Amazingly, this is the first honest to goodness green band trailer for the Ryan Gosling caper flick “Drive”. This, after we’ve already gotten a ton of images, two clips, and a Red Band trailer for the movie. I honestly have no idea what the folks at FilmDistrict are doing in terms of promotion with this movie. The film itself is opening September 16th, and hopefully we’ll get a somewhat wide release outside of the two coasts.
Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).
After a heist intended to pay off Standard’s protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they’re coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.
Step behind the wheel with Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, with Nicolas Winding Refn directing.
