Ryan Gosling has been to the Cannes Film Festival as an actor, starring in the critically adored "Drive," the equally admired "Blue Valentine" and the less universally embraced "Only God Forgives." But this year he's back as a filmmaker, with his directorial debut "Lost River" playing in Un Certain Regard. It premieres this week, and this first taste of his fantastical film has now arrived online.

"I wanted to make this film because it's a movie that I would want to see. Like many children who grew up in the 1980s, I first approached the cinema through mainstream films. I was excited to shoot this kind of story, but with the language of filmmaker that I've acquired through the years," Gosling said in the press notes for the film (via Ryan Gosling Addicted). And certainly, this teaser would've expanded our young minds. An array of striking images are compiled here, opening a window into the story of Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. 

Christina HendricksBen MendelsohnEva MendesSaoirse Ronan and Matt Smith star in the film and stayed tuned for verdict. Watch below.

    Troll alert

    Gosling is the best. I will be watching this movie.

  • Drones | May 19, 2014 12:30 PM

    He is very overrated as an actor IMO. But we will see what he is like as a director.

    Who knew there weren't any African-Americans in Detroit anymore?

  • Huh? | May 20, 2014 1:59 PM

    How did you figure this is a movie about Detroit?

  • Jiana | May 19, 2014 10:53 PM

    I couldn't have said it better Flop, that's all I could think about watching the trailer and seeing the cast for this movie.

  • Betsy | May 19, 2014 10:19 PM

    What would Ryan Gosling know about being Black? I'm glad he's leaving a film with Black characters to Black directors, especially for his first film as a director. Anyway, this is not a documentary - he does not have to reflect the demographics of Detroit in his film!

  • HJGK | May 19, 2014 11:56 AMReply

    Can't judge the whole thing of course but already this clip wasn't very well directed....

  • Sucks | May 19, 2014 11:53 AMReply

    LOL. Looks dumb as hell. Gosling is the worst.

  • jake | May 19, 2014 11:31 AMReply

    looking forward to this

  • asdf | May 19, 2014 11:23 AMReply

    This actually looks good, kind of sarcastic and artsy. we can only find out after watching the whole movie.

  • Err | May 19, 2014 11:08 AMReply

    That was supposed to be funny right?

  • NOWATCH87 | May 19, 2014 11:02 AMReply

    I think the verdict will be like basically all of his films: the usual critics who kiss his ass (like this site, as mentioned before) will praise it but in the end, it will flop and leave little to no impression.


    I totally forgot about him and haven't missed him one bit really. I was over him after Gangster Squad. He can stay behind the camera and just direct crappy movies for all I care.

  • JIM | May 19, 2014 12:00 PM

    who are you the spokesmen of the people? ur just a lil barking dog.

  • NOWATCH87 | May 19, 2014 11:55 AM

    you cared enough to respond. Did I hurt your feelings, Mr. Gosling? Don't worry, I like most people won't be seeing this.

  • JIM | May 19, 2014 11:38 AM

    ok then dont watch the movie. who gives a shit about lil f***s like you.

  • VIC | May 19, 2014 10:45 AMReply

    This looks really good!

  • lol | May 19, 2014 10:39 AMReply

    That was awful and unintentionally hilarious. Look how weird and eccentric he is!!!! *pukes*

  • sam | May 19, 2014 11:35 AM

    I Think its meant to be a little hilarious.

  • Jim | May 19, 2014 10:52 AM

    hahaha yep. more pseudo-artsy style over substance crap from Gosling. this site is completely up his ass though so it'll give his movie a blind A+ review.

  • yer | May 19, 2014 9:51 AMReply

    Looks like he's copying George Washington/Beasts of the Southern Wild.

  • Betsy | May 19, 2014 10:18 PM

  • bill | May 19, 2014 11:32 AM

    This look nothing like Beasts of the Southern Wild.

  • NNBN | May 19, 2014 11:12 AM

    Exactly what I thought! Those movies directed by a total amateur.

  • H | May 19, 2014 10:31 AM

    minus the black characters? Isn't this supposed to allude to Detroit?
