New trailer for La La Land arrives online

Lionsgate have recently released their latest trailer for Damien Chazelle's (Whiplash) La La Land.

Having brought us the tempo-obsessed J.K. Simmons and browbeaten Miles Teller in Whiplash (2014), Damien Chazelle's next film, La La Land promises to be a more warmly romantic dip into musical territory.

La La Land, as the title might suggest, is set in Los Angeles and finds Ryan Gosling (Drive) as Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, and Emma Stone (The Help) as Mia, an aspiring actress who are struggling to make ends meet as they pursue their dreams. Can their love survive the pressures and strains of life in this creative boiler room?

"I'd been working on La La Land since 2010," explains Chazelle of its origins in the latest issue of Empire magazine. "I was toying with the script while my friend (Whiplash composer) Justin Hurwitz came up with musical ideas. It was hard to get off the ground, but Whiplash allowed it to happen – much to the horror of some of the executives we brought it to. It was a tough sell, but they took the gamble."

With John Legend (Soul Men), Rosemarie DeWitt (Cinderella Man), Finn Wittrock (Unbroken) and Callie Hernandez (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) also in the cast, La La Land will be out in the US this coming December and waltzes its way to UK screens on 13 January next year.
