We’ve got some new images, a clip and TV spot from Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines to share with you today. The film stars Oscar-nominated actors Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) and Ryan Gosling (Half Nelson) as two fathers on opposite sides of the law. The film also stars Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne and Dane DeHaan. The Place Beyond the Pines opens in limited release on March 29th. Hit the jump to check out the clip, TV spot and new images.
Focus Features has released a new clip from Derek Cianfrance’s drama The Place Beyond the Pines. The film centers on a generational conflict involving two fathers: one a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper). Eva Mendes co-stars as the girlfriend of Gosling’s character. As I’ve said before, you want to try and keep yourself in the dark as much as possible on this flick, and I would encourage you to be very careful when reading about it. I saw the movie at TIFF, and it has a good chance of being on my Top 10 films of 2013.

Eleven new images from Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines have been released. The film centers on a generational conflict involving two fathers: one a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper). Saying more would be detrimental to your enjoyment of the film, and I would encourage you to be very careful when reading about it. I saw the movie at TIFF, and it has a good chance of being on my Top 10 films of 2013. I’m a little surprised the film is getting released in March since it could have some serious awards potential.

2012 is now officially over, and over the past few weeks we’ve been looking back at what the best of 2012 had to offer. As we turn our attention to the year ahead, it’s time for the latest installment of our “Most Anticipated” feature. Throughout 2013, we’ll once again be taking a quarterly look at what Collider’s editors are most looking forward to, and today we’re focusing on the films that will be hitting theaters from January through March.
Hit the jump to see the films that Matt, Adam, Brendan, and Dave are most anticipating in the next few months.
The first trailer for director Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines has gone online. The film centers on two fathers: one is a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) while the other is a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper). Though the two leads are instantly set on a collision course, it’s hard to know who to root for with such compelling actors in their respective multi-dimensional roles. You can also check out two clips from the film here and read Matt Goldberg’s review from TIFF.
The Place Beyond the Pines also stars Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta. The film opens March 29, 2013. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
The Toronto Film Festival is widely considered to be the place where a majority of the buzz for so-called “awards films” begins, and this year one of the biggest surprises was Derek Cianfrance’s (Blue Valentine) crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines. The pic stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper and centers on the intense feud between a professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber (Gosling) and a rookie police officer (Cooper). The film premiered to an enthusiastically positive response at TIFF, with heavy praise given to the film’s scope and impact; our own Matt Goldberg called it an “epic family saga” in his positive review.
Focus Features acquired the film for 2013 distribution, and many figured the drama would be poised for an awards season release sometime in the fall. Now Box Office Mojo reports that we’ll see the pic much sooner than expected, as The Place Beyond the Pines has been dated for a limited release on March 29th, 2013. This is great news for those of us eager to see what everyone was buzzing about back at TIFF, but it’s a little surprising that Focus is dropping this one so early in the year.
One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was The Place Beyond the Pines. Written and directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), the pic centers on a professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper). Pines premiered to a rapturous response (read Matt’s glowing review here and here’s two clips), and Focus quickly snapped it up for a planned 2013 release. The pic also stars Eva Mendes, Bruce Greenwood, Dane DeHaan, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn and Rose Byrne.
The day after the premiere, I landed an extended video interview with Cianfrance. We talked about his first feature–Brother Tied–and if it’ll ever be released, the genesis of The Place Beyond the Pines, premiering at TIFF, editing (he shot 400 hours of footage), deleted scenes, and more. In addition, Cianfrance talked about his HBO project Muscle, which is based on Samuel Fussell’s memoir Muscle: Confessions of an Unlikely Bodybuilder. Hit the jump to watch.
Dane DeHaan is having a great year. After appearing on TV series like In Treatment and True Blood, DeHaan starred this year in Josh Trank‘s Chronicle, then acted alongside Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy in Lawless, and now he’s one of the leads in director Derek Cianfrance‘s much buzzed about new film, The Place Beyond the Pines, which premiered to glowing reviews at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival (watch two clips here). In addition, he recently wrapped on director John Krokidas‘ Kill Your Darlings, where he starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Elizabeth Olsen.
Shortly before the premiere of the film at TIFF, I sat down with DeHaan for an extended interview. We talked about the past year, how he prepares for his roles, what it was like to work for Cianfrance and make The Place Beyond the Pines, who he plays in Kill Your Darlings and what its about, and what he might have coming up.

Hot on the heels of the news that Focus Features has acquired the extremely well received crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines, the first two clips from the film have landed online. Written and directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), the pic centers on the intense feud between a professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper). Pines premiered at the Toronto Film Festival late last week to a rapturous response (read Matt’s glowing review here), and Focus quickly snapped it up for a planned 2013 release. These two clips feature a peroxided and tattooed Gosling planning a bank robbery and Cooper’s cop character being questioned in a hospital bed by Bruce Greenwood.

Writer-director Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines is a rich, multi-layered narrative dripping with fatalism, guilt, honor, and no easy answers. It is an epic family saga that defies easy explanation, and rebels against the structure of a traditional narrative. His gripping tale shows split-second connections that last lifetimes, and old sins that reach across generations. Cianfrance has created a remarkable work that reaches a grand ambition with an intimate tale. And I have to tell you why it works without divulging the twists and turns of its razor-sharp script.
On the red carpet at tonight’s Saturn Awards, I was able to interview Bruce Greenwood. We talked about J.J. Abrams Star Trek sequel, Robert Zemeckis’ Flight, Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines with Ryan Gosling, Atom Egoyan‘s Devil’s Knot (which also stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth and follows the true story of the West Memphis Three case), and more.
For fans of Star Trek, I asked Greenwood about filming with IMAX cameras, what the first few days were like on set, lens flairs, what it was like being on a fully constructed Enterprise bridge, and the size of Pike’s role in the sequel. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
