More Drive (2011) Videos

Exclusive Drive Red Band Trailer from IGN!

Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman and Albert Brooks (as evil?!). What’s not to like about Drive? From IMDb: “A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.” An upcoming movie from Nicolas Winding Refn, Drive is Ryan Gosling’s first action movie. He has broken our hearts and made us sob until our tears ran out. We sympathized with his characters’ quirky “habits.” Every girl has fallen in love with him in The Notebook. It seems like Gosling is expanding his repertoire this year with Crazy, Stupid, Love (opens today!) and Drive. I think he is a great actor.

Drive premiered at Cannes Film Festival in competition (!) and took home Best Director for Refn. In my opinion, it was definitely chosen as a wild-card for the competition but it was loved and lauded by critics and the general audience. Apparently, Drive got a 15 minute standing ovation at its premiere.

This trailer for Drive has the feeling of Steve McQueen car chase movies (Bullitt anyone?), with standout performances from the cast -especially Ryan Gosling. Can Gosling be the next McQueen? What would you name the nameless driver?

Drive opens on September 16, 2011.
