I am dying to see Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives”, his follow-up to “Drive” with his new BFF Ryan Gosling. I’m also kinda dying to see Ryan Gosling doing Muay Thai boxing. I mean, I’ve seen a LOT of Muay Thai boxing in my time, and it never seems to amaze me just how badly Westerners do it. But Gosling being one of those method actors, I’m uber curious to see how he is in the role. There was a brief clip from the film from a little whiles back that looked pretty good, so maybe that’s an indication of what to expect from the film’s action scenes.
Anyhoo. Check out three new images from “Only God Forgives” below.
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.
When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.
The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Burke, Byron Gibson, and Vithaya Pansringarm, the fellow with the sword below.
Look for it sometime in 2013.
