Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper go head-to-head in new film

Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, together at last! Fans of both actors will be delighted to know that the "Sexiest Man Alive" rivals are set to appear in their first film together, "The Place Beyond the Pines," next March — and that there's finally a trailer available to showcase their considerable talents.

It's a match up made particularly sweet thanks to a campaign fans waged in 2011, when Cooper was named People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" — and petitions immediately surfaced asserting that Gosling was the better choice, and was robbed of the crown.

But with "The Place Beyond the Pines," it seems everybody wins. The trailer shows Gosling as a very blond stunt motorcycle driver who learns he has a child with a former flame. He decides to provide for the child by robbing banks. Cooper plays the rookie cop who goes after him. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will unfold "in three chunks, taking place over 15 years." 

"The Place Beyond the Pines" is set to open March 20, 2013.
