Damien Chazelle’s next big project has finished filming, and it’s got your friendly-neighborhood actor Tobey Maguire in it! Babylon is Chazelle’s epic period piece movie, paying an ode to a revolutionary age in Hollywood when it shifted from the silent movies of say, Charlie Chaplin, to the diametrically opposed sound movies i.e talkies during the 1920s.

The last movie that Chazelle worked on was the Ryan Gosling-led biographical movie called First Man, aa mostly silent movie This time around, Chazelle plans on shifting up the gears in the ‘loudness of a movie’ area with Babylon, and it’s got a stellar cast that will also have Tobey Maguire, the face of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

The trailer for Babylon gives us an exciting look into what the movie will be like as it shows us a fictional depiction of Hollywood’s transition into sound movies.

From what we can gather after seeing the trailer, it seems like Chazelle’s characters won’t always be putting on a smile throughout the movie, just like in his previous works. Here’s a look at the trailer-

As we can see, there is a lot of substance use in the movie. While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Chazelle gave his opinion on what life in that era was like for the movie industry peeps, and about the sheer amount of drugs they all did-

“It was about capturing the spirit of that time, which was a lot more Wild West. They are building a city and industry from scratch, and to do that you need a certain kind of crazy person. I don’t think it is surprising that the people that did that did a lot of drugs and partied a lot.”

Filming for the movie was wrapped up around October of last year, and we can only think of how crazy it must’ve been to film all that cocaine-snorting fiesta we saw in the trailer.
