First Look: Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling are Back and Battered in “Only God Forgives”

First Look: Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling are Back and Battered in "Only God Forgives"

After last year’s brutal “Drive,” director Nicolas Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling joined forces again — for an even more violent film: “Only God Forgives.” Their upcoming feature takes place in the shady world of embezzlement and boxing in Thailand – and the first black and white photos shows some Depression-Era-worthy gloom.  The film should premiere later this year.  Official synopsis and more photos below:

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.

Hard to get excited about further Gosling-Refn collaborations, since Drive was an unrealistic, poorly conceived mess with a soundtrack that sounded as if chosen by a bunch of 7-year-old Swedish girls on a sleepover (who also chose the leading man's silly jacket).


awesome to the max!
