Ryan Gosling Serenades Emma Stone in 'La La Land' Trailer -- Watch Now!
By John Boone
If you saw Gangster Squad and thought, "This is great, but it could really use more singing and dancing!," then have we got a movie for you!
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone reunite for La La Land, a musical helmed by the Oscar nominated writer and director of Whiplash, Damien Chazelle. The trailer, which premiered on Wednesday, showcases Gosling singing a sweet jazz tune and is chock full of shots of Stone staring dreamily into the distance.
There's also lots of smooching and some dancing in the stars -- from this minute and a half alone, it's already the most romantic movie of the year! And your eyes don't deceive you, that is indeed John Legend.
If you're still not sure exactly what it's about, here's the official description:
"Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, 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."
Alongside the trailer, Gosling also drops his first sing. If you want to add "City Stars" -- that's the name of the song he sings in the trailer -- to your iTunes, you can download it here.
La La Land hits theaters on December 2.
Meanwhile, Stone went full-on '70s for her next film, channeling Billie Jean King opposite Steve Carell's Bobby Riggs in Battle of the Sexes. Check out her transformation in the video below.
