Although its synopsis seems pretty derivative (stunt driver by day/getaway driver by night gets caught up with the wrong people), everything we’ve seen of Drive so far appears to mark it out as anything but.

Ryan Gosling is on the up and up after Half Nelson, Blue Valentine and Crazy, Stupid, Love and clearly is more than capable of turning what could have been a cookie-cutter character into something more meaningful.

Similarly, director Nicolas Winding Refn is far from a hack for hire, having delivered the frankly bonkers but stylistically unique Valhalla Rising and now trying his hand at something seemingly a little more accessible. This latest international trailer (you can tell, cos it has French subtitles) doesn’t give us an awful lot that is new, but does show us a good deal of what to expect without seeming to give too much away.

Check it out, enjoy and give thanks to Coming Soon, the provider of this bounteous feast.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
