Continuing on with their huge batch of first looks (which have included Arms and the Dudes, Bourne 5, The Girl on the Train and many more), EW has now brought us the first photo of of Damien Chazelle’s Los Angeles-set love story/musical La La Land, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a musician and struggling actress who fall for each other.
As you can see from the image above, the two leads are singing and dancing against a beautiful sunset, emulating the classic Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals. It doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what to expect from the plot, but it’s a welcome look at the highly-anticipated third effort from Chazelle.
After greatly impressing audiences with Whiplash, all eyes are on the director to see if he can deliver again. It’s still a bit too early to say if he’ll be able to, but with the electrifying chemistry between Stone and Gosling that we’ve seen in previous films aiding him in front of the camera, we don’t suspect Chazelle will have too much trouble recapturing the magic that he found with his last feature.
La La Land hits theatres on July 15th, 2016. Supporting Gosling and Stone are J.K. Simmons, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, and John Legend.
