First Clip From Ryan Gosling's Directorial Debut Lost River
Matt Smith's showing off...

You may have seen the first image from Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River (formerly How To Catch A Monster) last month, released ahead of the film’s premiere at Cannes and listed as one of the movies we were most anticipating in the festival. If you thought the first clip might offer more lucid context, we’ve got bad news on that front. Though it certainly does make it seem stylish and unique. 

Lost River stars Christina Hendricks as Billy, a single mother of two who has to journey into a macabre, dark fantasy world even as her eldest son Bones (Iain De Caestecker) finds a secret road leading to an underwater town. They’ll both have to figure out the mystery if they’re to help their family survive…

The clip focuses on Bones, who encounters a flaming, riderless bike and the equally mysterious Bully, played by a shaven-headed Matt Smith. The former TARDIS incumbent seems very pleased with his toned physique and eager for the world to appreciate it. Bloomin’ show-off.

With Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn and Barbara Steele amongst the cast, Lost River doesn’t have a final release date in the US or UK yet, but if it’s a success at Cannes, expect that to change quickly.
