"Here's to the hearts that ache..." Oh my goodness. Lionsgate has unveiled the second official teaser trailer for Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land, and it's just as wonderful as the first one. La La Land stars Emma Stone as an aspiring actress who falls for a jazz pianist, played by Ryan Gosling, while in the City of Angels, better known as Los Angeles. Like the first teaser, this trailer is set to one of the magnificent songs from the film, titled "Audition", and it will thankfully be available to download later this fall. The full cast includes J.K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sonoya Mizuno, Hemky Madera, Josh Pence and John Legend. That scene in the planetarium looks like it's going to be so totally amazing.

James Franco and Seth Rogen, the creative duo behind such cult comedy hits as The Interview and This is the End, are Hollywood bound in the first trailer for Zeroville, a biting satirical period romp hailing from Franco himself.
It’s pitched as his most ambitious directorial effort to date, and after clocking eyes on the extensive first trailer, we’re inclined to believe those claims. Featuring a host of regular faces in Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Craig Robinson, Will Ferrell and Danny McBride, Zeroville is set against the Tinsel Town of ’69 where Ike “Vikar” Jerome stars out on a journey that offers up tragedy and discovery in equal measure.
Placing a laser focus on celebrity culture and all things Hollywood, Seth Rogen is on board as a character known as Viking Man – “gatekeeper to all the right parties, a cigar-chomping surf hippie; Vikar’s eccentric Hollywood guide” – while the »

After adapting William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy, what looks to be James Franco‘s most ambitious directorial effort yet is an adaptation of Zeroville, based on Steve Erickson‘s book, which serves as a dark parody of the New Hollywood movement. Now the first sales trailer, clocking in at over four minutes, has landed.
The story focuses on Ike “Vikar” Jerome, who has just moved to Hollywood in 1969. With tattoos of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor on his head, his journey “ends in both tragedy and discovery.” The book features many New Hollywood icons, such as Robert De Niro, Brian De Palma, John Milius and Paul Schrader, with the ghost of Clift even showing up.
However, outside of the cast — including Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Craig Robinson, Will Ferrell and Danny McBride — in terms of filmmaking icons, the first trailer only features a Wim Wenders cameo, which makes »

Dog Eat Dog, the all-new collaboration between director Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage, is yet to nail down a release date to call its own, but that hasn’t prevented Arclight Films from drumming up excitement.
Buoyed by the movie’s appearance at Cannes earlier in the year – where it divided critics right down the middle – today brings forth a new trailer for the mob thriller, introducing moviegoers to Cage and Willem Dafoe’s partners in crime.
Above all else, the one thing that has us most excited for Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage’s latest is the fact that the former holds full creative control over Dog Eat Dog – news that ought to offset fears that Schrader and Cage are in for another disaster in the vein of The Cold Dying of the Light.
Released via Lionsgate two years ago, the feature was a textbook example of studio meddling gone awry, »

"You don't know where its tongue's been." Drafthouse Films has unveiled the full theatrical Us trailer for the film Klown Forever, the sequel to Danish comedy Klovn: The Movie about two awkward friends who go on a canoe trip together. This next one reunites co-stars and best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, who take a trip to Los Angeles this time around to seek fame and glory in Hollywood.

Los Angeles continues to decline as a desirable place to shoot television pilots, according to new survey results. Film L.A.’s 2016 Pilot Production Report states that 201 broadcast, cable and digital pilots were produced during the 2015-16 development cycle, and just 79 of those were filmed in L.A., a 13 percent drop from 2015, when 91 of 200 pilots were filmed here. According to the La Times, this marks the first time less than 40 percent of TV pilots have been filmed in the City of Angels, and is especially staggering when compared to 10 years ago, when L.A. represented 82 percent of »

Daniel Crooke here. For the past two weeks, I've walled myself off from any pop cultural offering that doesn't include the letters Lgbt while working around the clock at Outfest Los Angeles, our seminal, international queer film festival here in the City of Angels. Naturally the only external filmic force strong enough to infiltrate this border includes the words Winona Ryder. Slay, queen, slay.
I too have taken a long, hungry taste of the ananchronistic (and extra-colorful) Kool-Aid that is Netflix's '80s-set Stranger Things, the sci-fi outing that investigates a humdrum Indiana small town as a local young 'un mysteriously disappears in their midsts without warning. Much has been made of the homage-heavy layers that bake into its Spielbergian, Carpenteresque, Lynchian, and Stephen King-adjacent baklava; although the reason it succeeds beyond the hat-tip recipe can be found within the rich, nitty gritty filling of its heart-achingly true familial dynamics, »

Their third team up after Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling take the lead in La La Land, director David Chazelle’s highly anticipated follow-up to Whiplash. A contemporary musical which tells the love story between struggling actress Mia (Stone) and jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling) set against the backdrop of the City of Angels. The first trailer is here, giving us a look at this ambitious throwback to musicals of old, as well as showcasing the first single from the film, City of Stars, snag by Gosling himself. While it’s certainly a change of pace from Whiplash, La La Land looks utterly fantastic, echoing the lush colours and imagery from the numerous classics starring the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, all the while feeling refreshingly modern. Released: 16th December (U.S.)/13th January 2017 (Irl/U.K.) »

"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. Here's the first official trailer for Damien Chazelle's La La Land, originally from EW.com: The song heard in the trailer, titled "City »

A movie starring two YouTubers will make its money back in iTunes sales, regardless of its quality. That may sound like a good thing, but it’s not if you’re an online content creator looking to transition into traditional Hollywood projects and shake your reputation as a one-trick pony. Speaking from the sixth VidCon, the annual convention for digital content creators and their fans, creator Jimmy Wong is uncertain about his and others’ crossover prospects.
“It’s really hard to transition YouTube stars into traditional acting roles,” says Wong, who rose to YouTube fame with his viral hit “Ching Chong! Asians in the Library Song” — a timely response to an ugly, racist video rant.

The Independence Day weekend tends not to be a big one for specialized audiences. Upscale viewers, particularly in the biggest cities, often pursue other interests, many of them out of town. But prime theaters still need new product, offering opportunities for new releases to take their shot.
The best among the limited openers this weekend was the Polish-French nun story “The Innocents” (Music Box), bucking the recent trend of weak subtitled films. Next best among the limited new releases was the heart-tugging Sundance autism documentary “Life, Animated” (The Orchard) which nonetheless opened a little below some other recent docs.
The limp second week expansion of “Swiss Army Man” (A24) showed »

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and when that eye belongs to Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, it's a trait to both admire and fear. His breakthrough film, Bronson (2008), featured Tom Hardy's celebrity super-prisoner cavorting violently through visually stunning sets; in Drive (2011), Ryan Gosling curb-stomps an enforcer's head in an immaculately-lit elevator; and Only God Forgives (2013) embeds its stabbings and brutal assaults in a eye-popping version of Bangkok at midnight. And the attraction/repulsion idea of beauty itself is at the center of his latest work The Neon Demon, »

For his latest edition of the beloved Late Late Show segment, James Corden hit the road with six-time Grammy winners, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, for a ride worthy of its late-night time slot. As they cruised through the bands greatest hits, including classics like "Californication," "City of Angels" and "Give It Away," the band immediately got comfortable in Corden's car, so much so that at one point, lead singer Anthony Kiedis, bass player Flea and Corden stripped out of their shirts in solidarity. "As soon as I took the top off, it made me feel great," the host admitted after finishing an enthusiastic solo for "The Zephyr Song." It seems »

Even native Angelenos may have trouble keeping up with the fast-changing nightlife in Culver City. Here are tips for visitors to the Los Angeles Film Festival, be they from Sao Paolo or Santa Monica.
Laff will open with “Lowriders,” a drama surrounding the re-emergence of SoCal low-rider Latino culture. “Opening Night,” a musical with N’Sync’s J.C. Chasez and Topher Grace, is quintessentially L.A., while documentary “Dying Laughing” features big-time comedians talking about what it’s like to bomb on stage. One senior programmer calls “Heis (Chronicles)” “the French ‘Tiny Furniture,’ ” referring to Lena Dunham’s indie debut.
Fest Goes West
Laff’s move to Culver City brings an added bonus with the historic Culver Hotel steps outside the main venue. Its nightly 4-7 happy hour gets crowded in the Grand Lobby, so arrive early for $9 cocktails, $6 beer/wine and eats under $10. By 8 p.m., live jazz fills the cavernous ceilings. »
