Lionsgate has released a new "La La Land" trailer, featuring the original song, "Start a Fire," by John Legend.
The Los Angeles-set film, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as an artistic couple who fall in love, is nominated for seven Golden Globes and is also likely to pick up some Academy Awards nominations.
An homage to classic Hollywood musicals, "La La Land" hails from "Whiplash" writer-director Damien Chazelle, whose 2008 debut feature was a shoestring budget, black-and-white, Jazz-themed musical called "Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench."
Currently playing in theaters, "La La Land" has been performing considerably well at the box office, earning over 35 million in limited release.
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.
