(PCM) Warner Bros. Pictures released a new featurette for Lost River, the directorial debut from writer-producer Ryan Gosling, opening on April 10 for a theatrical run in NY and LA and on national digital release.
The new featurette, clocking in at a solid three minutes and playing more like a trailer than a behind-the-scenes look, contains dark imagery, metallic booming bass, Christina Hendricks peeling off her face, and a hazy surreal atmosphere, mirroring the description of Lost River as a “dark fairy tale.”
Lost River stars Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Saoirse Ronan (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Reda Kateb (Zero Dark Thirty), Barbara Steele (TV’s Dark Shadows), with Eva Mendes (The Place Beyond the Pines), and Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises).
Lost River is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger. In the virtually abandoned city of Lost River, Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Her teenage son Bones (Iain De Caestecker) discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that triggers his curiosity and sets into motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.
In addition to making his directorial debut, Ryan Gosling also wrote and produced Lost River. Marc Platt (Into the Woods), Adam Siegel (Drive), Michael Litvak (Nightcrawler) and David Lancaster (Nightcrawler) also served as producers.
Lost River reunites the collaborative efforts of writer-director Ryan Gosling and critically acclaimed composer Johnny Jewel, who first worked together on the soundtrack success of Drive.
