Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are starring in a new movie musical that looks absolutely beautiful
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are two of Hollywood's hottest - and most likeable - young stars.
They've already acted alongside one another before - in the 2011 romantic comedy Crazy Stupid Love, the movie that gifted the world this amazing image (the 'gif' that keeps on giving, if you will).
Emma spoke for all of us that time.
Now the two stars have teamed up again for the musical La La Land, which just premiered at the Venice Film Festival to the kind of rave reviews that successful Oscar campaigns are built upon.
It's an old-fashioned musical, directed by the red hot Damien Chazelle, whose previous film was the incredible drumming drama Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and JK Simmons.
“Whether it is a dazzling song and dance opening set in a massive traffic jam on an L.A. freeway, or a spectacular sequence with Gosling and Stone flying high into the skies of the Griffith Observatory the musical numbers soar with their own vibrancy and urgency. We live in hard times but this is a movie worth savouring, something that entertains, enlightens and makes us feel good about being alive. It is not to be missed by anyone who still cares for the future of the American musical.”
There's even talk that Stone, in particular, could become the frontrunner for next year's Best Actress Oscar.
You can watch the teaser trailer for the movie here:
La La Land will be screened during the BFI London Film Festival next month, if you happen to be in London at the start of October. Otherwise, it looks like we'll have to wait until after Christmas to see it on general release here.
