Derek Cianfrance’s directorial follow up to 2010’s Blue Valentine features Ryan Gosling (again), but this time he’s not playing the ne’er do well young husband. Rather, he’s got a harder edge as a motorcycle trickster who must decide how to handle unexpected fatherhood… all while getting caught up in a complex crime drama. In the trailer below, we get a glimpse at Gosling’s character’s life, his love interest played by Eva Mendes, and the cops entangled in his case, played by Bradley Cooper and Ray Liotta.

Since former EW movies writer Dave Karger noted on the film’s Toronto Film Festival premiere that “This is the kind of movie that one should know nothing about before seeing,” we’ll leave you with the trailer and say no more.
