“City of stars, are you shining just for me. City of stars, there’s so much that I can’t see.”
We have to say, we just can’t get enough of musical films! Lionsgate has released the latest trailer for Academy Award-nominated director Damien Chazelle’s upcoming jazzy musical “La La Land”. And no, “La La” doesn’t mean ratchet here.
Expectations are high for “La La Land” as this marks Chazelle’s follow-up musical movie since his critically acclaimed musical, “Whiplash” (2014), which has won a total of 52 awards that year including the “Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for Dramatic Feature” at the Sundance Film Festival and “Best Sound Mixing” at the Academy Awards.
The upcoming contemporary musical also reunites Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who acted as lovers in “Crazy Stupid Love” (2011) and “Gangster Squad” (2013).
The official plot for the film is as follows:
“‘La La Land tells the story of Mia Dolan (played by Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (played by 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 latest teaser video also features Emma Stone singing “Audition”, one of the film’s original soundtracks, and oh wow, who knew she could sing so beautifully? Ryan Gosling also sang “City Of Stars” for the film :)

Slated for release on 16th December 2016, “La La Land” also stars J. K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Meagen Fay.
