Margot Robbie stars in “Babylon’ an aspiring actress who has already turned to drugs, and Brad Pitt is Hollywood’s biggest megastar. Both are tasked with directing a new epic film, but the lavish parties in the 1920s dream factory provide a welcome distraction. And so the Hollywood star Jack Conrad, embodied by Pitt, sometimes stumbles off the balcony drunk…
“Babylon’ takes place at a time when cinema was changing. The images began to speak, the silent film was replaced by the sound film. The transition cost many stars their careers. That already played an important role in “The Artist”, now Oscar winner Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”) will also address it in his film.
Much more is about the story of “Babylon – In the intoxication of ecstasy” not yet known. The trailer does indicate that Chazelle (“La La Land”) will bring us a veritable series of pictures. We also know that the director is telling a fictional story with completely fictional characters.
Alongside Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, who already dived into Hollywood history (only partially fictionalized there) for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood”, the Mexican Diego Calva can be seen as the third main actor. who should be known to some of you mainly from the Netflix series “Narcos: Mexico”.
Other roles include Katherine Waterston, Olivia Wilde, Samara Weaving, Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li, Max Minghella, Jean Smart and “Spider-Man” Tobey Maguire.
In the US comes “Babylon“ in the first cinemas at the end of December 2022 in order to meet the regulations for the Oscars 2023. The big start will not take place until January, and shortly afterwards it will also happen in Germany: “Babylon – In the intoxication of ecstasy“ starts in Germany on January 19, 2022.
