Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone make us swoon as “La La Land” drops a luminous Teaser Trailer

19 July 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

If you saw my predictions late last week, you saw that I’m very high on La La Land, the upcoming modern musical from Damien Chazelle. This high concept romance is his follow up to the Oscar winning film Whiplash, so it’s clear that this movie has clear Academy Award hopes. Not only is it my perceived frontrunner right now, it’s just one of the 2016 releases to be most excited about this fall. A few days ago, a Teaser Trailer was released, and boy does it look absolutely delightful. You’ll see that Trailer below (and hear some of the original song City of Stars), but in the meantime, I want to whet your appetite a bit for La La Land… The flick is, again, a musical, with original songs, capturing the old time Hollywood spirit but in a completely new story. It follows a jazz pianist in »

Venice Fest To Celebrate Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jerzy Skolimowski

14 July 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival is celebrating French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo, who gained stardom during the French New Wave in Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless,” and director Jerzy Skolimowski, pioneer of the Polish New Wave, with Golden Lions for lifetime achievement.

Belmondo, whom the fest in a statement called “an icon of French and international cinema,” first attended Venice in 1965 with Godard’s couple-on-the-run pic “Pierrot le Fou,” which was booed there before going on to gain praise and becoming a groundbreaking classic.

Synonymous with French cool, Belmondo is also known for his roles in French gangster movies such as “The Big Risk” by Claude Sautet (1960) and “Borsalino” by Jacques Deray (1970). His other standout pics include crime drama “The Night Caller” by Henri Verneuil (1975) and two films directed by Claude Lelouch, the Hollywood-set romancer “Love is a Funny Thing” (1969) and drama “Itinerary of a Spoiled Child” (1988). Belmondo also played the French »

The Breathless Love of the La La Land Trailer

13 July 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Whiplash director Damien Chazelle is singing and dancing with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

When you fall in love with someone it leaves you breathless, exhilarated, and longing. There is the undeniable chemistry you feel with that person. It’s electric. You can feel it. You look towards art to capture and imitate what you feel. Chemistry between actors can make or break what it is you are watching. Two of the actors that have mastered that distinctive spark between people in love are Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. They first appeared together in Crazy, Stupid, Love and were remarkably charismatic and charming. Then they were paired together in Gangster Squad. While the film was a dud, their chemistry was the bright spot that makes the film. Now, they are back playing lovers for a third time in La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s hotly anticipated second feature.

Must Watch: First Trailer for Damien Chazelle's Musical 'La La Land'

13 July 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"City of stars, are you shining just for me...?" Lionsgate has unveiled the first fantastic trailer for Damien Chazelle's new Los Angeles-set musical La La Land, and it's so totally wonderful. I love everything about this and can't wait to see it. Ryan Gosling stars as a jazz pianist who falls for an aspiring actress, played by Emma Stone, in the City of Angels. There's lots of singing and dancing and it all fills me with such joy because this is the next film from Chazelle, who blew everyone away with Whiplash. The full cast includes J.K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sonoya Mizuno, Hemky Madera, Josh Pence and John Legend. This is one of those stop-what-you're-doing and watch this right now kind of trailers.

La La Land Trailer Gets Musical with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

13 July 2016 8:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A jazz pianist and an aspiring actress fall in love but face difficulties as they become more successful in the new romantic musical La La Land. Today, we have the first trailer. And if proves one thing, it's that stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone can't keep their eyes off each other. And they obviously like working together, as this isn't the first or even second movie that makes good use of the pair's chemistry.

La La Land marks the duo's third movie together. They were first paired as mismatched lovers in the 2011 romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love. Just two years later, they would reunite for the 2013 period crime drama Gangster Squad, where they would once again work side by side in an ensemble of today's biggest and brightest stars. Now, together, they both attempt to sing in a musical that arrives just in time for the Holidays on December 16.

Lionsgate has released a wonderful first trailer for La La Land. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), check out this first look at the film below.

Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

Original musicals are a tough sell, but combined with A-list actors Stone and Gosling, helmed by Chazelle and a Los Angeles setting, AMPAS voters will flip for this type of film.

Watch the stunning first trailer for Damien Chazelle’s ‘La La Land’

13 July 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The very first trailer for Damien Chazelle‘s La La Land has arrived online ahead of its debut at next month’s Venice Film Festival.

If the trailer is anything to go on, we’re in for a bit of a treat here. Here’s the synopsis.

Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a jazz musician, scraps by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to frail the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

J.K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sonoya Mizuno, Hemky Madera, Josh Pence and John Legend also star.

The film will be released in the Us on December 2nd, and the United Kingdom in early 2017 on January 17th. »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone try to make it big in the first trailer for La La Land

13 July 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

After seeing (and loving) Whiplash, we knew we would follow director Damien Chazelle wherever he went. And it seems he’s gone to the epicenter of the movie world itself for his next film La La Land.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone reunite in what looks to be a very charming and beautiful look at Los Angeles in the new trailer, which is soundtracked by an original song by Gosling. La La Land follows a young couple who struggle to make it in the entertainment industry, and they experience all the highs and lows that come with it.

Whiplash blew our minds in every way possible, so we can’t wait to see what kind of wild emotional ride Chazelle has got in store for us this time around. J.K. Simmons, John Legend, and Finn Wittrock also star in La La Land, and it’s looking like it will be »
