In just a few weeks Derek Cianfrance‘s Blue Valentine follow-up The Place Beyond the Pines, will finally be landing in theaters. In anticipation, the sprawling family drama told on an intimate scale now has a few new clips, one featuring Ryan Gosling attempting to swoon Eva Mendes, while another has Bradley Cooper trying to fix a mistake. One can also check out our TIFF review, where we said the film’s “ambition alone shows its director is not a one-hit wonder,” as well as see some new photos featuring Dane DeHaan, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Emory Cohen, and our director behind the scenes.
In other Place Beyond the Pines-related news, its co-writer Ben Coccio has found his next project. According to THR, he’ll be adapting Michael Koryta‘s novel So Cold the River for New Regency’. While no director or cast has been attached yet, the 2010 book will see Coccio in very different territory, following a “washed-up documentary filmmaker hired by a woman to make a project about her father-in-law, a mysterious 95-year-old billionaire from a small Indiana town. Once in that town, which proves to have an extraordinary history, the filmmaker is plagued by visions that lead him to discover a long-buried evil ready to return.” While we’re a ways off on that project, check out the new clips and photos from Pines below.
The Place Beyond the Pines opens on March 29th.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
