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.

Hit the jump to check out the clips.  The film also stars Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta.

Here’s the synopsis for The Place Beyond the Pines:

Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. But when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper), their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud. The Place Beyond the Pines is a rich dramatic thriller, tracing the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villains.

This first clip comes interspersed between footage of Cianfrance giving an interview at TIFF, while the other clip is courtesy of HitFix.
