The new trailer for writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives is now available. It’s a much more conventional trailer than we’ve seen previously, but no less powerful for it. If anything, this new cut should help to sell audiences on the brutal revenge thriller whether or not they happen to be fans of Refn and star Ryan Gosling. We get a few new looks at the film’s supporting cast this time around, including the antagonist played by Vithaya Pansringarm, but Kristin Scott Thomas still drives the plot forward with ferocity.
Only God Forgives opens July 19th. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
