The latest trailer for Damien Chazelle’s La La Land has been out for a few weeks, but since we haven’t showcased it on the site, I figure now’s as good a time as any. A movie musical made in an age where they don’t really do big screen musicals anymore, the film stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and has been getting plenty of rave reviews. This is Chazelle’s follow-up to Whiplash.
Also, I’m kind of a sucker for movie musicals.
Check out the trailer below.
Ain’t it dreamy? Here’s a synopsis for La La Land:
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
La La Land hits theaters in select cities on December 9th, with a wider release planned for December 16th.
