Ryan Gosling has been voted as the actor most likely to stand the test of time in the movie industry.
Fans of the 'Gangster Squad' star believe the 32-year-old actor will still be a popular actor later in life, with 52% of Britons questioned in a nationwide Cineworld survey of more than 21,000 film fans predicting he will have plenty of staying power.
Gosling beat off competition from Ryan Reynolds (23%) and Daniel Radcliffe (19%) to claim the title. Johnny Depp was named the leading man of choice in the 1980s nostalgia poll, with nearly half (43%) of Brits choosing the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star ahead of 'Top Gun' actor Tom Cruise (22%) . Cineworld Head of Film, Roy Gower, said: “The 80s was a fantastic time for romantic comedy films and so many from that era still rank among our favourites.
"There is a real trend for nostalgia among the British at the moment – we’ve recognised that and are giving film fans and romantics nationwide the chance to see one of their best-loved 80s classics."
'An Officer and a Gentleman', which was originally released in 1982, is being screened on June 11 for one day only at Cineworld cinemas nationwide. Advanced tickets can be purchased at www.cineworld.co.uk.
