Drive Poster

There are no clean getaways. Earlier today we featured that awesome new UK quad poster for Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, in the post for the new TV spot that's airing. Thanks to a tip from The Film Stage, we can now check out the theatrical US poster for Drive from IMPAwards, where they've got it in high res. If you're not excited for this movie yet, this is another reminder that you should be, as it's one of the best films this year (my review) and the marketing for it has been pitch perfect. I liked the posters they had at Comic-Con, but I wanted more and here we go. Can't wait until this finally hits theaters!

Ryan Gosling's Drive Poster

A Hollywood stunt driver (played by Ryan Gosling) who usually keeps to himself and moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him by a local mob boss after a heist that goes wrong.

Drive is directed by Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, of the Pusher trilogy, Bronson and Valhalla Rising previously. The screenplay was written by Hossein Amini (The Four Feathers, Killshot, 47 Ronin), adapted from James Sallis' novel. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where Refn went on to win Best Director. FilmDistrict will be releasing Drive in theaters everywhere on September 16th this fall.

    They really need to change that font and color...they just have to. I was expecting a more retro poster for this film, from what I've seen in the trailer anyway.

      I think they're going 80's for certain things, the font, colour and pop-music seem to be that era.

      Whaaa?! You mean the pink color of the logo? I love that! You really need to see the film and get into it and the inspirations behind it to truly understand why it works so perfectly. It may seem a bit off, but that's why it's so awesome, it works, just see the film!

        That's true, I haven't seen the film so I don't know the vibe that's reflected in the poster...or the font, to be more specific. If it's 80s they're going for, then maybe that Risky Business look fits. I was thinking they were going for a more 70s vibe. All that said, I'm still looking forward to seeing the film on the big screen. Thanks for your reply, Alex.

          No prob. I understand what you're saying. When I first saw it was thinking like WTF, but I love this movie so much and have listened to Refn and Gosling talk about it a lot, now I get it and I love it. :)

    Just saw this film yesterday. It was awesome and also for me one of the best in 2011!

    Transporter?

    More important than the art layout choices, the "There are no clean getaways" tagline was already used extensively for No Country for Old Men: the posters, mylars, even the DVD packaging. What's the copyright law for something like that?

    Ryan Gosling um NO!

    i thought the text was the best bit about this! completely compliments it and perfectly mirrors the films tone and miami-vice style

    Seen this at a festival in Dublin on the weekend. It's the film of the year so far. If feels like a visual cocktail of William Friedken's 'To Live and Die in L.A.' and Michael Mann's 'Heat'.

    I actually really like the moody desaturated feel of this poster... It creates creepy fantastical sensibility. Is Ryan Gosling the hottest dude in Hollywood right now? Definitely his star is rising again. Thanks for sharing Geoff Riding the Twitter Train for lovefilmfunds
