Ryan Gosling Is Horribly Battered in New 'Only God Forgives' Poster and Images
Ryan Gosling is far from his usual handsome persona in a fresh poster for his upcoming thriller "Only God Forgives". The 32-year-old actor is featured in a very gruesome look with an awfully bruised and battered face in the one sheet. Though it's a black-and-white poster, it is quite clear that the actor is wearing a blood-smeared shirt under his vest.
In addition to the disturbing poster, the film uncovers two other black-and-white images that feature Gosling in an equally unpleasant look. In one picture, he is seen sporting a swollen eye from a close-up range, while in another, he is shown looking outside a window. Once again, his face is seen battered down.
"Only God Forgives" is set in Bangkok where Gosling plays an Englishman named Julian. 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. After that, 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 brother's killers and "raise hell."
Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release, but unfortunately, Chang wins. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
The crime movie reunites Gosling with director Nicolas Winding Refn after their successful collaboration in "Drive". Winding Refn pens the script in addition to serving behind the lens. Tackling the part of Gosling's mob-boss mother is Kristin Scott Thomas. The film still hasn't got a U.S. release date.
