After his incredible film debut with 2014’s Whiplash, fans were extremely excited to learn that writer-director Damien Chazelle’s next project would be a musical titled La La Land with the likes of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone starring in the film. La La Land was originally slated for a Summer 2016 release date but was pushed back to December, most likely in the hopes of having better chances at the Academy Awards. Now after a long wait, the first teaser trailer for the film has hit the web. Check it out below.
In this modern take on the Hollywood musical from Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-nominated writer and director of “Whiplash,” Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. 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 hits theaters on December 2, 2016.
