First Red-Band Trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s ONLY GOD FORGIVES Starring Ryan Gosling

     April 3, 2013


The first red-band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives is now available.  Star Ryan Gosling is positively seeing red in this color-saturated and atmospheric look at Refn’s new revenge thriller.  A little bit of Thai karaoke plays the overture for a few brutal scenes which force you to infer what this particular tale is about.  Gosling sums it up nicely with a simple question at the end of the trailer.  I cannot wait to see more.

Also Kristin Scott Thomas and Vithaya Pansringarm, Only God Forgives opens July 19th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Check out the trailer below and head over to Yahoo! for HD:

Here’s a synopsis for Only God Forgives:

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.

  • paul tracy

    looks like it borders on parody. but it’s just a slice. maybe that’s the point.


  • This is looks tremendous!

    Can’t wait.

  • Jamesy

    Looks like it will have some crazy over the top fight scenes, in a type of self mocking/parody way…if that makes any sense?

  • Christina

    I don’t know if I’m crazy or something else, but I f***ing loved the trailer! Can’t wait to see this!

    I don’t get the parody everyone else is getting. The last line is funny but certainly not parody funny.. And the movie will easily be one of the more violent this decade.. But this has a serious tone to me,

  • Mickey

    I loved Drive. I’m 99 % sure I’m gonna love this too.

  • ch

    I don’t think people understand the meaning behind certain words, or perhaps they see very different things in this trailer. What ‘parody’ are you people talking about? I think this looks really good and if it comes close to matching the quality of Drive, then I am most definitely interested to say the least.

    A little digging, and I found this song is from tur kue kwam fun (music box)


  • schneebles

    Yeah, the people talking about ‘parody’ must not have ever seen a Refn film. If you’re talking about the use of music, Drive used cheesy club style music for dramatic effect, not as parody, but as a tonal element of the type of LA he wished to present. I don’t know what else you could be talking about. The ultra-stylization (another Refn hallmark)? I just don’t see the ‘parody’ of it. What is it parodying?

    Does anyone know if the soundrack for this film has been leaked?

    The only interesting thing is CS Thomas performance. Gosling could have been replaced by a wax doll with a dumb expression on it’s face, you wouldn’t have noticed the difference, that’s just how lame his performance is.
    The whole movies is just stupid, predictable and boring ……. and I loved Drive
