This one has been on our radar since forever, and we are finally just about two months away from the release of Derek Cianfrance’s “Blue Valentine” follow-up, multi-generational family/crime drama “The Place Beyond the Pines.” We’ve seen the first teaser trailer but today new stills have been released which give us our first look at young actors Dane DeHaan and Emory Cohen, who play the sons of feuding rivals Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, respectively.
His second collaboration with Cianfrance sees Gosling as a reluctant bank robber and Cooper as the police officer hot on his trail. They’re both new dads and their altercation has lasting effects, ultimately bleeding down to their sons. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, including for Cohen, who’s the least known amongst his co-stars and who has a somewhat shaky reputation from playing Debra Messing’s insufferable teenage son on NBC series “Smash.” On the bright side, someone like Shailene Woodley was able to shake off a horrible years-long TV reputation to become one of the most successful young rising stars of the moment, so Cohen will probably be just fine.
“The Place Beyond the Pines” will be released on March 29th, and the new images can be viewed below, thanks to Thompson on Hollywood.
