Two weeks ago, a fantastic gritty red band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives arrived online. Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling reunited with his Drive director for the Thailand-set crime pic that promises to be full of mayhem. Now you can feast your eyes on a brand new poster that features a neon sign of a dragon with a tagline that reads “time to meet the devil.” The eeriness of the poster and the grittiness of the red band trailer makes Only God Forgives one of the most anticipated films of this year. Posted below is the new poster along with the red band trailer just incase you missed it.
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 set to arrive in theaters on July 19th, 2013.
