I'll be there.
If you were in Cannes in May, hopefully you were one of the privileged few who was able to catch a screening of Nicolas Winding Refn's newest feature DRIVE. Refn, who previously helmed BRONSON, and VALHALLA RISING, won the director's award for his latest while at the famed film festival, and here we have the first poster and trailer.
Ryan Gosling stars simply as 'Driver'--a stuntman by day, and getaway man by night. Looks like he reluctantly takes a job to help out a girl (Carey Mulligan) he has feelings for, and (who would've thought?) it turns out badly.
Awesome cast here: Aside from the always great Gosling, and Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Albert Brooks, Bryan Cranston, Oscar Isaac, and Christina Hendricks are around, playing various roles from mobsters to mechanics to...okay, really only mobsters and mechanics.
Could not be more excited about this one though. I'm loving the mood that this world is giving off, and my god, is Gosling intense. That elevator scene alone would put me in a seat. Just stunning.
