The UK ‘Only God Forgives’ Trailer Is Amazing

If you haven’t yet seen the UK trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives starring Ryan Gosling, it’s your civic duty to watch it now. It’s the best trailer for the film yet. I had to go to a doctor after watching it because it gave me a 24 hour erection. Still have no idea what it’s about? Never fear, synopsis is here.

Bangkok. Julian (Ryan Gosling) runs a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. He has everything he wants for and is respected in the criminal underworld though, deep inside, he feels empty.

When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance (Vithaya Pansringarm). Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas) – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.

Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release… but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.

This. Sounds. Awesome.
