La La Land concert

La La Land In Concert: A Live-to-Film Celebration is coming to the Hollywood Bowl this summer. If you don’t live in Los Angeles, fret not my fellow La La Land fans: the concert will visit some major cities in the United States before making a few stops in Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, and other countries. However, La La Land‘s Academy Award-winning composer, Justin Hurwitz, is conducting the live shows at the Hollywood Bowl.

La La Land Featurette

Last weekend, La La Land won all of the Golden Globes it was nominated for, setting a new record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film with seven trophies taken home. There’s a good chance that the movie, including stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, will get plenty of Oscar nominations when they’re announced on January 24th too.

In the meantime, more and more people are seeing the musical now that it’s in wide release across the country. That means there’s no better time for a new La La Land featurette to show how director Damien Chazelle blended his love for classic musicals from decades ago with a contemporary romance set in the heart of Los Angeles.

Emma Stone Hosted Saturday Night Live

As the first of three episodes that will close out the end of 2016, Emma Stone hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the third time, and hopefully it’s an indication of a strong finish for the cast, writers and crew of the staple sketch show. A solid episode brought some great sketches, including the return of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and a cameo from one of the stars of Office Christmas Party, besides the SNL cast members who also star in the movie.

Emma Stone Auditioned for All That

This weekend, Emma Stone returns to Saturday Night Live to host the late night sketch show for a third time. However, she almost starred in an entirely different sketch comedy show much earlier in her career, one that would have had her crossing paths with a certain SNL cast member at a young age.

While appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 28-year-old actress revealed that she auditioned for the Nickelodeon kids sketch comedy show All That when she was 12 years old. Even though she didn’t end up getting the job, her audition sounds rather entertaining.

La La Land Featurette

Decades ago, musicals were all the rage in Hollywood.

Now Whiplash director Damien Chazelle is bringing back that classic style in the modern musical La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and a new featurette goes behind the scenes to show how they’re making it happen.

La La Land Song

As we’re winding down to the end of the year, there are still plenty of great movies to see in theaters, especially films that are looking for some awards attention early next year. One of those films also just happens to be one of my most anticipated movies of the year, and now we get a wonderful new piece of it.

The first song from the modern musical La La Land has just debuted online, and it’s a beautiful duet titled “City of Stars” sung by the film’s stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. It has a classic feel to it, and there are some beautiful moments that feel very candid and natural, helped by the fact that it doesn’t sound like a super polished studio recording.

Listen to the La La Land song “City of Stars” after the jump, and if you’re lucky, you might just see some new footage from the movie as well. Read More »
