Red Band Drive Trailer Crashes Online
Ryan Gosling is behind the wheel

Red Band Drive Trailer Crashes Online

We've had our Fast Fives and our Drive Angrys, but it's been a while since anyone delivered a properly grown-up car-chase movie. As if in answer to that very call then, here's the US trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, which screeched through Comic-Con and pulled up at IGN.

There's plenty of plot detail in amongst the action, so you'll easily glean from the clip that Ryan Gosling is a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a wheelman for shady types until a heist goes awry and he finds himself with a price on his head.

Advance word on this is strong. The trailer may have a conventional thriller feel to it, but you should definitely expect the same sense of Refn auteurship that was writ large in the eccentric Bronson and the frankly mental Valhalla Rising. Gosling's Drive character is unnamed but don't expect a homage to Ryan O'Neal's taciturn turn in Walter Hill's The Driver in this promo. There's dialogue here; there's plot; there's action; there's romance. 

There's also a very strong supporting cast, built out of Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Bryan Cranston, Oscar Isaac, Christina Hendricks and an against-type Albert Brooks. UK audiences can take delivery of the full Drive package on September 23.
