New Poster for 'Drive' Features No Driving

To keep things brief: Drive is really, really good.  Nicolas Winding Refn's first American film is riveting an brutal, with strong characters and a gooey center.  While the supporting cast is formidable and faultless, the whole endeavor is held together by Ryan Gosling's lead performance.  Playing an unnamed character who isn't much of a talker, Gosling stars as mechanic who can drive like the wind, and does so as a getaway driver on occasion.  A new poster for Drive has made its way online, and it features Gosling chewing on a toothpick.

This poster, which touts Refn's Best Director win at the Cannes Film Festival, debuted at IMP Awards.

Gosling recently deviated from his more standard style of film with Crazy, Stupid, Love., but Drive is going to set a new standard for the guy most familiar from The Notebook, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, and on The Mickey Mouse Club.  He's set to collaborate with Refn again on Only God Forgives, which will commence production later this summer.

The supporting players in Drive include Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Bryan Cranston, Oscar Isaac, Christina Hendricks, and Albert Brooks in a role that is very different for him.

Seriously, Drive hits theaters one September 16th.
