We've finally gotten a glimpse of Ryan Gosling's new film, but some fans will be disappointed the heartthrob is behind the camera not in front of it.

The Oscar-nominated actor has released the first look at his directorial debut Lost River, which he also wrote, for this year's Cannes Film Festival.

The surreal 60-second teaser features ominous shots of burning buildings, abandoned housing estates and a young man bolting across a rusting bridge.

Doctor Who actor Matt Smith is also shown cruising through a rundown city chanting "look at my muscles" in a sequinned jacket.

The fantasy thriller, previously titled How To Catch A Monster, stars Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn, Christina Hendricks and Saoirse Ronan.

Gosling's squeeze Eva Mendes is also in the cast.

In a letter, Gosling credited his Place Beyond the Pines and Drive directors Derek Cianfrance and Nicolas Winding Refn with inspiring his own filmmaking style.
