Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling Dream Big in Third 'La La Land' Trailer
"This is the dream! It's conflict, and it's compromise, and it's very very exciting." Lionsgate has unveiled a third trailer for the musical sensation La La Land, directed by Whiplash director Damien Chazelle, easily one of the best movies all year. I totally and completely LOVE this movie so much, just wait until you get to see it yourself. I
want need the soundtrack playing on repeat. La La Land stars Emma Stone as an aspiring actress who falls for a jazz pianist, played by Ryan Gosling, while living in Los Angeles. We've already seen two fantastic teasers for this movie already, but this full trailer takes the cake, and really shows how wonderful and exciting and full of love and hope and romance this movie is. I wrote in my review that it's "musical perfection, an exhilarating and emotional voyage through time, deep into music and cinema."
Here's the third official trailer ("Dreamers") for Damien Chazelle's La La Land, direct from YouTube:
From my Telluride review: "it's a love letter to having hope, it's a love letter to dreams. It will sweep you off your feet, possibly break your heart, but will remind you of all the audacious joy to be found in this world."
Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. La La Land is written & directed by filmmaker Damien Chazelle, his second feature film following Whiplash, which received a Best Picture Oscar nomination and won three other Oscars. Lionsgate is planning to release Chazelle's La La Land in select theaters starting December 9th this year, expanding wide soon after. Who else can't wait?
