You Can Finally Bask in the ‘La La Land’ Earworm ‘City of Stars’

Pretty much since the first moment I saw the first teaser for La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s amazing new musical hitting theaters next month, I’ve been waiting for the soundtrack. Sometimes I’ve put on one of the film’s trailers to hear the music again. Other times I’ve caught myself humming some of the tunes while walking down the street, particularly the earworm “City of Stars,” sung by Ryan Gosling’s character. Via Variety, I now know when my suffering will end with the release date of the La La Land soundtrack (December 9) and, in the meantime, I can now listen to a duet version of “City of Stars” by Gosling and co-star Emma Stone, which is available on YouTube (and embedded above).

‘La La Land’ Trailer: A Magical Musical Tour Through Los Angeles

I guess there’s not much reason for me to watch the new La La Land trailer. I saw the movie back at the Toronto Film Festival. Why watch the coming attractions for a movie I’ve already seen? Frankly, I watched it (twice) because I want to see La La Land again, and I can’t right now, and watching the trailer is the next best option.

‘La La Land’ Review: The Old Hollywood Musical Gets New Life

by Matt Singer September 14, 2016 @ 10:15 AM
It would be inaccurate to say there’s never been a film like La La Land — there have been movies like it many times before — but it’s been a while. Movie musicals these days are mostly lifeless exercises in prestige and Broadway adaptation, The original movie musical — with songs writing explicitly for the screen — is about as rare a species as the South China tiger.

We’re Gaga Over the ‘La La Land’ Trailer

Just yesterday during a Periscope Q&A, someone asked me for my most anticipated movies of the fall. The clear #1 choice: La La Land, the latest film from Whiplash writer and director Damien Chazelle. One day later, the first teaser for the film is here, and I’m even more excited to see the movie, which opens later this fall following a premiere next month at the prestigious Venice Film Festival.

‘The Nice Guys’ Are as Boozy as a Railroad Hobo in This Charming Animated Promo

by Britt Hayes May 20, 2016 @ 5:48 PM
In keeping with the retro vibe (and setting) of The Nice Guys, the latest promo for Shane Black’s crime comedy reimagines the film as an old school animated series — the kind of thing you might have watched on CBS on a Saturday morning back in the ’70s. And while this promo is a little more kid-friendly, it’s still for a film that is most certainly not for kids (but it is for everyone else, and you should make time to see it this weekend).

‘The Nice Guys’ Review: Thanks to Shane Black, the Buddy Cop Movie Is Not Getting Too Old For This Stuff

by Matt Singer May 20, 2016 @ 10:06 AM
The Nice Guys opens with a shot of the Hollywood sign in 1977, dilapidated and covered with graffiti. While modern film nerds look back at that era as a kind of Golden Age, the Los Angeles of The Nice Guys is a place that has lost its luster. The town is swimming in smog and porn; it is literally and metaphorically dirty from top to bottom. The crumbling Hollywood sign is historically accurate, but it also makes a convenient symbol, not just of the place as it was, but as it still is — particularly at this time of year, when everything is based on something else and it sometimes feels like the studios are remaking movies that were just released a few weeks earlier.

Watch Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe Work Out Their Issues in ‘The Nice Guys’ Therapy Sessions

Warner Bros. has taken a pretty clever approach to marketing The Nice Guys, Shane Black's new dark comedy noir starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a mismatched pair of investigators. In keeping with that idea, these new video shorts feature Gosling and Crowe playing fictional versions of themselves, forced to attend couples therapy to work out their issues so they can more amicably promote the film together.
