A few weeks ago, we got a brief but captivating little teaser for La La Land, the upcoming musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and directed by Whiplash wunderkind Damien Chazelle.
That trailer was charming and beautiful, but the first time around we only got to hear Ryan Gosling belt out some lines. In this second trailer, however, we get to exclusively hear Emma Stone’s pipes as she sings a melancholy tune. Check it out:
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.
So there you have it. La La Land looks like a dreamy, magnificently-shot picture, and should draw in even the faintest of musical fans. Like me.
La La Land opens December 16.
