After watching Derek Cianfrance's BLUE VALENTINE, I knew that this guy would go on to direct films with interesting character relationships that feel genuine. While THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a bit more of a stretch than the relationship drama contained in BLUE VALENTINE, Cianfrance makes you feel for the character in whatever situation.

Of course, after seeing pictures, I wondered what the film would shape up to be. What was a tatted up Ryan Gosling doing on a dirt bike? Why was Bradley Cooper chasing him? It all came together spectacularly in the trailer. The first poster for the flick isn't too shabby either. Even though there are some floating heads, I really enjoy the bottom half-- a dark town with the light breaking through the clouds. Gosling with his back to us sitting on his bike looking up at the go signal. Love the significance.

Check out the poster below.

Synopsis: The daring new movie from the director of Blue Valentine, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a sweeping emotional drama powerfully exploring the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons. Luke (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) is in constant motion, a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels from town to town with the carnival. Passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has in his absence given birth to their son Jason. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). Robin soon discovers Lukes special talents, and proposes to partner with him in a string of spectacular bank robberies. But it is only a matter of time before Luke will run up against the law which comes in the form of Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper).

Avery is an ambitious rookie cop navigating a local police department ruled by the menacingly corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta). When Avery, just beginning to balance his profession and his family life with wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ, confronts Luke, the full consequences will reverberate into the next generation. It is then that the two sons, Jason (Dane DeHaan) and AJ (Emory Cohen), must face their fateful, shared legacy.

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is due to release on March 29th.

This is my most anticipated film of 2013 that does not have to deal with superheroes, sequels, or reboots. Blue Valentine was amazing and this movie looks equally amazing with a terrific cast. Can't wait to see Gosling and Cooper's characters play off one another in this film.

But the poster is great. Something I would buy and put up on my wall.

Schenectady is a Mohawk word for "Beyond the Pines"

Living in Schenectady you can't believe the imagine the hype surrounding this film. When the trailer came out I had a nerd-gasm seeing the Church Altar where I was confirmed, had my first communion, was married and where both my kids were baptized. Even the poster is somewhat unreal as it features the real name of the real upstate bank not two miles from my house. The bulk of the principle photography was completed here and honestly speaking... there was not one other than supremely positive

Even the poster is somewhat unreal as it features the real name of the real upstate bank not two miles from my house. The bulk of the principle photography was completed here and honestly speaking... there was not one other than supremely positive word spoken about the entire cast and crew as they frequented local establishments. Additionally, the Schenectady P.D. and city have both enjoyed a long and storied history of rampant corruption... so I''m interested to see the story play out on film.

This poster would have been much more significant if it were left with just Gosling and his bike. Regardless, I'm stoked for this film. Loved 'Blue Valentine.'

The bottom half of this poster is great. I don't really like all their heads on the top though. Still I can NOT wait for this film. "If you ride like lightning, you're gonna crash like thunder"
