Less than two years after his seminal breakout film Whiplash, which earned numerous Oscar considerations including a Best Supporting Actor award for star JK Simmons, director Damien Chazelle has returned with his next feature - a noticeably different yet still visually similar musical La La Land.

Premiering at the Venice Film Festival at the end of August, La La Land features frequent co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as the star-captured lovers in Los Angeles. Gosling plays a musician (which he incidentally is) and Emma Stone plays a struggling actress (not so much in real life) in the musical, which also features; John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe, Tom Everett Scott, and Josh Pence.

Check out the first teaser for the Golden Age of Hollywood throwback below. La La Land is set for limited release December 9th and wide-release December 16th.
