Six New Character Banners for Nicolas Winding Refn's Thriller 'Drive'
If you headed out to see the supremely disappointing horror flick Don't Be Afraid of the Dark this past weekend, then you more than likely saw a trailer for another Film District release in the form of Nicolas Winding Refn's thriller Drive starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. If not, you would do well to check out the red band trailer which is even better than the one approved for all audiences in theaters right now. Gosling has already been featured front and center on the official poster for the film, and now six new banners highlight the supporting cast including an intimidating, villainous Albert Brooks and more.
Here are the new Drive banners courtesy of IMP Awards:
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.
