Paramount Pictures has released the debut trailer for the highly anticipated Babylon from Oscar-winning writer and director Damien Chazelle.
Set in 1920s Los Angeles, Babylon tells a tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, tracing the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood. The film stars an all-star ensemble cast that includes Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, Jean Smart, Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, P.J. Byrne, Lukas Haas, Olivia Hamilton, Tobey Maguire, Max Minghella, Rory Scovel, Katherine Waterston, Flea, Jeff Garlin, Eric Roberts, Ethan Suplee, Samara Weaving, and Olivia Wilde.
The film is written and directed by Damien Chazelle, known for his Academy Award-winning films Whiplash, La La Land, and First Man. The tagline for Babylon is “always make a scene,” and the film comes out of the gate doing just that with this first trailer showcasing the grandiose nature of Hollywood.
Babylon will have a limited release in theaters on December 25, 2022 with a wide release scheduled for January 6, 2023.
