Three new images from Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives starring Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas

03.20.2013

After the surprising success of 2011's DRIVE, the team of director Nicolas Winding-Refn and Ryan Gosling will try to capture lightning in a bottle a second time with ONLY GOD FORGIVES.  The film is yet another dark tale that finds Gosling as an MMA fighting criminal out to exact revenge on those that were responsible for his brother's death.  It will likely be a bloody affair with a series of intricate characters and a moody soundtrack, as is Winding-Refn's style.  While some didn't dig his commercially successful DRIVE because of that reason, others (like me) will be excited as a result of it. 

Here's the pics:

And, here's the synopsis:

Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.

When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.

I honestly keep forgetting this is coming out, but every time I'm reminded that it is I get a little more stoked.  I love the dark and brutal tones we're getting just from the images and the trailer tease we've seen thus far (see below).  My hope is that we'll get a solid companion piece to DRIVE that could potentially evolve into a Winding-Refn/Gosling trilogy of sorts.  What, am I asking too much, here?

ONLY GOD FORGIVES is slated for release sometime in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I thought Winding-Refn's Valhalla Rising was a pretty sweet slice of art house violence, but haven't seen Bronson yet. Anyone care to vouch for it?

I'll watch anything with these two involved. I watched Bronson I think in 2009 not knowing what it was and was shocked at how freakin cool it was. When Valhalla Rising came out I was pretty excited, so after that I'm in for whatever Winding Refn does, oh yea and Drive is one of my favorite movies ever.

Hardy wouldn't be where he is today without 'Bronson'

his performance is mesmerizing and signified a great talent arriving. The film? Stunning visuals and nice soundtrack although its my least favorite of Refn's filmography (next to Pusher 3), not that its a bad film but after reading about the real dudes life I felt they missed out on a lot of great material. BTW this new flick looks great!

Can't wait to see this. It's one of my top anticipated of the year. If it's half as good as Drive, then we are all in for a great treat.

I think I'm gonna get to go to Gosling's Acting Range for the summer this year, super stoked.

Oh and Bronson is the truth, Y'll.

Bronson is a goddamned masterpeice

And it would be to your great benefit to immediately watch it. Tom Hardy destroys. The soundtrack is phenomenal, especially if you're a Drive fan, and it literally is violent art-house at it's finest. See it.
