Nicolas Winding Refn Wrecks Ryan Gosling's Face For First ONLY GOD FORGIVES Poster
The first poster for Only God Forgives, Nicholas Winding Refn's follow-up to Drive features a quite battered (but still beautiful) Ryan Gosling. Set in Asia but with the structure and tone of a western, you certainly wouldn't get that from this poster, which looks like a Criterion style DVD for a Gosling remake of Raging Bull. Kidding aside, Refn's film which is in post production does revolve around the boxing world, on which this key art clearly places its emphasis.
Julian 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, 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.
