WHO Ryan Gosling

THE MOVIE "The Nice Guys"

THE DEAL The star of "Drive" will continue his string of roughneck roles ("Blue Valentine," "A Place Beyond the Pines") in this detective thriller, which has just received a release date of June 17, 2016, Deadline reports. Set in 1970s Los Angeles, the movie stars Gosling as a hard-luck private eye who teams with a leg-breaker-for-hire (Russell Crowe) to solve the case of a missing girl. The film is directed and co-written by Shane Black of "Lethal Weapon" and "Iron Man 3."

THE DEAL The 72-year-old special-effects wizard, best known for "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Blade Runner," will unveil his latest project at the Toronto International Film Festival next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. His short film "UFOTOG" (the title

suggests spacecraft and press photographers) will be presented in digital 3-D at 120 frames per second, five times the normal rate and more than twice the rate of Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" movies, which have struck some critics as flat and unappealing. Trumbull's film will screen at the Toronto festival's "Future of Cinema" conference.


THE MOVIE "Double Indemnity"

THE DEAL Billy Wilder's definitive film noir, starring Barbara Stanwyck as a femme fatale who lures an average joe (Fred MacMurray) into a sordid murder plot, celebrates its 70th anniversary next week. A local screening will be presented by Victoria Wilson, author of "A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940."
