Damien Chazelle's La La Land is a smash hit. The musical throwback to the Golden Age of cinema has banked nearly $300 million at the worldwide box office. It recently picked up 14 Oscar nominations, tying a record in that field held by Titanic and All About Eve. And we fully expect the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone-led romance to do very well at the Academy Awards, possibly even taking home the evening's top prize.
But you want to know when you will be able to enjoy La La Land in the comfort of your own home... so that you can belt out your own rendition of Emma Stone's "Audition" without disrupting people in a movie theater. We have your back. La La Land is one of those movies that likely will stay in theaters longer after doing well at the Oscars. It's a big-screen experience that even takes advantage of IMAX presentation, so we expect it to stay on IMAX screens for a while. But when it comes to home video and streaming, here's what you will need to know:
When Will La La Land Reach DVD?
La La Land's DVD and Blu-ray release date has been announced. The movie will street on April 25, according to Amazon. You can pre-order your copy of the Oscar-winning musical by clicking here.
At the moment, Apple's La La Land page on iTunes has reviews and a link to the movie's soundtrack. But there's no information on a possible streaming date for the movie, leading us to believe that it will stay in theaters after the Oscars, so as to capitalize on the publicity and hype to sell more movie tickets... BEFORE they also sell DVD copies of the magical film.
Will La La Land Come To Netflix Streaming?
Likely. OnDVDReleases.com is stating man unofficial release date of May 9, 2017 for the film's Netflix and Redbox releases, but those should be taken with a grain of salt.
Damien Chazelle burst on the scene with Whiplash, which cast Miles Teller as a struggling N.Y. jazz drummer who runs into a buzzsaw of an instructor, played maliciously by JK Simmons. For his follow up film, La La Land, Chazelle crosses the country and lands in sunny California for a dreamer's tale about making it in show business. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are intoxicating as star-crossed lovers contemplating putting their dreams of stardom on hold to see if they can make their relationship work. The trailer is below:
We'll continue to keep you posted on La La Land streaming and home video options as they become available.
