Kristin Scott Thomas is red in the new poster for Only God Forgives
About a month ago we shared a poster of Ryan Gosling in a blue tinted poster for ONLY GOD FORGIVES (click the link to view). Now we have the new red tinted poster from the film written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn featuring Kristin Scott Thomas. This is still one of my more anticipated film of the year. We here at Flix66 are big supporters of DRIVE and are anxious to see what the Gosling/Refn team can do again. I find the casting of Kristin Scott Thomas to be quite inspired and wouldn’t be surprised if the talented actress is able to pull of a supporting actress nomination for this role.
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, ONLY GOD FORGIVES stars: Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Burke, Yayaying, Vithaya Pansringarm, Byron Gibson, Sahajak Boonthanakit and Gordon Brown. The film opens in theaters on July 19th. (moviefone)
ONLY GOD FORGIVES official synopsis: 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.
