'La La Land' duo Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling cement mark in Hollywood

Ryan Gosling joked he thought he would be arrested for vandalism as he and Emma Stone had their hand and foot prints immortalised in cement in Los Angeles.

Chazelle's cheery and infectious throwback makes no bones about it either from tongue-in-check "Filmed in Cinemascope" title card to final fade out. She gives him the finger.

Some people resist musicals because in real life, people never break out into song; they just speak their feelings. "But I'm going to take your word for it that we're allowed to do this", said Gosling, who was nominated for a best actor Oscar for Half Nelson (2006). She is transfixed. He is fired.

While part of "La La Land" is pure confection - Chazelle's beautifully envisioned tribute to musicals of the past - the other is a smartly crafted commentary on 21st-century love that has an indie feel to it. "That's the worst time to meet a potential love interest". And then, after another party, he chivalrously walks her to her auto, and they begin to like each other - so much that they swing into a cheeky song and dance about how much they don't. Gosling grins: "If they'll let us".

Rosberg stuns Formula One with retirement bombshell
The likelihood is that Rosberg will be replaced by Pascal Wehrlein, who has come up through the Mercedes young drivers' programme. Rosberg won 23 races (tied for 12th all-time) and 30 pole positions (8th) from 206 races since his debut in 2006.

- seasons signify the highs and lows in Mia and Sebastian's seemingly idyllic relationship.

Chazelle's deep and spacious romanticism includes the city and its dreamers and music and movies and love itself.

Did you struggle like Mia to make it?

Billboard caught up with the songwriters of "La La Land", Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and they talked about what it was like to hear both Stone and Ryan Gosling sing. Paul shared that he and Pasek have always been both Broadway and radio listeners and that good pop writing has been an interest for them that is why they incorporated that in their new Broadway show "Dear Evan Hansen".

Dominators brainwash Oliver in crossover episode
The catalyst for all these superheroes teaming up is, quite appropriately, something as big as an alien invasion . News, "I think the way it came about was we all collectively wanted the superheroes to face an external threat".

There are tributes/references to classic films like "Singin' in the Rain", "Rebel Without a Cause", and "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg", but this movie is not derivative. There are far too many ambitious shots and memorable musical moments to single out each one, but a few that merit mention include a gravity-defying sequence at the Griffith Park Observatory, a six-minute continuous song-and-dance routine in the hills at dawn, and that unforgettable opening shot on the congested LA freeway. The storyline is deceptively simple, but the specificity of the detail, depth of understanding, and lovely performances create true movie magic. There's no actual dancing involved, but the way in which Gosling and Stone physically respond to the music and each other reveals them as ideal partners. I wanted in this movie, hopefully to say something about that state of mind.

I have seen Grease about 60,000 times (laughs).

"La La Land" is rated PG-13 for some language. Mia and Sebastian keep running into one another at pool parties and cliff-tops with twinkly nocturnal views. How did their support for each other's dreams change their careers?

But more imminently, he was this week "going off to the United States of America - but you will understand, purely as a tourist". But a 2020 election where Brexit has yet to be delivered and with Labour hesitant on immigration, could be fruitful for Ukip .
