Radius TWC released the new trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s upcoming Only God Forgives that premiered at Cannes last month. Though the film seemed to received mixed reception, one thing that has remained constant is versatility and amazement that many have with Kristin Scott Thomas.
Ryan Gosling also stars and what is sure to have a large following from lovers of Refn’s last film Drive (2011), the film will offer some charm to the summer release slate.
The film’s synopsis reads as follows:
Julian (Gosling), an American fugitive from justice, runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his drug business.
His mother, the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body of her favorite son, Billy. Julian’s brother has just been killed after having savagely murdered a young prostitute. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the heads of the murderers from Julian.
But first, Julian must confront Chang, a mysterious retired policeman – and figurehead of a divine justice – who has resolved to scourge the corrupt underworld of brothels and fight clubs.
The film opens nationwide on July 19th.
