After six minutes worth of clips and various trailers, there’s nothing more we need to see from Only God Forgives to get us into theaters this July following a Cannes premiere this Wednesday, but for those still on the fence, even more footage has arrived. We’re steering clear of these three new international clips for Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling’s Drive follow-up set in the Thailand boxing underworld, but curious eyes can view them directly below and return in a few days for our take from the premiere.
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 premieres at Cannes before a July 19th debut.
