Watch: Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling Don’t Hold Back in ‘Nice Guys’ Trailer

Mayhem dominates in the new trailer for Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling’s action-comedy “The Nice Guys,” featuring plenty of gunplay, slugging, dead bodies falling off buildings and cars crashing into buildings.

Crowe is an especially violent detective investigating the apparent suicide of a female porn star whose career was on the decline in ’70s Los Angeles. Gosling portrays Holland March as a jittery private eye, a practicing alcoholic with a smart-mouth adolescent daughter.

“How much would you charge to beat up my friend Janet?” she asks a bemused Crowe at one point.

The trailer also features disco dancing along with two instantly recognizable staples of 1970s music: Rod Stewart’s “(I Know) I’m Losing You” and the Hollies’ “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress.”

Near the end of the trailer, Gosling tells Crowe, “Before we deal with the crime of the century, let’s deal with the rotting corpse.”

“Iron Man 3” director Shane Black is helming and Joel Silver is producing. “Nice Guys” re-teams the studio with Black and Silver, both of whom rose to prominence nearly three decades ago via the “Lethal Weapon” franchise. It’s the first major movie that Silver’s produced for Warners since splitting with the studio four years ago.

The movie opens on May 20.
