagues that are shown first, whereas in the original text it is the Capulet.
The Zefferelli version follows the text more closely. The scene is set in a market place with the Capulets walking along and the speech starts from the original starting point. I think that the Luhrman version has a much better introduction to the film than the Zefferelli.
