'La La Land' Getting an IMAX Release
La La Land is riding a wave of hype all the way to the Oscars. Damien Chazelle's follow-up to Whiplash is being thrown plenty of praise, and now it's headed to the biggest screen there is. IMAX has announced a run for the film in IMAX launching from January 13 in the U.S.
The film follows Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are both struggling to make ends meet in modern day Los Angeles. The musical follows the joys and pains of pursuing your dreams.
“The beautiful presentation of ‘La La Land’ in IMAX took my breath away,” said director Damien Chazelle. “I cannot wait for audiences to see the work of all the talented crafts-people who helped bring this story to life — the music, sound, production design, costumes, performances — everything explodes in IMAX.”
“‘La La Land’ is a beautiful and entertaining love letter to old-school Hollywood made with a clear passion for the movies, and what better way to savor the music and unique visual style of Golden Globes-nominated ‘La La Land’ than in the most immersive movie-going experience possible — in IMAX,” adds Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. “We are excited to work again with our friends and partners at Lionsgate, as well as the incredibly talented writer/director Damien Chazelle in bringing this crowd-pleasing film to IMAX audiences around the world."
