New poster for Bangkok-set thriller ‘Only God Forgives’
A new teaser poster for director Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Ryan Gosling second collaboration has been released online at Entertainment Weekly. Featuring a cool neon dragon logo and the tagline “time to meet the devil”, it’s great to see a different and more creative poster for the film. Most of the promotional material for the film so far has consisted of Ryan Gosling’s bruised and battered face, the juxtaposition of the two has an intriguing effect.
Refn and Gosling’s first collaboration was Drive and they have teamed up again for Bangkok-set thriller, Only God Forgives. Gosling plays Julien, a proprietor of a Thai boxing club in Bangkok who also doubles as a front for his family’s drug-smuggling operation. His life grows more complicated when his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) demands he avenges his brother’s death.
Tom Burke, Vithaya Pansingarm and Byron Gibson co-star, Only God Forgives opens in France 22 May 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed. According to the poster, it’ll be out 19 July in the US.
