“It’s way more extreme,” Ryan Gosling recently told us when asked how Only God Forgives compares to his previous collaboration with Nicolas Winding Refn, 2011′s Drive. After a tiny glimpse, the first red band trailer has arrived for the film set in the Thailand underground boxing world and we have to say that the actor is right on the money.
While Refn’s love for a vibrant color palette and ultra-violence is still apparent here, this teaser hints at an even more dream (or perhaps nightmare) like world this film is set in. A surefire bet for Cannes Film Festival, we’ve also got exclusive confirmation from Radius-TWC the film will be hitting US theaters on July 19th. So check out the stunning look below for what Gosling also told us is “wildly different” than Drive, and listen to the song used in the trailer, PROUD‘s Tur Kue Kwam Fun (She Is My Dream).
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, also featuring Vithaya Pansringarm and Kristen Scott Thomas, opens on July 19th, 2013.

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
