Derek Cianfrance‘s Blue Valentine follow-up The Place Beyond the Pines was getting big awards talk earlier this year. Some thought it was going to be in theaters by now, with Oscar nominations to follow, but then it got set for release next year and the hype all but died off.
I’m not sure why, because after watching this first trailer and I can clearly see why it would have been a strong contender for at least a couple of actor/supporting actor nods. Ryan Gosling looks to be playing the very opposite of his Drive character in this one, coming off as a tattoo-heavy mess of a man, while Bradley Cooper is finally taking his career a bit more seriously playing the cop on the other side of the law.
Ray Liotta can also be seen playing Ray Liotta.
I should really watch Blue Valentine before gauging my excitement for this one, because from what I recall that one split audiences down the middle. Pines looks to be a little more straightforward, but you can never be too safe.
The film comes out on March 29th, 2013. Here’s the first trailer:
