Following the briefest of teasers, we’ve finally got a new look at one of our most-anticipated films of the year, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling‘s Drive follow-up Only God Forgives. Set in the Thailand underground boxing world, the film seems like a surefire bet for Cannes Film Festival, before its late May release in France.
Three new high-resolution images have landed, thanks to Allocine, who also tell us an official trailer is expected to arrive within two weeks. As for a possible United States release, Radius-TWC have the rights and we heard late last year they were planning a May bow, but considering we haven’t heard a peep from them, I wouldn’t count on it. In the meantime, check out the new images above and below, also featuring Vithaya Pansringarm and Kristen Scott Thomas.
Julian (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 directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
Only God Forgives is expected to premiere at Cannes before opening in May.
