We're only a few days for the Cannes premiere of Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive," easily one of our most anticipated films of the year, and we can barely contain ourselves: in fact, we've built a cardboard car in the center of The Playlist office and are currently sitting in it with a full-sized body pillow of Oscar Isaac. Fortunately, a healthier way of passing the time before the film arrives at the festival on Thursday has arrived, with Rope of Silicon debuting a new two-minute clip from the film.
We've already seen one snippet from the very beginning of the film, but this one's very different, with the first glimpses of Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston's characters and a much warmer, sunnier vibe, suggesting that the film is more than the minimalist thriller that the first clip implied. Still looks great though. There's also a glimpse at a cut from the soundtrack: the song "A Real Hero" by French dance artist College, ft. Electric Youth (listen to the whole thing below). Neat, huh? The site also has a bunch of images from the film, some we've seen before, some of which are new: check them, and the clip, out after the jump. And for those not currently in the South of France, "Drive" hits theaters on September 16th.
