New Trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s ONLY GOD FORGIVES Starring Ryan Gosling
A brand new trailer for director Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Only God Forgives has been released online. The film was met with some mixed reviews at the Cannes Film Festival a month ago, but hopefully some changes have been made to help the film play a little better. Gosling stars as Julian, a man living in exile in Bangkok after killing a cop. Julian runs a Thai boxing club as a front for a drug smuggling operation when things take a turn for the worse after his brother is murdered, and his mother instructs him to “raise hell“. The film looks much more stylized than Gosling and Refn’s Drive, but it looks every bit as bad ass. The trailer highlights much of the revenge storyline and Cliff Martinez’s score. Hit the jump to take a look!
Only God Forgives is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, stars Ryan Gosling and Kristen Scott Thomas and is reported to hit theaters on July 19th, 2013.
Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristen Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
