    From Damien Chazelle, Babylon is an original epic set in 1920s Los Angeles led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, with an ensemble cast including Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li and Jean Smart. A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood.

    The rest of the cast includes Tobey Maguire, Olivia Wilde, Samara Weaving, Jean Smart, Li Jun Li, Jovan Adepo, Katherine Waterston, Flea, Lukas Haas, Rory Scovel, P.J. Byrne, Spike Jonze, Chloe Fineman, Jeff Garlin, and Max Minghella.

    Babylon is set for an 20th January 2023 UK and Irish cinema release (6th January 2023 in the U.S)

    Tobey Maguire seems to be slowly coming off the unoffical blacklist by the looks of it with Spiderman and now this.

    Possibly, but also being too much of an ásshole IIRC? Hollywood can put up with that kind of thing as long as you're certified to put bums on seats.

    As to the movie? Looks "maximalist", going by the trailer anyway. Not entirely sure I could stomach a whole movie operating at that registers, but I'd welcome the challenge.

    I never heard anything about Tobey being difficult to work with, is he still best mates with Leo?

    Saw this last night and its gonna take some time for it to percolate I reckon. Its Damein Chazelle channeling Paul Thomas anderson channeling Robert altman. Margot Robbie is very good(as she always is). Brad pitt is also good, but some of the scenes just go on way too long. The movie as a whole did not need to be over 3 hours, the job could've been done an dusted in two. I loved whiplash and La la land is one of my favorites films but this..........I'm just not so sure it worked.

    That is one strange film, fantastic in places, dumb ass stupid in others.

    Margo Robbie was excellent in this but thats really all the movie had going for it as far as i could see.

    What a mess. Didnt enjoy it at all. The first 20 minutes were quite good but after that it was a total car crash. Some may say its meant to be a car crash I suppose. but its sh1t car crash :)
