Ryan Gosling and Drive director Nicolas Wining Refn have reunited for the upcoming Only God Forgives, which looks like it’s going to be as tense as their previous effort. Now we get a fresh look with a new trailer.
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.
An August 2nd UK release is set, with the film reaching the US on July 19th.
