Lionsgate have recently released their latest trailer and one sheet 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. They make a love connection, but their relationship is tested by the pitfalls of their chosen careers.
We are certainly intrigued by the look, sound and feel of this one, and happy to see that Chazelle is keeping up the tradition of J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) berating people.
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 waltzes its way to UK screens on 13 January.
