(PCM) AMC Theaters premiered the Red Band (+18) trailer for The Nice Guys starring Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe today, giving us our first look at writer-director Shane Black’s (Iron Man 3, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) latest crime mystery.
Set in 1970’s Los Angeles, The Nice Guys follows private investigator Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and Jackson Healy (Russel Crowe), a hired bully, as they investigate the muder of a famous porn star and the kidnapping of the District Attorney’s daughter.
Death and violence abound in the Red Band trailer for The Nice Guys, as well as a few humurous moments between Crowe and Gosling.
“I think we’ve really lucked out,” Black told People Magazine during a recent interview about the film. “Whether this thing is a comedy with action or a thriller with jokes, one thing that’s very clear is these two are extremely funny. People will enjoy seeing the two of them.”
The Nice Guys also stars Kim Bassinger in her first role with Russel Crowe since 1997’s L.A. Confidential, alongisde Keith David, Matt Bomer, Beau Knapp, Angourie Rice, and Margaret Qualley.
