Even More Vibrant, Neon Posters Highlight Refn's 'Only God Forgives'
"Time to meet the Devil." Ah my eyes, so bright! More neon art to go right along with the film which was lit pretty much entirely by neon lights. Radius-TWC has put out a new poster for Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives, which premiered to boos and cheers in Cannes a few weeks ago. The latest poster has Ryan Gosling front and center, layered with bright red and blue patterns. His poster goes with the other two for the other supporting cast members: his mother Crystal and his nemesis, the "Angel of Vengeance" Chang. As a fan of this divisive, dark, bloody film and Refn's subversive style, I must continue to support it even amidst all the criticism. Another new US trailer is now available (view it here) to compliment these latest posters.
One poster for Kristin Scott Thomas from Only God Forgives, one for Vithaya Pansringarm as Chang:
Here's the other new Only God Forgives poster with Ryan Gosling as Julian front and center, via Yahoo:
Julian (Ryan 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 to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and acts as both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly. Nicolas Winding Refn writes and directs Only God Forgives, arriving this summer after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Radius-TWC will release the film on July 19th next month.
