Red Band Trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’

The second collaboration between Gosling and Refn will hit on July 19th…

only-god-forgives-sliceHigh up on my list of films to look forward to in 2013 is Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, which re-teams him with Ryan Gosling after their successful collaboration Drive two years ago. This time around, it’s a western of sorts, set within the world of underground fighting in Thailand. It’s also got a criminal element to it and looks absolutely gorgeous in its brutality, going by this Red Band Trailer that just dropped. The film also finally has a set release date, which is July 19th, but it might screen at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival too. Check it out after the jump and get excited for the latest pairing between Gosling and Refn! Could Kristin Scott Thomas live up to the Best Supporting Actress hype we’ve made for her?

Well, no worries on this one being right up my alley. Don’t know about Oscar chances though. It’s going to be such a niche film, even if the quality is there in supporting actress/screenplay/cinematography/etc., it will get boxed out by bigger, more Academy accessible films.

I feel like if Gosling is really good as I expect him to be, he could get some attention for Actor. He’s in a couple major things this year, and I imagine he’ll miss for Place Beyond the Pines, so he could turn up here.

Supporting actor, supporting actress. I’m pretty damn’ sure.


*sigh* This looks pretty awesome. Drive turned out to be one of my favorite films of all time, so I have high hopes for this.

This is high up on my list for the year too. What a beautiful trailer.


Yes…. Yes… Yes, Yes, Yes…. yes…. yes… my personal Oscars are already being given to Refn.
