This is an international trailer for Drive. I am pretty lucky to have seen this film already, and I interviewed the director on Monday. Both the review and the interview will be posted in September, closer to the release date. Trust me. You will be blown away by the film, and this trailer is a great glimpse of what you will see. The best thing about this trailer? You get a taste of what the music is like in the film. The song at the end is in the film and is called “Nightcall” by Kavinsky.
“Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac). After a heist intended to pay off Standard’s protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they’re coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.”
Go see Drive when it comes out on September 16, 2011.
