Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Damien Chazelle’s (Whiplash) upcoming musical drama La La Land. The film tells the story of “Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, 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.” I caught the film at TIFF this past September and loved it. It’s vibrant, dazzling, emotional and features an amazing performance by Emma Stone. I cannot wait to see it again.
Rosemarie DeWitt, John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Josh Pence, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe and Tom Everett Scott also star. The film hits theaters December 16th.
