Ryan Gosling was – unfortunately – missing from the big screen in 2012 however 2013 will be a much better year for Gosling fans. He’ll be seen in Gangster Squad in early January and then he reunites with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance for The Place Beyond the Pines. The cast also includes Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne, Dane DeHaan, Gabe Fazio, Bruce Greenwood, and Ray Liotta.
The highly anticipated new drama from director Derek Cianfrance powerfully explores the consequences of motorcycle rider Luke’s (Gosling) fateful decision to commit a crime to support his child. The incident renders him targeted by policeman Avery (Cooper), and the two men become locked on a tense collision course which will have a devastating impact on both of their families in the years following.
