If you happen to be a fan of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, one of your most anticipated 2013 releases has got to be Only God Forgives, his next collaboration with Ryan Gosling which also appears to be another gritty and violent thriller. Before that hits theatres, however, we’ll get to see Gosling reteam with Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance in The Place Beyond the Pines… a crime drama that also seems suspiciously similar to Drive.
Once again Gosling is playing a stuntman who moonlights as a criminal, although in this case he seems to be doing it mostly out of desperation… plus he rides a motorcycle instead of driving a car! The movie also co-stars Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne, Dane DeHaan and Ray Liotta and it premiered last year at TIFF. Although I didn’t hear all that much about it, it was quickly snapped up by Focus Features, and they will be releasing it in select theatres on March 29th. The first trailer arrived online just after Christmas; check it out after the jump and let us know what you think!
