Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan star in the impressive Drive trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Even after it debuted at Cannes to rave reviews and eventually won Nicolas Winding Refn the award for best director, I still wasn’t looking forward to this film. DRIVE is about a Hollywood stunt driver that moonlights as a getaway driver for bad guys. But he gets attached to his neighbor and decides to help her ex-con husband out of a jam. Let’s be honest with each other for a second; if the film had this plot, starred Dwayne Johnson and was directed by George Tillman Jr., we’d all be making fun of this. But instead, it stars Ryan Gosling and is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and after finally seeing the first trailer, I can say that this looks really impressive.
Along with Gosling, the film stars Carey Mulligan, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks and Bryan Cranston. If you haven’t already, I’d go ahead and move this to the top of your must-see list when it opens everywhere on September 16th.
