Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie Ring in the Era of Talkies for Damien Chazelles Epic Ode to Old Hollywoo ...

Thanks to Oscar winner Damien Chazelle, Hollywood's lush landscape has received a modern A-lister makeover.

Babylon, starring Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, is slated for a limited release on December 25, 2018, and a wide release on January 6, 2023, making it a buzzed-about Oscar winner.

The narrative of the time focuses on the transitional period in the film industry when silent films became talkies. Robbie plays Nellie LaRoy, an amalgam of early talkies actors, including Clara Bow, Jeanne Eagels, John Crawford, and Alma Rubens, according to Vanity Fair.

Robbies Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Oscar-winning co-star Pitt plays Jack Conrad, an aging uber-movie star inspired by John Gilbert, Clark Gable, and Douglas Fairbanks.

Samara Weaving, Li Jun Li, Katherine Waterston, Olivia Wilde, Spike Jonze, Jean Smart, Lukas Haas, Jovan Adepo, Tobey Maguire, Diego Calva, and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea are also included in the ensemble cast. Studios executive Irving Thalberg is the only real-life figure included in the historical fiction film.

Babylon is an original epic set in Los Angeles in the 1920s, led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Diego Calva, with an ensemble cast including Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, and Jean Smart. Throughout this period of unbridled decadence and misery, it chronicles multiple characters' rises and fall.

During the Paramounts showcase at 2022 CinemaCon, viewers got a first look at the lavish world of Babylon. Chazelle explained that the epic, multi-character drama has been 15 years in the making. After 2018's First Man, he finally penned the screenplay and hired the La La Land Oscar-winning cinematographer Linus Sandgren to join.

The things that they are constructing are breaking down and tearing them apart. Chazelle explains that she wanted to capture how big and bold and unapologetic this world was.

Bablyon, according to Chazelle, is the most difficult thing I've ever done in terms of logistics, scale, and beauty.

Chazelle mentioned in the film that everything is shifting beneath people's feet. I became fascinated by the human cost of disruption at that scale, at a time when there was no roadmap, when everything was all new and wild.

Babylon will be released for a limited release on December 25 and will be released for a wider release on January 6, 2023.
