This January Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt will reunite on the silver screen for the cinematic epic Babylon. After the official trailer was released in September, viewers have been treated to a further look at the film with new clips and interviews from the star-studded cast.
“Babylon is about a group of people who find themselves in early Hollywood at a time of extreme depravity and debauchery and excess,” explains writer and director Damien Chazelle. “It’s the biggest thing I’ve tried to do.”
Margot Robbie who plays Nellie LaRoy, a budding up-and-coming actress, described the period as “such an insane time… like the wild west.” She is joined by Pitt – her co-star from Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – who portrays Jack Conrad, the biggest film actor at the time.
Across 2 minutes we receive an introduction to fellow cast members and their characters including, Diego Calva, Li Jun Li, Tobey Maguire and the legendary Jean Smart. According to the official synopsis, Babylon is set in the 1920s in Los Angeles and follows the rise and fall of a group of characters during an era of outrageous excess.
For Australian viewers the film will release into theatres from January 19, 2023. And it may very well be one of Pitt’s last films after he revealed in a recent interview his plans to eventually retire. Speaking to GQ in June he said, “I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?”
