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 theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
