Nicholas Winding Refn Threatens Moviegoers in Jest (We Hope) in ‘Don’t Talk’ PSA

Nicholas Winding Refn Threatens Moviegoers in Jest (We Hope) in 'Don't Talk' PSA

The Alamo Drafthouse has a strict “No Talking, No Texting” policy, as the theater chain famously proved when it shamed a viewer who was kicked out of their theater for doing just that — by putting her angry voicemail on the Internet for all to hear. But that’s not only time the Drafthouse has issued a warning to its patrons.

The champions of the grassroots “rude audience member shaming” movement are back again with the latest in their series of celebrity “Don’t Talk” PSA’s. With the backdrop of the ominous score from “Only God Forgives,” Nicholas Winding Refn invites you to see his latest film, but warns against using your phone in the theater. Maybe he won’t physically harm you, but he has a loyal, tough-guy friend — a friend named Ryan Gosling — who won’t be so kind. Watch the promo below.
