Last Summer we saw photos from the set of the new film The Place Beyond the Pines (HERE and HERE) and today we get to see the first official promo images for the flick. As you may know, Place stars Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper. Click below to check out two promo photos that feature bleach-blonde Gosling lookin’ like a badass on his motorbike and clean-cut Cooper in action as a hot cop.
Check out the leading men of Blue Valentine writer-director Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines, currently in post. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper co-star as a motorcycle-badass/bank robber and a cop/politician, respectively. Their lady loves are played by Eva Mendes and Rose Byrne. Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom) and Ray Liotta also co-star. It almost sounds too good to be true, but Gosling’s hair brings us down to reality. Cianfrance’s co-writer, Ben Coccio, has described the tone of the film as similar to The Deer Hunter and The Godfather. Cianfrance says: “It’s kind of a crime movie and it takes place over a couple of generations, and it’s definitely very epic in scope. I’m super pumped about doing it”
I’ve come to trust that any movie that Ryan Gosling is featured in is a movie that I must see in theaters. His performances are always fantastic, no matter the role. I’m not a big Bradley Cooper fan but Gosling’s inclusion in Place ensures that I will see it when it opens. I’m having a bit of a hard time with Ryan as a bleach blonde but …. I think I can live with it :) Can’t wait to see more from The Place Beyond the Pines.
