Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes star in The Place Beyond The Pines trailer
When THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, almost every critic was blown away. It received extremely high praise almost all around and was picked up by Focus Features. But most of us haven’t seen anything from the reteaming of Ryan Gosling and director Derek Cianfrance ( who previously worked together on BLUE VALENTINE) until now. The trailer promises an intense drama about a man (Ryan Gosling) that takes to robbing banks to support his son, but it doesn’t quite capture the epic scope the film promises, which looks at the lives of several people over a few decades. It’s still a great trailer and it looks like 2013 will once again be the year of Ryan Gosling.
THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES stars: Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Rose Byrne, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Dane DeHaan, Bruce Greenwood and Ben Mendelsohn. The Derek Cianfrance directed film hits theaters on March 29th, 2013. I find that to be an unfortunate release date for a film like this. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES could have success during awards season, but I’m afraid most critics will forget about it when it comes time for voting. Dumping it on the last weekend in March seems unfair.
