"Hey girl, it's me, Ryan Gosling.* Oh, thank you. Yeah, it was pretty cool when I dropped my groceries in order to stop a fight in New York. Anything for my fellow man. You know what's way cooler than breaking up fights though? My new movie Drive, in which I play a strong, silent type of mechanic and movie stunt driver who also gets behind the wheel of a getaway car every now and then. I wear leather driving gloves and have a toothpick in my mouth a lot of the time, but both actually tell you something about my character. It's directed by my new BFF Nicolas Winding Refn, and as this new international trailer proves, it's awesome.** The trailer gives a little to much away, but if that's what you need to be convinced to put your butt in a seat at your local multiplex, then girl, give this trailer a watch."

While Ryan Gosling holds it down as the unnamed hero of Drive, the cast is populated by an eclectic group of ringers, any one of whom can support a movie all on their own, including Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, and Oscar Isaac.
Hossein Amini adapted the screenplay from the novel of the same name by James Sallis. Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn makes his American debut with the film, which is due in theaters on September 16th.
