Ryan Gosling Hearts Michelle Williams in ‘Blue Valentine’ Trailer (VIDEO)
After hearing rave reviews from film critics at the Cannes and Sundance Film festivals, regular ol’ movie fans are finally getting a glimpse at Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ romantic drama, Blue Valentine.
The trailer shows the gorgeous actors falling in love in typical hipster fashion, with lots of flannel, ironic tap-dancing and at least one leisure suit. But the film isn’t all wine and roses; as the title indicates, times turn dark for the on-screen couple, who have said their sex scenes became “toxic” during shooting.
Those very intimate scenes have thrown a wrench into the film’s much-anticipated December release, as the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) slapped it with a dreaded NC-17 rating. Now the filmmakers and the Weinstein Company may be scrambling to edit the movie into an acceptable R-rated cut.
The racy sex scenes are nowhere to be found in the trailer seen here:
