Are we all interested in the upcoming The Place Beyond the Pines movie, or what? I mean, not just because Ryan Gosling and his sweetheart Eva Mendes star in the whole thing, but you know, ’cause the movie actually has a good story, a good message, something like that? Never mind, check out the rest of this report to find three new character posters (not bad at all!) & let us know what you think!
So, directed by Derek Cianfrance, this daring new movie is a sweeping emotional drama that, apparently, powerfully explores the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons. In case you’ve missed the first trailer and clips – here’s your perfect chance to fix that.
The movie stars Ryan Gosling as a motorcycle stunt rider named Luke, who considers committing a crime in order to provide for his newborn child, an act that puts him on a collision course with a cop-turned-politician named Avery, played by Bradley Cooper.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
Luke is in constant motion, a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina, only to learn that she has in his absence given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin. Robin soon discovers Luke’s special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But it is only a matter of time before Luke will run up against the law – which comes in the form of Avery Cross.Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca. When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason and AJ, must face their fateful, shared legacy.
Beside Cooper and Gosling, The Place Beyond the Pines also stars Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Mahershala Ali, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen and Ben Mendelsohn, and the movie is set to open in limited theaters on March 29th, 2013.
