More Driving Action With Ryan Gosling In Drive

The upcoming heist movie Drive, coming to theaters September 12th through FilmDistrict, has me excited because it's directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and my wife excited because it stars Ryan Gosling. Either way, this looks to be one of the more stylish theatrical releases of late and I plan on heading out to the theater to catch it. I previously posted a load of stills and the trailer from the movie, which you can check out here, and now I have a new clip to share with you.

Breakout Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (THE PUSHER Trilogy, BRONSON, VALHALLA RISING) throttles into the Hollywood fast lane with the precision-crafted action caper DRIVE.

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.
