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.

Looking like a modern day “Les Miserables” starring two of the Sexiest Men Alive with questionable haircuts, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper battle from opposite sides of the law in the first trailer for “The Place Beyond the Pines.” The Derek Cianfrance film 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, with Dane DeHaan as Gosling Jr and Emory Cohen Cooper’s son.
The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews and is certainly one of our most anticipated films of 2013. The beautiful, atmospheric trailer which only teases the plot can be viewed below, and “The Place Beyond the Pines” will be released on March 29th.

When the news broke that Ryan Gosling was teaming back up with Derek Cianfrance for a new project, everyone at Up and Comers was pretty excited; their collaboration on one of 2010′s best films, “Blue Valentine”, was outstanding. But the premise of the new project was vastly different and intriguing, and now we have our first official still from the film, featuring Gosling astride his motorcycle.
“The Place Beyond the Pines” is a ‘multi-generational crime drama’, and will also star a host of exciting rising actors, including Rose Byrne (who replaced Greta Gerwig back in the summer), Emory Cohen and Dane DeHaan, as well stars such as Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta.
Filming finished late in the summer and is currently in post-production. No word on a release date yet, but we expect to see both Gosling and Cianfrance on the festival circuit next year.
Luke (Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Cooper) their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational fued. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a rich dramatic thriller that traces the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villain.
