Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt may have starred together in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but the two are pairing up once again for another movie about the golden era of cinema.
Babylon is set to come out later next month, and we have a new trailer showcasing the dark side of old Hollywood. Watch this:
From Damien Chazelle, Babylon is an original epic set in 1920s Los Angeles led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, with an ensemble cast including Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li and Jean Smart. A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood.
The movie comes from director Damien Chazelle who is best known for his movies Whiplash and La La Land. With La La Land considered to be an ode to the entire entertainment industry, we should probably expect Babylon to be the same thing, but instead of a romance between two charismatic leads, we have what looks to be a dark dive what happened behind the cameras when they were shooting movies back in the early days of the movie industry.
Though I’m not expecting Babylon to be a true story, I think a lot of the stories around the characters were based on real-life figures. Despite the height of the conservative era around the 20s, you can just imagine what they kept hidden when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Babylon is set hit theaters on Dec. 23.
