One month from today, Warner Bros. will release The Nice Guys in theaters, featuring the all-star duo of Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. The promotional tour for this comedy will start up soon, and it seems these actors need to work out their issues before attending junkets and red carpet premieres together. Warner Bros. has debuted a new series of webisodes where these stars take their problems to a couples counselor, and the result is quite hilarious.
The first four episodes have already debuted online through the Warner Bros. YouTube page, although it isn't known how many of these webisodes we'll get until the May 20 release date. Both actors are essentially playing different versions of themselves, with Gosling trying to push the closed-off Crowe to start opening up and share his emotions with their counselor, played by The Big Bang Theory star Melissa Rauch. These episodes run anywhere from a minute to three minutes long, and it will be interesting to see how these therapy sessions evolve in future webisodes.
Oscar winner Russell Crowe and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling star in Silver Pictures' action comedy The Nice Guys from director Shane Black. 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 film also stars young actress Angourie Rice, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Keith David and Oscar winner Kim Basinger. Shane Black directed the film from an original screenplay he wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi. Joel Silver produced the film under his Silver Pictures banner. Ken Kao, Hal Sadoff, Alex Walton and Michael J. Malone served as executive producers. The Nice Guys is slated for release on May 20, 2016, the film will be distributed in North America by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The Nice Guys has been rated R for violence, sexuality, nudity, language and brief drug use.
The Nice Guys will go up against Sony's animated comedy The Angry Birds Movie and Universal's comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising in what should be a very interesting weekend at the box office. It isn't too often that three different comedies go up against each other in the same weekend, so we'll have to wait and see who comes out on top. Until then, check out the first four webisodes from The Nice Guys, and stay tuned for more as we get closer to the May 20 release date.
