The first teaser trailer for Damien Chazelle's Hollywood epic Babylon begins with a snorting sound and ends with Margot Robbie's character offering to "fight a fucking snake". If there were any doubts about the "big, bold, brash" world the Oscar-winning director described to Vanity Fair about his new film, they have all been buried somewhere near the Hollywood sign.
"I just want everyone to party forever," says a wild-haired Margot Robbie, playing aspiring actress Nellie LaRoy, at the beginning of the film's first uncensored trailer. And much of the early footage fulfils her wish: Brad Pitt, who plays movie super star Jack Conrad, teases, in between firing guns and dancing in his underwear, "When I moved to L.A., there were signs on all the doors: 'No actors or dogs allowed'. I changed that."
As for Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, Damien Chazelle told Vanity Fair that "what was magical about working with them in these roles was that each of them felt like they were really able to make this performance the most personal thing they've ever done." The Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood co-stars are joined by newcomer Diego Calva, who plays Mexican immigrant and Hollywood outsider Manny Torres.
In this ode to the golden age of Hollywood, this trio is joined by an impressive cast including Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, Jean Smart, Flea, Samara Weaving, Max Minghella and Tobey Maguire. A five-star cast for this film that Damien Chazelle, who won Best Director for La La Land in 2016, considers "the hardest thing I've ever done".
Babylon will be released in French cinemas on 18 January 2023.
