From Academy Award nominated writer and director, Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), comes La La Land. A modern day take on the Hollywood musicals of old, it re-unites Crazy, Stupid, Love stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. And today we have the first trailer for the film! Here’s a bit more about it:
Set in the starry-eyed metropolis of Los Angeles, Stone plays aspiring actress Mia and Gosling is struggling jazz musician Sebastian. The pair fall in love, and before they know it, their hopes and dreams are intertwined in a proper romance. But just as LA brings them together, it threatens to tear them apart. In the cut-throat world of entertainment, Mia and Sebastian struggle to forge their own identities, and soon discover the greatest challenge they face is balancing art and love.
La La Land will have its World Premiere at the 73rd Venice Film Festival – where it will also screen in competition as the Opening Night film. The single “City of Stars” (performed by Ryan Gosling) will be released prior to the film’s opening.
Entertainment One will release La La Land in Australia in January 2017.
