Ryan Gosling's odd ball Lost River movie and directing debut hasn't received a great response. But one thing it does have going for it is Matt Smith screaming "look at my muscles" over and over. Behold the first freaky trailer right now.

The reviews for Lost River haven't been mixed — they're mostly bad. And that's a shame because Gosling did manage to scrounge up a really stellar cast. Plus a lot of the visuals in this trailer are pretty exciting. Here's the official synopsis:

In the fictional urban wasteland of Lost River — actually today's Detroit, where the movie was shot — single mom Billy (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks) is a part-time waitress raising her two sons, teenage Bones (Iain De Caestecker, the Scottish actor on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and a toddler. Bones likes the girl next door, Rat (Saoirse Ronan), so-called because her other closest friend is a large, amiable rat named Nick. This part of Lost River is ruled by a bully named Bully (ex-Dr. Who Matt Smith); he patrols the neighborhood in a convertible with an upholstered chair mounted on the back seat and shouts through a bullhorn, "Welcome to Bully Town."

Lost River will screen at this year's SXSW and later hit theaters and video on demand April 10th.
