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.

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.
