Ryan Gosling to stand the test of time

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.
