Never hold onto the past as Jazz is the future, well it is in new UK Trailer for Damien Chazelle‘s La La Land Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone aren’t living a pipe dream, there living the dream! Check out the new UK ‘main’ trailer that delivers a big slice of Hollywood classic charm to get you into that Friday feeling and of course the weekend…
Chazelle’s success streak looks like it will continue with his Whiplash follow up, which many critics are calling it one of the best. As he goes all out musical once again, all singing and dancing could it bag him Oscar glory?
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.
The previous Trailers (including the American ones) have all showcased the musical and dance side of the movie, giving us the impression of the old classic Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire movies. In this new version, it plays on the more surreal and fantasy side as well as showing off new unseen footage. Gosling and Stone show for the third they have a natural chemistry between them which shines here,JK Simmons once again shows he’s musician-friendly.
Dreamlike, positive, upbeat, funny, romantic this movie has everything going for it.The American critics adore it, I just hope when it arrives here it’s not an over hyped hyperbole.
La La Land will dance into your heart when it arrives in UK&Irish cinemas from 12th January 2017 (USA 15th December). The movie also stars John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe, Tom Everett Scott, Josh Pence.
