First Footage of 'Only God Forgives' Teases Violent Ryan Gosling
The first footage for Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn's latest collaboration, "Only God Forgives", has been dropped online. Highlighting an Asian setting, the video offers a quick glimpse at the violent tone of the movie. It sees a man's hand being stabbed with a knife, a gunfight, a boxing fight and other intense scenes. It ends with Gosling hinting that "it's time to meet the devil."
Set in Bangkok, Thailand, "Only God Forgives" sees Gosling playing 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 movie still hasn't got an official U.S. release date, but it has been rumored to be unleashed on May 23 and is expected to premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Also supporting the thriller are Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Burke and Joe Cummings.
