Only God Forgives – new trailer

Here’s the newly released trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn‘s new film, Only God Forgives.

Like Refn‘s last film (the awesome), Drive, Only God Forgives stars Ryan Gosling and the film follows Gosling‘s Julian, who runs a Thai boxing club as a front for his family’s drug smuggling operation. 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 and Julian’s mother Jenna (played by Kristin Scott Thomas) – the head a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body, before dispatching Julian to avenge his brothers death.

Refn has described the film as, “stream of consciousness.” Adding. “It’s based on real emotions but set in a heightened reality. It’s a fairy tale.” Sounds intriguing. Check out the trailer below:

Only God Forgives hits US cinemas on 23rd May. Unfortunately, as yet, there’s no word on a UK release date. Shouldn’t be long after though – should it?
