Teaser Poster & Motion Poster For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ – Starring Ryan Gosling
Radius-TWC has revealed this teaser poster and gif poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s revenge-tingered thriller, ‘Only God Forgives.’ After their pairing on ‘Drive,’ my favourite film of 2011, Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling are collaborating once again on the film.

DreamWorks are reportedly in negotiations with key voice stars to return as well.
‘The Croods’ centers on a family of cavemen – Emma Stone voices the independent-minded daughter, Nicolas Cage the stuck-in-his-ways father, among other family members – and the human (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who guides them through a fantastical world.
