‘Only God Forgives’ Teaser: Nicolas Winding Refn Introduces Ryan Gosling to the Devil

Only God Forgives Header

It’s in French, and it’s only 20 seconds, but we take what we can get when it comes to anything Nicolas Winding Refn has to show. Plus, we have several translation programs, so we fear no French.

Refn’s latest — as you probably know — shows him shoving Ryan Gosling into a violent world again, only this time he’s playing a gangster who seeks to settle a score with Bangkok policeman inside a Thai boxing ring. So far, all the marketing has featured black eyes and bruises, and it doesn’t appear as if the swelling will go down anytime soon.

Check out this brief tease for yourself:

The French: “You want to fight?” — “It’s time to meet the devil.” Also, there’s a guy screaming in there somewhere.

The best thing about this, the absolute best thing, is that no matter how standard it looks as a crime drama, we all know that Refn will have something different in store for us.

May 23rd can’t come soon enough.

Correction: The earlier version of this article incorrectly swapped the roles, mislabeling Gosling as the policeman. Our apologies.
