Releasing this week in the UK, The Nice Guys stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in a retro 70’s buddy action comedy like they used to make when Shai Hussain, our guest of this week, and I used to be a young men. Does Shane Black capture some of the magic of movies like Another 48 hours and Lethal Weapon? Will the movie be able to find an audience squeezed between superhero franchises?
All that and more (like the guys that would make Shai question his sexuality) in this week’s episode of Upodcast.
Here’s the trailer and synopsis:
“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.”
In UK Cinemas June 3, 2016
