After the wildly profitable La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle continues his cinematic obsession with Hollywood and cinema itself with new flick Babylon, an opulent exploration of Los Angeles in the course of the Jazz Age within the Nineteen Twenties, which noticed the transition from silent movies to the ‘talkies’. The very first trailer for Babylon arrived on-line at present, and reveals that Chazelle is holding nothing again in terms of conveying all the joy and extra of this era in Hollywood historical past. Have a watch beneath:
The trailer open with the Paramount brand disappearing to the sound of Margot Robbie’s aspiring actress Nellie LaRoy snorting, and solely will get wilder from there. There are rushing classic vehicles, champage bottles popping, extra coke-snorting, flashing cameras, swooping pictures of glamorous occasion sequences, rogue alligators, much more coke-snorting, and Brad Pitt’s getting older icon Jack Conrad dancing in his lingerie, all set to a bombastic jazz-infused rating. Oh, and Nellie fights a snake on the finish. How far more Hollywood hedonism might one ask for?
Different forged members embody Diego Calva, Jean Good, Li Jun Li, Tobey Maguire (additionally on exec producing responsibility), Samara Weaving and Katherine Waterston. Strap in, of us, as a result of Babylon seems like one helluva journey – and arrives in peak occasion season, with a restricted launch on 25 December, adopted by a large launch on 6 January 2023.
