Damien Chazelle’s historical drama Babylon, set in Old Hollywood, has released its debut teaser, offering viewers their first glimpse at the diverse group of up-and-coming actors. The movie examines the commotion that results as performers, directors, and others attempt to adjust to the new atmosphere against the backdrop of the entertainment industry shifting as silent films give way to talkies. The wacky lives of these creatives and the city and business they are involved with are explored, as the teaser suggests.
As Robbie’s Hollywood prospect snorts coke, gets wasted, and wrecks havoc with Pitt’s Hollywood icon, the trailer is humming with life and jazz. It’s an incredibly outrageous recreation of vintage Hollywood, and it’s really entertaining.
The production of Babylon was finished in October 2021, and by all accounts, it was a huge undertaking for director Damien Chazelle and his ensemble. One of the production’s staff members, Bryan Mendoza, referred to it as one of the more difficult movies he had ever worked on. For Chazelle, it’s been a long time coming. In a recent interview, he claimed that he had been holding onto the concept for around 15 years since he arrived in Los Angeles. After finishing The First Man in 2018, he finally had the chance to start working on the project with the intention of creating a love letter to the early years of contemporary Hollywood. His critically acclaimed films Whiplash and La La Land have helped him establish himself as a director in the years since his relocation, preparing the path for his epic Old Hollywood story.
Chazelle has a vast ensemble full of many current stars to slot in to play all the Hollywood luminaries of old. Brad Pitt, Max Minghella, and Olivia Wilde are all featured in the movie’s cast.
Emma Stone was initially intended to co-star with Pitt, but a schedule hiccup allowed Robbie to join the cast. Babylon has a substantial current length of three hours and five minutes due to its numerous larger-than-life characters and the total span of the picture.
Paramount will release Babylon in select cinemas on December 25 before making it widely available on January 6, 2023. See Chazelle’s film’s expansive scope in the trailer down below.
