New trailer arrives for Drive

New skiddy, crashy car film lands. Looks like it could be worthwhile...

Us petrolheaded cinemagoers are getting a bit spoiled at the moment. This year we've got Cars 2, Drive Angry (replete with Amber Heard) and - if you're a bit hard of thinking - Fast Five, the fifth in the Fast and Furious franchise.

But there's more. Like this cryptically-titled number.

Drive, which stars Ryan Gosling (Half Nelson), Carey Mulligan (Wall Street II), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Christina Henricks (Mad Men) focuses on an LA stuntman with a tidy little sideline in getaway driving.

After a botched heist, 'Driver' (Gosling) discovers that there's a price on his head - massive car destruction, many skids and several chases ensue. Which all sounds rather jolly.

We're not the only ones that think so - its director, Nicolas Winding Refn won Best Director at Cannes Film Festival, where it also got nominated in the Palme d'Or category.

Watch the trailer below for more. And remember to check it out in the cinema from September 23.
