Gosling and Cooper in the Trailer for ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’

It’s been about three years since Ryan Gosling teamed up with director Derek Cianfrance to bring us the riveting Blue Valentine, and now the pair have reunited to deliver The Place Beyond the Pines. Gosling plays Luke, a professional motorcycle rider who turns to robbing banks to support his newborn son. Meanwhile Bradley Cooper plays an honest cop attempting to track Luke down, and in the process discovers corruption in the police force. Both Gosling and Cooper look pretty incredible here, and I can only wonder if this  trailer will help Academy members take Cooper’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook even more seriously.
