Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone Dream Big in New Trailer, Stills, and Posters for ‘La La Land’

Written by on November 17, 2016 


Considering that Damien Chazelle names the Jacques Demy masterpiece The Umbrellas of Cherbourg as perhaps his favorite film of all-time — and a clear-as-day influence on La La Land — it’s only fitting the latest trailer for his Los Angeles-set musical hails from France. Alongside a new preview for the film that stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, there’s also a batch of new stills, posters and the full cut of “City of Stars” to help hold one over for a just a few weeks until the theatrical release.

We said in our review, “There’s a great recurring gag in Whiplash director Damien Chazelle’s La La Land — a beautiful, audacious, aesthetically vibrant, and enchanting contemporary musical — when Ryan Gosling’s struggling musician, Sebastian, throws a few disparaging comments towards a samba/tapas joint that has taken the place of a legendary jazz club. Sebastian refers to this juxtaposition as a joke on history; La La Land is a film obsessed both with juxtapositions and jokes on history. It’s a twinkling surface examination of how humans try to coordinate their dreams with their reality (a very Hollywood conundrum), but also a celebration of just how wonderful old filmmaking techniques and emotions look and feel on modern L.A. streets.”

Check out everything below for the film also starring J.K. Simmons, John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rosemarie DeWitt.
