The New ‘La La Land’ Trailer Is Simply Dazzling

Try not to smile

As if you needed another reason to fall head over heels in love with La La Land, here's a new trailer.

The film festival darling of a movie has been wowing critics with its originality and top-shelf performances from Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. It's a throwback musical set in modern-day Los Angeles. Stone plays an aspiring actor while Gosling steps into the role of a jazz musician. The meet-cutes run aplenty while romance blossoms and dreams are chased.

With Academy Award-nominated director Damien Chazelle at the helm, the question of whether a movie musical will succeed in winning audiences is all but answered with a resounding, "Yes!" Early reviews of the movie have left critics charmed. Joe McGovern at Entertainment Weekly considers it to be "this season’s most dazzling movie experience." It's a bold move, but the world could use some originality and optimism. Good thing La La Land looks like it's brimming with both.

La La Land hits theaters this December.
