Hell yeah! He's the best driver in town, but the bad guys want him dead! Vroom vroom, bang, vroooooom! Bryan Cranston! Explosions! Ron Perlman! Vroooom! Drive!
The trailer is the equivalent of piecing together all of the tornado action from The Wizard of Oz and selling it as a Twister prequel. Drive is, for the most part, a slow, classy art film with occasional scenes of intense action perforating long shots of Gosling driving around the city, gazing silently ahead and contemplating life. Oh, sure, the actual film does feature car chases and guns -- but if you came for the last two, you might as well just watch the trailer. The marketing team carefully pieced together pretty much every frame of the Fast and the Furious-style mayhem from the film's runtime and said, "Hey, young males -- if you want to see more of this, buy a ticket, brah!" Those dudes then found themselves watching a movie that is about as far from fast or furious as you can get -- the film's lack of dialogue, elongated pauses, and lengthy music sequences gave birth to both critical acclaim and silly Internet memes.
