There’s no doubt the world has been anxiously awaiting the film La La Land since its trailer was first released earlier this year. With it’s arrival in theaters this weekend we’re counting down the reasons why we’re so excited to see this film.

1. The Buzz.

La La Land had its world premiere this past August at the Venice Film Festival and since then has been buzzed about by critics and fans alike who praise Damien Chazelle’s unique direction and talented performers who sing and dance their way through the musical numbers.

2. The Cast.

Everyone’s favorite on-screen duo Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, who have played love interests twice before in Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid Love are reunited once again in La La Land. The two starlet love birds are joined by an equally impressive cast including John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, J. K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, and more.

3. It’s a musical. And a film.

La La Land seems to have already solidified its place in musical film history alongside the greats like Singin’ in the Rain, Chicago, and Les Misérables. I mean, just look at that dip.

4. The Creative Team.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the dynamic Broadway writing team behind Dear Evan Hansenwhich you can see now on Broadway), wrote the lyrics for La La Land, along with Justin Hurwitz who composed the music.
