This summer, at least for a brief moment, Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe are going to make disco, polyester clothes, and outrageous facial hair cool again in “The Nice Guys.” And to go with the ’70s set action comedy, Warner Bros. has put together a pretty nifty retro style trailer for the flick.
Looking like it was pulled out of a box in some archive hidden away in a studio warehouse, the cleverly-aged promo features old school voice-over, vintage title treatment, and video that looks like it’s been warped with time. It’s pretty neat stuff. Here’s the synopsis for the film:
“The Nice Guys” takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.
“The Nice Guys” opens on May 20th. Check out the trailer and a bunch of new featurettes below.
