First Trailer for Shane Black’s Comedic Noir ‘The Nice Guys’

Ryan Gosling And Russell Crowe

Warner Bros has released the first full, NSFW trailer for Shane Black‘s comedic thriller The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, and it looks great.

Described as a “spiritual sequel” to Black’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the movie follows muscle for hire, Jackson Healy (Crowe) and private detective Holland March (Gosling) whose paths cross when a porn star commits suicide, and looks just as clever and entertaining as Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Set in 1970s L.A., the film also stars Kim Basinger, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, and Ty Simpkins. The Nice Guys is set to open on May 20th, 2016 next summer. Watch the first official trailer and poster below.

That gun throwing scene was gold. Goddamn, that pool shot. I’m all in. Nice to see Kim and Russell reunite. Reminds me of L.A. Confidential.

‘The Nice Guys’ takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired leg-breaker 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.
