Warner Bros. has taken a pretty clever approach to marketing The Nice Guys, Shane Black's new dark comedy noir starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a mismatched pair of investigators. In keeping with that idea, these new video shorts feature Gosling and Crowe playing fictional versions of themselves, forced to attend couples therapy to work out their issues so they can more amicably promote the film together.

It’s nice to be reminded that Shane Black has a new movie hitting theaters soon. And in case you forgot, a new trailer for The Nice Guys has arrived, teasing Black’s noir action-comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a mismatched investigative team who get in way over their heads while trying to solve the disappearance of a young woman. That plot sounds a bit serious, but the latest trailer promises it’s anything but. (Okay, maybe it’s a little serious. Just a little.)
It’s still kind of hard to believe that all these years later, we’re finally getting a Blade Runner sequel. Even after they announced the project, even after they claimed people like Ryan Gosling and the original film’s star, Harrison Ford, were involved, it seemed like a pipe dream; the sort of thing people talk about online for years as a possibility that never actually materializes.
Five words: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, musical. Still not sold? Throw in Damien Chazelle, one of 2015's most talked about filmmakers and the guy behind Whiplash. Excited yet?
It only takes Adam McKay about three minutes to prove he was the perfect guy to direct The Big Short.
Often under-appreciated (or left out entirely), SNL stars Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett’s absurdly awkward ‘90s sitcom parodies have gotten better and better, and we can blame Ryan Gosling for the latest not making it to air. Both Family Matters and Saved By the Bell get their spot-on due in the latest cut-for-time SNL sketch, fresh from Saturday’s airing.
If you weren’t watching Ryan Gosling on SNL last night, then you missed the first TV spot for The Nice Guys, the new film from writer / director Shane Black, featuring Gosling and Russell Crowe. It’s a little shorter and more sanitized than that amazing red band trailer from a couple of days ago, but it’s still quite…nice.
While traditional live sketches are still the backbone of any given episode, modern SNL is frequently at its best in the pre-recorded segments. The past few years have seen an interesting evolution as the silly “digital shorts” of a decade ago have matured into full-blown filmmaking, with sketches that feel more like short films than just a comedy bit. Last night’s Ryan Gosling-hosted episode peaked with a pre-recorded sketch titled “Santa Baby,” which let both SNL and Gosling himself turn the weird up to 11.
Big SNL fans (and that includes us) tend to roll our eyes a little whenever an opening monologue revolves around the guest host breaking into song. It often feels like a last resort, like no one in the writers’ room could come up with a better idea. And while we want to turn up our nose at the show breaking out this formula for Ryan Gosling, we have to admit that they’ve made it work...mostly because they pair him with fellow Canadian and SNL veteran, Mike Myers.
After taking a bit of a break from acting to make his directorial debut (and to have what I presume is a very adorable baby with Eva Mendes), Ryan Gosling is back. In addition to starring in upcoming films from Adam McKay and Shane Black, the actor is cementing his return with his SNL debut. Gosling can't keep a straight face through most of the episode, which delivers some really weird and delightful sketches with few disappointments. Read on for our ranking of this week's SNL sketches from best to worst.
