Ominous & Odd International Trailer for Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River'
"The only way to break the spell is to bring peace to the surface." After the first peculiar trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River arrived not too long ago, an international trailer gives us another look at the very strange film. Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Ben Mendelsohn and Saoirse Ronan star in the film that is full of dark fantasy and gorgeous imagery. But it looks like Gosling just may have been trying too hard to make this one work in the end. It feels like the kind of film that sounded good and beautifully artistic on paper but doesn't end up connecting with the audience. Watch?
Here's the new international trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from The Film Stage:
You can still watch the first US trailer for Lost River right here.
Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of Drive, The Ides of March, Crazy Stupid Love), making his feature directorial debut. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while Bones (Iain De Caestecker), her eighteen-year-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive. Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn also star in the film that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and Warner Bros. Pictures will release it on VOD & limited theaters April 10th.

This LOOKS really good, but from what I've heard in reviews it's making me think otherwise. I will probably wait until it hits Bluray because I'd still like to check it out.
