Watch: Two Stellar Trailers for Refn's Cannes Film 'Only God Forgives'
"Time to meet the devil." Have mercy! Yes, yes, yes. It was officially announced today that Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives, shot in Thailand starring Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas, will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival next month. Fest director Thierry Frémaux called the film "radical and punk, do not expect Drive 2" during the press conference. Two new international, uncut, red band-level trailers have just hit the web and they're both must watch. I am flipping out over the trailers for this film. Pardon my French, but they're fucking fantastic! The music, the shots, everything. Cannot wait to see this!
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 after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May. See the latest teaser poster and stay tuned for reviews.
