It’s hard to top Ryan Gosling on the big screen, but the city of Sydney gives it a red-hot bang in the action-packed trailer for his upcoming film.
Universal Pictures has released a first look at Gosling’s The autumn manwhich flew under the radar when it was filmed in Australia in late 2022 and early 2023, shutting down the Harbor Bridge for several days of production and taking over the iconic Opera House strip.
In the three-minute trailer, we get a glimpse of the high-octane stunt, filmed on the bridge, which sees Gosling’s character holding on to the back of a speeding truck.
British actress Emily Blunt co-stars in the film and appears in a dramatic stunt scene filmed on a Sydney beach.
The autumn man – adapted from an ’80s TV series – follows retired movie stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling), who is lured back to work on a mega-budget studio film directed by his ex-girlfriend, Jody Moreno (Blunt).
There’s also a missing movie star plot twist, with Colt becoming embroiled in a real criminal plot as the search for the star deepens.
Gosling also filmed dramatic scenes in Martin Place in November 2022, which are briefly seen in the trailer.
The Canadian actor’s wife, Eva Mendes, spent several months in Sydney with their two young daughters during filming.
The high-profile figures were spotted several times during their time Down Under, with Mendes photographed at a park in Rose Bay, trick-or-treating with her children and an incognito Gosling on Halloween in Bondi, and shopping in Paddington in November.
Speaking to news.com.au at the time, Mendes said the wildlife had been the biggest culture shock, after being confronted by a huntsman spider that she documented on Instagram.
“This thing was huge. It was crazy,” she said. “I just started screaming like a psychopath.”
Mendes said even Gosling, who she said had a calm energy, was shocked.
“I don’t normally speak for him, but I can say he was absolutely shocked by the size and ability to move so quickly,” she laughed.
Mendes said she enjoyed flying under the radar while she was down.
“Australians are so cool and so warm and we feel so welcome,” she said.
The autumn man isn’t the only buzzy film Sydney has starred in lately.
The trailer for Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell’s upcoming romantic comedy, Everyone but youwas released in October and featured so much focus on the port city it looked like a Destination NSW advert.
