Teaser trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River arrives: watch now

A sparse, strange teaser trailer has landed online for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, dark fantasy Lost River.

Introducing us to Iain De Caestecker and a spangly-jacket-wearing Matt Smith, it's, frankly, odd . Really, really odd.

There's no sign of other stars Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan or Ben Mendelsohn, but the teaser definitely has our interest, its nightmarish imagery hinting that Gosling has picked up a few things from the likes of Nicolas Winding Refn and Derek Cianfrance.

Check it out below...

A genre-spanning fantasy noir, Lost River sees young Billy (De Caestecker) and his mother (Hendricks) swept into a fantasy underworld.

Lost River is yet to receive a UK release date.
