Drive, which comes from Bronson director Nicolas Winding Refn and stars Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Christina Hendricks, and Bryan Cranston, opens on September 16th. If you have a calendar or a calendar app handy, why don’t you go ahead and mark that date down. If you have young children, go ahead and pick up the phone and arrange a babysitter. If you’ve made work or other vacation plans for that day that would prevent you from attending a movie screening, you go ahead and cancel those plans. If you have a terminal disease and less than a month to live, arrange to have your expiration date postponed. If you live until September 17th, you will be able to die happy.
This is the best trailer of the year so far, and reviews out of festivals indicate the that film is every bit as good as the trailer suggests. Now, I want you to watch this trailer because I want to ensure that your interest is piqued. On the other hand, I also fear that, by watching it, you might spend the next two months restless and unable to sleep, so impatient you are for September 16th to arrive.
Chances are, tickets at your local multiplex have not gone on sale yet. But if you want to go ahead and stand in line, I wouldn’t think any less of you.
