To watch 'The Place Beyond the Pines' is to observe characters making discoveries. Discoveries about their past, their environment, their heritage. When the revelations come they aren't met with gasps or dropped objects, but with an understanding, an acceptance that, yes, this is, indeed, the way things are.
While you'd swear with every bone in your body that this vast, rich, symbol-heavy tale was surely based on a thick doorstopper of a novel, the surprising fact remains that it is, actually, an original screenplay. It seems, though, a natural progression after the character portraiture of Derek Cianfrance's last film 'Blue Valentine.' This new one has the essence of 'Blue Valentine' but blown open far and wide.

For most first time directors, attracting big names to your movie is a huge challenge, but when you are a first-time director who also happens to be Ryan Gosling, you probably have to beat back the talent with an oar or something. The latest piece of the 'How to Catch a Monster' ensemble is the increasingly busy Oscar nominee, Saoirse Ronan.
Two fandoms are uniting and the world may implode: Matt Smith of 'Doctor Who' has just signed on to play the male lead in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, 'How to Make a Monster.' Gosling fans and 'Doctor Who' fans, together at last. Think of the memes!
Dirty Harry would love 'Gangster Squad,' a movie about cops who operate so far outside the law they make Clint Eastwood's signature detective look like a pencil-pushing dweeb. Assembled by LAPD police chief Bill Parker (Nick Nolte), and supposedly inspired by a true story, the members of the so-called Gangster Squad operate as judge, jury, and executioners. They don't arrest their targets; they "wage war" against their enemy, mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). In their quest to bust up Cohen's rackets, the Gangster Squad brandishes about a billion guns and not a single badge. Hell, even Dirty Harry waited until the end of his movie to toss his away.
You really can't find two more different films than the Ryan Gosling vehicle 'Only God Forgives' the blockbuster fantasy epic 'Jack the Giant Slayer,' but here they are, both existing side-by-side in the same post because one has released its first teaser footage and another has a new poster to examine. Check 'em out below!
'Gangster Squad' -- featuring an all-star cast including Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn and Josh Brolin -- hits theaters next week, and we're excited to see one of the most anticipated movies of the new year on the big screen. While Warner Bros. released a number of trailers, posters, images and behind-the-scenes footage to get us all pumped, it's now time to bring on the clips -- six clips in fact!
A few weeks ago, we got our first look at 'The Place Beyond the Pines' with the arrival of the first trailer. Normally, trailers like those arrive after vague, mysterious teaser posters, but for whatever reason, the exact opposite has occurred here. If anything, this poster lets us know exactly how this movie is going to be marketed (the "OMG MOVIE STAR" approach).
A professional motorcycle rider turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but he crosses paths with a rookie police officer and their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud.
It's bad enough Ryan Gosling lost the title of PEOPLE's "Sexiest Man Alive" to Channing Tatum, but now we have to see his heartthrob-worthy face now actually throbbing in the latest promo poster for 'Only God Forgives.'
Ryan Gosling had been attached to star in his first big studio action film - a remake of the 1976's 'Logan's Run' - with frequent collaborator Nicholas Winding-Refn ('Drive'). But now Gosling has dropped out of the project and that leaves us wondering if the 'Logan's Run' remake will ever happen.
