First Trailer for Shane Black's 'The Nice Guys' with Gosling & Crowe
"A couple of people I trust say you're really good at this." Warner Bros has unveiled the first full, red band trailer for Shane Black's The Nice Guys starring one amazing duo: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Gosling plays a private detective who ends up mixed up with Crowe's Jackson Healy, a shady character that helps people in trouble. The full cast includes Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger, Rachele Brooke Smith, and Ty Simpkins. This looks like crazy, raucous, violent fun. It's supposedly a "spiritual sequel" to Black's Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and it definitely has that vibe. I'm so glad they went red band on this, because that's the best way to sell this. It wouldn't work as well if they censored everything. You don't want to miss this!
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Shane Black's The Nice Guys, direct from YouTube:
The Nice Guys is co-written and directed by filmmaker Shane Black, screenwriter of the Lethal Weapon series, The Monster Squad, Last Action Hero, and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Marvel's Iron Man 3 previously. The screenplay is also co-written by Anthony Bagarozzi. "It is an R-rated film and it's a caper," Black told People. "It's a little fast, a little funny and a little rough in places, kind of coarse. These guys are working-class dudes, they're not really sophisticated private detectives, so it's a chance to do the kind of thriller I don't see too much of anymore." It's more than just noir. "It's a little bit pushed – the premise, the time period, everything is a little crazy." WB will release The Nice Guys on May 20th, 2016 next summer.
