It’s fall, which means some of the year’s best films will finally be arriving in theaters. Alongside the likes of Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, and Arrival, La La Land is one of the most-acclaimed features of 2016 and now we have a new trailer ahead of a release next month. Damien Chazelle‘s Whiplash follow-up stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, centering on a jazz pianist who falls for an aspiring actress. This new trailer adds more dialogue than before, showing off more chemistry between our leads, and it simply looks magical.

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

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.


La La Land hits theaters on December 2nd and will expand wide on December 16th.
