The narrative of Babylon (2021) will follow the growth from silent films to talkies. The movie will see both fictional and real characters, similar to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’.
The novel will portray the Golden Age of Hollywood. It would be quite interesting to watch if Chazelle will be able to do justice to the critically acclaimed silent film era.

Insiders also said the studio was previously dated the film for a December 25, 2021 limited release, with planned to go wide on January 7, 2022.
But Paramount has pushed the movie’s release date back a full year to December 25, 2022 limited release, with a wide release on January 6, 2023, (in the United States) due to COVID conditions delaying filming.
Babylon (2021) is coming out in 2023 on January 6 in The United States.
Paramount will also put the movie on the festival circuit since it’s rare for a movie to debut in December without any festival presence and go on to win Best Picture.
