After providing enthralling hits like Whiplash (his first movie) and La La Land (his second one), Damien Chazelle is all set to return to box-office with his fourth direction Babylon. The young director took the box-office with a storm with two sensational movies. However, his third movie First Man gave an average performance. While he has been the writer for his previous film, the latter was only directed by him. But, Babylon will be written and directed by him.
The highly anticipated movie will be distributed worldwide by Paramount Pictures and is set to release during the 2021 Christmas movie season.
The details of the movie have been quite under the wraps, and very little has been revealed about its production. It is reported that the film will feature an all star-studded cast. Here’s everything we know about the release, cast and plot of Babylon
Babylon: When Will It Release?
Paramount Pictures has revealed that the movie will get a limited release on December 25, 2021, and will feature worldwide on January 7, 2022. However, we are waiting for an official confirmation if this the case. Chazelle and his crew have been quite-lipped regarding its production, cast and other details. However, we have tried to scour out some information to quench your thirst about Babylon.
According to reports, the movie will feature an ensemble cast with Emma Stone and Brad Pitt in the lead. This will be Chazelle’s second collaboration with Stone, and we are looking forward to it.
Other actors reported to feature in the film are Meryl Streep, Tobey Maguire and Michael B. Jordan. Emma Stone will portray Clara Bow, an iconic film star and Brad Pitt will be seen as John Gilbert. However, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Babylon: What Is The Storyline?
Like we mentioned before that very little has been revealed about the movie details.
The narrative of Babylon will follow the transition from silent films to talkies.
Similar to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’, the movie will see both fictional and real characters.
It will portray the Golden Age of Hollywood. It would be quite interesting to watch if Chazelle will be able to do justice to the critically acclaimed silent film era.
The mixture of two film eras to sketch out Hollywood’s tremendous success would be exciting.
Witnessing a movie of such a reputed director has always been a pleasure for movie fanatics and critics. Let’s see what new does this director brings in his 4th movie.
