Ryan Gosling simmers in red-band “Drive” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re still trying to figure out Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive.” Is it a summer-blockbuster action picture with an Oscar-worthy cast? Is it an awards contender with explosive action sequences? Could it possibly be both?

The film, which earned Refn a Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival, stars Ryan Gosling as a Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a driver for criminals. But the tables turn when a contract is put out on his head after a heist goes wrong. Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Albert Brooks (!!) and Bryan Cranston star in the high-octane thriller, which reaches theaters on Sept. 16.

But “Drive” has been scoring outstanding reviews from both Cannes and the L.A. Film Fest, where it screened earlier this year. And if Gosling’s as good as we are hearing, could he be in play for an award or two? (Pay attention, Golden Globes, because Gosling kills it in “Crazy Stupid Love,” as well.)

IGN hosted the official red band trailer for “Drive” in Comic-Con, giving us a better idea of what to expect when the film opens in a few weeks. The trailer’s below. See for yourself, and we’ll rev up our “Drive” coverage closer to release:

    Saw this movie last night. There will be Oscars. Albert Brooks has the best chance to win supporting actor. Refn could get nominated as director. AWSOME film.
