The trailer for Hollywood epic Babylon is officially out – it looks like audiences are in for a real treat.

The much-hyped movie, set in 1920s Los Angeles, charts the rise of the film-making industry as 'silent films give rise to talkies'.

Directed by Damien Chazelle, the mastermind behind the Oscar-nominated La La Land, its cast – including Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Diego Calva – should be enough on its own to get audiences excited.

According to Deadline, Babylon is 'a tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood'.

The trailer shines a light on that depravity and decadence from very the opening scene, which shows Robbie's character giving an impassioned speech about wanting 'everyone to party forever'.

Pitt's character, by contrast, is introduced as being a wild and ambitious mega-star who at one point announces: “You know what we have to do? We have to redefine the form, map those dreams and print them into history. Look up and say: Eureka! I am not alone."

Babylon marks the welcomed return of director Chazelle, who hasn't been involved with a project since 2018's First Man – a more sombre biopic about the life of Neil Armstrong.

Chazelle told the TIFF audience yesterday, 12 September: “After the quietness of First Man, I wanted to do something boisterous and loud… We want to do away with pre-conceptions of the era.”

The film will also represent a fresh challenge for co-lead Brad Pitt, who is no stranger to movies about Hollywood's hey-day having previously starred in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Most recently, the 58-year-old delivered high-octane action in the form of Bullet Train, which has received rave reviews by audiences.

Alongside the three main co-stars, the cast also includes: Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, Jean Smart, P.J. Byrne, Lukas Haas, Olivia Hamilton, Tobey Maguire, Max Minghella, Rory Scovel, Katherine Waterston, Flea, Jeff Garlin, Eric Roberts, Ethan Suplee, Samara Weaving and Olivia Wilde.

Wilde returns to acting after the much-publicised release of Don't Worry Darling.

Meanwhile, UK film fans will seemingly have to wait until next year to watch Babylon.

The movie is slated for a limited release on Christmas Day in the US, but is set to arrive in UK cinemas on 20 January, 2023.
