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.
Say you've decided to splice together the DNA of two people to create the ultimate being a la Mr. Sinister in 'X-Men.' Now say you've chosen Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell as your two subjects. Would you expect the resultant person to be equal parts handsome and funny? Well, that's kind of what you get. (See the photo evidence above.)
We're still unsure of when we're going to get a solid look at Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling's post-'Drive' collaboration, 'Only God Forgives'. The film is opening in May in some select overseas territories (France among them), and it's been theorized that it will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, also in May, but most of the globe is apparently going to have to wait patiently. Until it is made known for sure, we'll have to make do with some new photos. Find them all after the break.
To watch 'The Place Beyond the Pines' is to observe characters making discoveries. Discoveries about their past, their environment, their heritage. When the revelations come they aren't met with gasps or dropped objects, but with an understanding, an acceptance that, yes, this is, indeed, the way things are.
While you'd swear with every bone in your body that this vast, rich, symbol-heavy tale was surely based on a thick doorstopper of a novel, the surprising fact remains that it is, actually, an original screenplay. It seems, though, a natural progression after the character portraiture of Derek Cianfrance's last film 'Blue Valentine.' This new one has the essence of 'Blue Valentine' but blown open far and wide.
For most first time directors, attracting big names to your movie is a huge challenge, but when you are a first-time director who also happens to be Ryan Gosling, you probably have to beat back the talent with an oar or something. The latest piece of the 'How to Catch a Monster' ensemble is the increasingly busy Oscar nominee, Saoirse Ronan.
Two fandoms are uniting and the world may implode: Matt Smith of 'Doctor Who' has just signed on to play the male lead in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, 'How to Make a Monster.' Gosling fans and 'Doctor Who' fans, together at last. Think of the memes!
