La La Land is certainly one of the years more intriguing movies – an original musical starring Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling, from the director of Whiplash. It’s been a bit of a secretive one, but now we get our first proper look with a teaser trailer, which is enigmatic but looks pretty interesting.
The brief synopsis states: ‘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 trailer shows this will be a mix of realism and fantasy. John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe, Tom Everett Scott and Josh Pence also star. It’ll be out later this year.
