Watch: Ryan Gosling in Refn's 'Only God Forgives' Red Band Trailer
After a low quality teaser arrived earlier this year, an impressive red band trailer for Only God Forgives, director Nicolas Winding Refn's reunion with his Drive star Ryan Gosling, has arrived. While there are certainly flares of drive with the visual style and brutal violence, this looks like a much stranger film and the trailer isn't exactly forthcoming with a story. That being said, this trailer does the trick, and doesn't need much of Gosling to shine with only a few lines. It's the haunting music and gorgeous cinematography that really pops and Gosling is just icing on the cake. Plus, Kristen Scott Thomas looks fantastic. Watch it!
Here's the red band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives, originally from 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 sometime this year.
