The Nice Guys

"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

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.

This looks great. That toilet scene was gold.

Agree that is started off gold...but from the trailer, it was overdone after a few times opening the door.

I rarely laugh out loud at a trailer but this one I did. Perfect pairing of Crowe and Gosling. The gun throwing scene cracked me up.

Looks amazing! However, touting that one is the "director of Iron Man 3" is probably not the best way for people to come see your movie 🙂 Maybe Gweneth Paltrow will be the hero in this one as well

Yayyyyy! on Dec 4, 2015


Exactly my thought! I chuckled at that accolade 😛

Shane Black is a master of buddy-crime movies. Looks like a fun time.

Pretty funny considering that Crowe and Gosling aren't exactly known as the modern Marx Brothers. I'm in.

I dig it. The pacing of a Black movie is unique.

Carpola on Dec 4, 2015


Well, since there's nothing new to the story, being fun is a bonus ...
