Excitement alert! A whole batch of images from 'The Place Beyond the Pines' has just landed featuring the spectacuarly handsome Ryan Gosling. We have high hopes for the new crime film, not least because it sees the actor acting alongside real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes and reuniting with 'Blue Valentine' director, Derek Cianfrance - but this is no emotional, method piece. In fact, Gos thugs-up to play a professional motorcyclist-turned-bank robber, who faces off with rookie cop-slash-politician Bradley Cooper. The film also stars Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Bruce Greenwood and Ben Mendohlson - pretty good for a supporting cast, eh? So we'll now clarify what we're most looking forward to from the film because, well, it seems like the right thing to do and not AT ALL because we want to swoon over Gosling on our lunch break...
1. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes playing happy brooding families
2. Gosling going biker-cool
3. A clean shaven Bradley Cooper (tho' we prefer him avec beard)
4. Ryan and Eva looking loved-up on a motorbike. N'awww!
5. Rose Byrne doing a great wistfully-sitting-on-the-stairs look
6. Eva eating Ryan's shoulder. Well, you can't blame the girl
7. Ryan's peroxide blonde 'do. SO on trend.
8. Eva Mendes' laidback cool
9. Bradley Cooper in uniform
10. ...and a topless Ryan Gosling. Need we say more?
Just in case you need more persuading that you MUST watch this movie, enjoy the trailer below...
'The Place Beyond the Pines' is in cinemas on April 12. See the film's Facebook page for more.
