Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance and star Ryan Gosling reunited for The Place Beyond the Pines, and the first trailer for the film is below. Here Gosling plays a hasher motorcycle daredevil who turns to crime to support the son he finds he has after the boy’s birth.

But a couple of cops (Bradley Cooper and Ray Liotta) track Gosling down after his crime, only to get involved in something far more complicated than a simple cops and robbers situation. Pines appears to be similar to Drive in the way it uses the basic language of a genre picture to approach a drama from an atypical angle. It’s not going to be a movie for everybody — if you want a straight crime thriller, this almost certainly isn’t it — but the trailer suggests that those who want a movie that plays around with the mixture of drama and genre will have a lot to enjoy.

The Place Beyond the Pines opens on March 29, 2013.

Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. But when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper), their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud. The Place Beyond the Pines is a rich dramatic thriller, tracing the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villains.
