Damien Chazelle’s exquisite ode to the Hollywood Golden Age – La La Land – is the frontrunner for big things at the Academy Awards, and having personally seen the movie, it is understandable why. You are going to adore it.
Arriving online today is a brand-new UK one-sheet for the Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling-led musical romance, which features more stars than the Los Angeles skyline itself. Eagle-eyed fans might also notice one small change: the date. Initially scheduled for release on 13th January in the UK – alongside Manchester by the Sea – Lionsgate have pushed the movie forward 24 hours, so it’ll now open on Thursday, 12th January. Perhaps the are superstitious and a Friday 13th release was a scary thought…
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
Lionsgate have also unveiled a special featurette entitled “The Music”, which sees director Chazelle, composer Justin Hurwitz and the cast and crew discussing the process of making the magical score for the film. Give it a while below.
