It's finally happened: Emma Stone is singing on film!
In mid-July, we were pleasantly greeted by a trailer for La La Land featuring Ryan Gosling and the red-headed beauty. It had no dialogue, but rather, used the actor's original song "City of Stars" to play over a montage of clips from the upcoming film.
This time around, it's Stone's voice that serenades us with more of a sneak peek into what's sure to be one of our favorite romantic films in the future (if Crazy, Stupid, Love is any prior indication).
She sounds beautiful as she belts out the song "Audition" from the pic—which will premiere during the Venice Film Festival at the end of the month—bringing tears to our eyes as we watch her love with Gosling unfold in the form of music.
"Here's to the ones who dream/ Foolish as they may seem," Stone sings in the new trailer. "Here's to the hearts that ache/ Here's to the mess we make."
La La Land tells the story of aspiring actress Mia (Stone) who serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions, while dedicated jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling) plays in dingy bars in order to scrape by. Set in Los Angeles, the two fall in love but struggle to cope with the pressures of trying to make it big in Hollywood.
Throughout the two minute teaser, we watch as Stone appears frustrated with her current state, and Gosling works hard on the piano. Eventually, the two are seen taking the stage together, falling in love and portraying that in the spotlight. However, something ominous about the trailer tells us things might not last...
We'll have to wait and find out when the film hits theaters this December.
