Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn won himself the Best Director award at this years Cannes film festival thanks to his entry Drive. Starring Ryan Gosling the film has been generating enormous buzz ever since and its not hard to understand why. Watch this amazing new red-band trailer and see for yourself. Gosling looks ultra cool in his part of hired ‘driver’ who gets caught up with some less than friendly characters. Winding Refn is the director who gave us the classic Valhalla Rising (one of my favourite films of last year!), he also directed the superb Bronson and is currently shooting the remake of Logan’s Run. Make no mistake, Drive is gonna be massive when it hits UK cinemas September 23rd.
DRIVE is the story of a Hollywood stunt driver by day, a loner by nature who moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene. When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best – drive.
