Synopsis

There’s a shift happening in Hollywood. For some, that means opportunity and a chance at a whole new type of stardom. For others, holding onto the past can only last so long. As silent movies give way to the new genre of the talkie, suddenly everything is changing. With this new technology comes new expectations of actors and producers alike. Between the glitz and glamour of the party lifestyle and the larger-than-life sets of the movies, the roaring twenties are a time of great change for a fading silent film star and an icon of the new era.

What to know

Babylon is an upcoming period drama movie written and directed by Academy Award-winner Damien Chazelle. Chazelle is the youngest person to win the Best Director award at the Oscars. Babylon is an original script by Chazelle, who teams up once again with cinematographer Linus Sandgren for the movie. Justin Hurwitz, who has scored and composed original music for each of Chazelle’s films, is also responsible for scoring Babylon.

The movie stars modern-day Hollywood icons Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. Babylon’s executive producer Tobey Maguire has a supporting role in the film, alongside Olivia Wilde, Samara Weaving, Li Jung Li, Max Minghella, Lukas Haas, Eric Roberts, Spike Jonze, Jeff Garlin and Flea.

Where to stream

Babylon is set for a wide release on December 23, 2023. While no streaming partner has been confirmed yet, it is likely that the film will be held back from streaming sites for a long theatrical release. It will likely be released on to Paramount+ given that Paramount Pictures will be handling its distribution but there has yet to be confirmation.
