Heading into the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, ‘Only God Forgives’ floated near the top of our must-see list because it marked the next collaboration between ‘Drive’ director Nicolas Winding Refn and his brooding star, Ryan Gosling. We knew little about the film beyond the fact that it takes places in the seedy, sleazy world of Thailand’s kick-boxing community. And Gosling’s handsome face was going to get kicked around … a lot.
What are the critics saying about Refn’s latest work? Some are warming up to it. Others are harshly dismissing it. Either way, it is the talk of the festival today.
With 'Drive,' Ryan Gosling and director Nicolas Winding Refn creating a haunting and brutal crime flick for the ages. The duo look to recreate that magic with the upcoming 'Only God Forgives,' which moves the action to Thailand but maintains their last film's slick style and uncomfortable violence. Three incredibly NSFW clips from the film have arrived and it certainly looks like Refn and Gosling are bringing their A-game.
'Only God Forgives,' starring Ryan Gosling before his "break from acting," is prepping to make its premiere at this year's Cannes, the same place 'Drive' debuted in 2011. The film festival is just around the corner (May 16), so to prepare you for what we're about to see, here's are two all-new trailers, featuring some pretty intense footage.
After the awesomeness that is 'Drive,' we're psyched to see what happens when Ryan Gosling re-teams with his 'Drive' director Nicolas Winding Refn. That film is 'Only God Forgives,' and now there's a red band trailer that points out it's going to be violent.
Ryan Gosling had been attached to star in his first big studio action film - a remake of the 1976's 'Logan's Run' - with frequent collaborator Nicholas Winding-Refn ('Drive'). But now Gosling has dropped out of the project and that leaves us wondering if the 'Logan's Run' remake will ever happen.
Iconic character 'Barbarella' is coming back, but this time she's headed to the small screen with a big name attached: Nicolas Winding Refn, director of last year's fantastic 'Drive,' is attached to direct and produce a new series.
After 'Drive,' Nicolas Winding Refn was hot. Sure, the film did just so-so stateside, but he also won the best director prize at Cannes. And though he's in post-production on his upcoming 'Only God Forgives,' word has hit that he may be producing a prequel to the 80's cult classic 'Maniac Cop.'
