La La Land is easily one of the most popular films of 2016 so, it was only a matter of time before the film was given the “Honest Trailer” treatment.
Presenting ‘La La Land,’ a “tale of passion, love and ditching all that nonsense when your career takes off.”
The honest trailer for La La Land starts off, seemingly, like any other honest trailer would. The voice over mocks the movie musical or as they call it, “a tale of passion, love and ditching all that nonsense when your career takes off,” and “one of the most Oscar-nominated films of all time that will have future generations say, ‘A musical about show business? Well, no wonder the Academy lapped it up.'”
In the middle of the honest trailer, however, things take an unexpected turn reminiscent of the Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway Oscars Award for Best Picture flub. We now know the pair was given a card for the wrong category and, thus announced La La Land as the winner when, in fact, the real winner was Moonlight. We’re just not sure anyone told this trailer announcer of that mishap.
Check out the Honest Trailer below for La La Land… er-we mean, Moonlight.
