The-Place-Beyond-The-Pines-Ryan-GoslingThe Place Beyond the Pines was far and away one of my favourite films debuting at TIFF this year – you can read our review here – with utterly brilliant leading performances from Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, and Dane DeHaan.

The film will be released in Spring 2013, and with just a few months before it arrives, Yahoo Movies have released an awesome first trailer, proving why it is a must-see film of 2013.

“Luke (Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Cooper) their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational fued. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a rich dramatic thriller that traces the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villain.”

Starring alongside Gosling, Cooper, and DeHaan is a fine supporting cast, headed up by Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Bruce Greenwood, Mahersala Ali, and Emory Cohen.

Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) is re-teaming with Gosling once more – and brilliantly so – having directed the film from his own script.

The Place Beyond the Pines will be given a limited release in the US on 29th March, 2013. Here in the UK, its release date is set for 12th April, and that really can’t come fast enough. I can’t wait to see this again. As I said above, it is very much a must-see film of 2013. Here’s the trailer to prove it.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
  • Gosling does have a thing for vehicles and crime, doesn’t he?
    The trailer looks good.

  • Kenji Lloyd

    He knows how to make crime look awesome, right?
    Very different film to Drive, but if you loved Drive, you’re all but guaranteed to love this.
    Can’t wait to see it again in April!
