MovieFone has been given a hypnotic new character poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives. This features a neon and airbrushed Kristin Scott Thomas and sets the tone of the film nicely.
The film follows Julian, who runs a Thai boxing club as a front for his family’s drug smuggling operation, and who is forced by his mother Jenna to find and kill the individual responsible for his brother’s recent death.
Gosling reteams with his Drive director, with Kristin Scott Thomas and Vithaya Pansringarm supporting.
Only God Forgives is out in the US on July 19th, with Ireland announced as August 2nd.
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.
