Brad Pitt’s Latest Update: Babylon

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie reunite again in 2022’s Babylon. The movie has a pretty big cast with Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, and many others. The film portrays the decay, depravity, and scandalous excess leading up to the rise and fall of many ambitious dreamers in 1920s Hollywood. Damien Chazelle directed this movie to absolute perfection according to multiple critic reviews and comments. Chazelle commented that directing Babylon was one of the most challenging things he ever did.

“Just the logistics of it, the number of characters, the scale of the set pieces, the span of time that the movie charts — it all conspired to make it particularly challenging, but it was a challenge that was pretty exciting to take on”
