Drive Trailer

"What do you do?" "I drive." Here it is, the trailer everyone must watch for one of the year's best films. IGN has posted the first official red band trailer for the new Ryan Gosling film Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (of Pusher, Bronson), that also stars Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, Oscar Isaac, Christina Hendricks and Albert Brooks. If you recall, this was my favorite film of the Cannes Film Festival (read my glowing review) and will definitely be one of my favorites of the year. It's just awesome and I'm so glad we finally have a trailer to show everyone how great this is. Stop and check it out!

Watch the first fantastic red band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive:

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.

        You think? I don't think this movie has the pontential to grant gosling an award as big as the globe or oscar, it just doesn't feel like one of those movies. Its just that we aren't used to seeing actors like him in movies like these.
        • Angelfigueroa81
          i know what you mean but hes got 3 great movies coming out just this year and all different in tone this will be the one every one loves but cant nominate because action movies never get the nod even tho it does have this nice good fellas, james dean feel , but it will nudge them to nominate for "the ideas of march" witch is already looking to take a movie of the year slot as well, award shows across the board will not over look gosling im sure of it
  • Albert Brooks +  Mustang = killed it

    wow, looks, good, reminds me of a goodfellas type of vibe in the modern vein.
  • Ryanr1024
    And why was this a "red band" trailer? Did I miss something?
    •  It's just because of the MPAA... If there is ANY blood on ANYONE in a trailer, you can't show it. I just think they didn't want to censor the blood or digitally alter any scenes just to appease the MPAA for a green band.
      • DDL is AL in 12
        Pause it after Ryan's character says "do you remember this?" but before the man he is going to put the bullet into says "no".   -On a side note, it is nice to see Bryan Cranston in something that looks better than The Lincoln Lawyer and Larry Crowne.

          DDL - watch "breaking bad" on tv. cranston is awesome!
      • JL
        Man, that's really fucked.  I didn't know that.  Well, at least this isn't Aussieland, and we can play any videogame we want.
  • Chazzy
    Didn't even realize that this had such an awesome supporting cast.  I'm even more pumped after seeing this ridiculously awesome trailer.
  • Josh
    finally a good trailer! :)

    It reminds me of " death proof" 😀
  • Gosling is a studmuffin and a great actor but Nicolas Winding Refn has done some other great movies (Bronson and Valhalla Rising).  So with those two together this should be incredible.
  • WhoahNow
    Holy that looked good!
  • TheGuvna
    effing hell that looks like a solid movie in every department. im sold big time. i can defintely see this getting cranked on blu ray and shaking the room with action, cars and a bitta christina. sweet
  • Richie
    I'm gonna pay money to see this
  • The_Kid89
    That actually looks really good, I'm definitely into see this.
  • Brandon
    Looks great. 
  • Ahmed Hozayen
    Why did Hugh Jackman turn the role down?
    • Danimal
      cause he knew he wasnt worthy of it
  • dgeeter
    Im glad i havent seen a "transporter rip off" comment yet
    • JL
      Yeah, me too, but I'll have to say this: I'll never be able to watch Transporter again after this.  This looks too damn awesome.
    • transporter was for little kids and old people
  • I hate the mob, it looks like they get screwed over pretty good in this. Anyone who bullies people into things deserves a hammer to face. This looks good
    • JL
      I hate the mob, too.  And the government, although the government actually serves a purpose, even as corrupt as it is.
      • yep, the government is like a bigger mob, but they don't have to go to jail for all the people they fleece. Neither do the mob either I suppose. Hollywood does put a bit of glamour into the intimidation and robbery of the poorest of people with the mafia rubbish, people seem to enjoy it enough though.
  • transporter-ish?
  • Dirk Diggler
    Campaign for Gosling as next Batman starts here! Plus this movie looks fantastic, glad to see Gosling doing more stuff, his name is like a gold seal of approval he seems to have a good eye for great roles.
    • JL
      Okay, Photoshop the Cowl over his face, then.  I'd like to see that.  We know he has the acting ability.
  • Sarah
    dont know why but i feel like the concept came from the TRANSPORTER movies...
    • Nope, it came from a book published in 2005. It's a loose adaptation, but this has nothing to do with the Transporter movies AT ALL. No similarities besides the fact that someone drives a car.
  • Loser
    Anyone remember The Driver with Ryan O`Neal? This looks awesome
  • Iamyourfather
    Fantastic trailer! It does look amazing!
  • duane
    Albert Brooks... not just the funny everyman Woody Allen stand in anymore. 
  • Love it! Ryan's character reminds me of Stallone in cobra with that stick in his mouth.
  • Bazzmosis
    This looks better than I was expecting. Yes I remember The Driver, also a good film. An early Walter Hill film.
  • Anonymous
    awzome 😀
  • Mika
    this is the dopest film of the year. TRUST.
  • LizLemon
    Looks so good!
  • Eramo
    This trailer surely did leave an impression, Ryan Gosling surely does fit this role!
  • corvetteguy420
    Saw it last night. Expect romance, great music, scary-awesome Albert Brooks, and ULTRA-VIOLENCE! Fucking loved it
