[From MTV Movies] For Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn's next movie together after "Drive," you'd expect a similar dream-like, violent yarn to match their first collaboration. You may not have been expecting the seriously tripped-out trailer for "Only God Forgives" that popped up a few weeks back.
Now, after an official Cannes line-up announced the duo's return to the festival, two new international (and NSFW) trailers have gone online (via The Playlist), and they give you more of the same but with some extra insight into the story of revenge and Thai boxing.
Check out the trailers above and below and an animated poster at MTV Movies.
"Wanna fight?" Well, no ... but, yes. You know.
Ryan Gosling raises all sorts of bloody hell in "Only God Forgives," the Bangkok-set crime thriller that reunites him with his "Drive" director, Nicolas Winding Refn. Gosling plays the owner of a Thai boxing club that serves as a front for his family's criminal empire who's forced by his crazy mama (Kristin Scott Thomas) to track down the man who killed his brother, a retired police office who calls himself the Angel of Vengeance.
Bullets, fists, swords and an awesome Cliff Martinez score ... you know you're there.
But when? "Only God Forgives" will screen at Cannes in May but it has yet to score a U.S. release date. For now, dig the groovy yet dangerous style of Gosling/Refn in the somewhat NSFW red band trailer, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
You know how Ryan Gosling's always saving people from bar fights and stuff? Well, it looks like it's time he save himself.
In the new poster for "Only God Forgives," his latest collaboration with "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn, Gosling has taken a serious beating. We're talking blood, pus, eye swollen shut, the whole thing. But here's the amazing thing: He still looks kinda sexy.
Guess we'll have to wait until sometime next year to get a glimpse at the other guy (who inevitably looks much worse).
UPDATE: Development on a remake of "Logan's Run" has slowed to a crawl, and now it looks like lead actor Ryan Gosling has dropped the project.
Justin Kroll of Variety tweeted, "Rough news for those LOGAN'S RUN fans, I can confirm Ryan Gosling is no longer attached to the project."
With no lead, and no fewer than four directors adopting (and ditching) the movie, we have to wonder if the "Run" is coming to a permanent halt.
Hollywood's been dying to get the already-prolific Ryan Gosling in the seat of a major studio tentpole, most recently as the lead of the DC Comics adaptation of Green Lantern, but the young actor has stuck mainly to indie films.
Now the time has come, according to Deadline. Warner Bros. is pairing Gosling with "Driver" (an upcoming car chase flick) director Nicolas Winding Refn for a revamp of the 1976 sci-fi film "Logan's Run."
The studio behind "Harry Potter" and the Batman franchise has spent nearly a decade courting directors to helm the remake, which centers on Logan 5, a law enforcer of sorts who goes on the run from his society's mandatory death law. Get More »
When you imagine Danish filmmaker/mad genius Nicolas Winding Refn ("Bronson," "Drive"), do you think of fists, anger, buckets of blood, and… feminine fragrance?
Apparently the cool cat auteur is on a tear of perfume commercials after last month's Gucci spot with Blake Lively, and now an elegantly bonkers new Yves Saint Laurent ad starring none other than redhead du jour Jessica Chastain. Get More »
Just when we thought Blake Lively couldn't possibly get any more gorgeous, she has to go and top herself.
The "Savages" star is Hollywood glamour personified in the new spot for Gucci's fragrance Gucci Première. The commercial was made by "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn and features Lively in a long, glittering, golden gown overlooking the Los Angeles skyline at night. We also see her on a movie set working her own catwalk with a massive fan, perfecting the wind-blown look. Get More »
Last year, Ryan Gosling became the darling of the international film set thanks to his acclaimed collaboration with director Nicolas Winding Refn, "Drive." Now the two are pairing up for another movie and if the new photo from Movieweb is any indication, the title "Only God Forgives" is spot on.
Because only the almighty could forgive what Refn has done to poor Gosling's beautiful face. Get More »
Kids, don't deal drugs. It's truly nothing but damn trouble.
Nicolas Winding Refn's 1996 debut, "Pusher," is a scrappy little crime drama whose familiar premise (a botched deal puts a drug pusher into a lot of debt with a drug lord) somehow seems fresh thanks to the "Drive" director's unique sense of style.
Refn is now executive producing director Luis Prieto's remake of "Pusher," which stars William Coyle as the drug dealer who learns the hard way that he may not have chosen the best career path for himself as he gets on the bad side of his supplier. Get More »
In the latest installment of "When Crazy European Directors Make Us LOL," filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn has confirmed several wild interpretations of his runaway success "Drive," not least of which that Ryan Gosling's wheelman character is a werewolf.
Take that, "Twilight!"
The maker of bonkers movies like "Valhalla Rising" and "Bronson" fanned the flames of fanatic symbolism to The Playlist, where Refn also drew comparisons to Frankenstein, Brothers Grimm fairy Tales, as well as the supernatural connection between he and Gosling. Get More »
With a summer full of superheroes, R-rated comedies, aliens and damn dirty apes, you’re probably ready for a change. Well, look no further than the teaming of heartthrob Ryan Gosling and Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn to give it to you with "Drive," one of the most unconventional crime thrillers to hit Hollywood in some time.
The film garnered high praise at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where Refn won the Best Director prize; and the buzz hit a fever pitch when the trailer went online in July. Get More »
