It’s hard for a movie poster to be anything but pretty when it features the faces of Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling, and Bradley Cooper, but somehow, the new poster for The Place Beyond the Pines achieves an impressive-yet-appropriate level of gloominess (while still being pretty).
The Place Beyond the Pines, the next film from Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance, stars Ryan Gosling as a stunt rider who turns to a life of crime (specifically bank robbing) to provide for his baby mama, played by Eva Mendes. Meanwhile, Cooper and his blue eyes are lurking around every corner with his rookie-cop badge and a son of his own.
After debuting at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, The Place Beyond the Pines is giving the rest of us a glimpse into its world with its latest poster, which features a very worried Mendes, a confused/angry Cooper and a determined Gosling on his way to the nearest bank. It’s a tale of fathers, sons and, from the looks of the poster, at least one dark and stormy night.
