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?
