Only God Forgives slightly divided critics when it debuted at Cannes, with some suggesting it was a truly exceptional film that more than lived up to the idea of Ryan Gosling reuniting with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, while others were a little underwhelmed.
Well US audiences will be able to make up their own mind on July 19th, with UK cinemas getting it on August 2nd. And now a new poster has arrived, showing us Gosling looking very red and blue.
The movie is about Julian (Gosling), who lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for his 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.
