Making movies isn't easy. Long hours, lots of down time, egos, creative differences and more can make the experience an arduous, stressful task, creating enemies for life and anecdotes galore to fill future pages of Vanity Fair (hello, "World War Z"). But it doesn't always have to be that way, and when it comes to Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, the pair are total bros for life.

Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives
While the story behind "Only God Forgives" will be the reunion between "Drive" director and star, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, is it too early to declare that Kristin Scott Thomas might steal the show? Possibly, but in these three new clips from the movie she stands tall above the whiskey glass smashing and chase sequences.

Yes, the Cannes Film Festival has dominated our minds today, and why not? It's the biggest thing on the calendar in the cinematic year, and this year's lineup is pretty spectacular, with lots of surprises (and a few omissions) but two movies high on our must-watch list are James Gray's newly titled "The Immigrant" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives."

Only God Forgives, Ryan Gosling
Yes, so the Cannes Film Festival lineup dropped this morning and there is a lot to talk about (and we'll be getting to that soon) but there are two things we know: Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" will be there, and it's still one of our most anticipated movies in the south of France. And even better, hot on the heels of the Cannes announcement this morning comes a brand new trailer that is just as eye-poppingly badass as the first teaser.

20 Unforgettable Nude Scenes
Not to dick around, but we've got nudity on the boob right now. Mind. On the mind. Thing is, with an intriguing article over at EW exploring the death of the movie sex scene and the rise of the New Prudishness, with waves made over Kristen Stewart's nudity and handjobs in "On the Road," and now with this week's "Trance" under fire from some quarters for Rosario Dawson's (some say plot-driven, others say gratuitous) birthday suit scene, we've been thinking about nakedness in film almost as much as Seth McFarlane was when he wrote his already-infamous Oscars opening song, though largely without, we hope, the sniggering misogyny.

After “Blue Valentine” tackled the issues of marriage and gender relations, it seemed like a natural progression that filmmaker Derek Cianfrance decided to take on parenthood and legacy in his next film. Taking six years to make, "The Place Beyond The Pines” deals with the issue of legacy in America. Set in working class Schenectady, New York, it tells the story of families on both sides of the law and deals with what fathers intentionally and unintentionally leave their sons (inspiring our list of 22 Great Father & Son Movies). A hit at this year’s TIFF (read our review here), the film stars Ryan Gosling as a motorcycle stunt rider who turns to bank robbery to provide for his young son, and Bradley Cooper as a police officer caught in the crosshairs, a role the actor nearly gave up on. The stellar cast also includes Eva Mendes, Dane DeHaan, Ray Liotta, Emory Cohen, Ben Mendelsohn and Rose Byrne.

Yes, it's over two hours long, and "The Place Beyond The Pines" is a sprawling saga set over a few decades. But that doesn't mean that it isn't instantly gripping, and director Derek Cianfrance plunks the audience right into the world of the film's stunt riding Luke, played by a tattooed, bleached hair Ryan Gosling, with an opening shot as immediately captivating as it was dangerous to shoot (it nearly killed the DP). And if you're waiting for the movie, now playing in limited release, to come near you, here's an early peek at the great sequence which sets the movie in motion to hold you over.

One of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year, at least around these parts, is Nicolas Winding Refn's epic reteam with his "Drive" costar Ryan Gosling, "Only God Forgives." And our anticipatory glee just shot through the roof with the release of a brand new red-band trailer for the movie over at Yahoo, which, after a couple of brief snippets, is the most anybody's seen of the movie so far. Thankfully, it looks very, very awesome.
