Film District have released a new international trailer for Drive! It’s almost identical to the previous one released, though there are a few new shots (mostly of Carey!) that haven’t been released yet. Check it out below:
Steve McQueen’s sex addiction drama Shame, has an official UK release date of January 13, 2012, according to an Empire Online exclusive report.
The highly anticipated film, starring Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie, promises “a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.”
In the action drama Drive, actress Carey Mulligan plays Irene, the mother of a young son whose father (Oscar Isaacs) is in prison. One day, Driver (Ryan Gosling) meets Irene in an elevator ride at his apartment and he becomes transfixed. When trouble starts, Driver finds himself embroiled even further in Irene’s life.
Following the FilmDistrict Studio panel in Hall H at Comic-Con, Carey Mulligan sat down for a roundtable and talked about how Nicolas Refn was on her fantasy wish list of directors that she wanted to work with, the challenge of making a film where the dialogue has been stripped away, how she wishes she had more stunt work to do, and that she would love to play a butt-kicking heroine in an action movie, but preferably without a spandex costume.
Question: It seems like you’ve been working a lot lately.
CAREY MULLIGAN: Does it? That’s awful.
Is it true that you hadn’t worked in awhile before you made Drive?
MULLIGAN: I didn’t work for a year after Wall Street. I finished that in November, and then it was the following October that I did Drive, so I took a year off. I didn’t do anything at all, really. I just hung around.
Here’s our first look at Carey and Michael Fassbender in Shame!

Carey is currently at Comic-Con, where she is going to be at the FilmDistrict Studio Panel, which is showing exclusive footage of Drive along with co-stars Ryan Gosling, Ron Perlman and Christina Hendricks! It also looks like she’s gone back to her adorable short blonde pixie crop – double yay! As soon as anything pops up online we’ll be sure to bring you all the goods, so stay tuned!
