Pop Art Style Poster For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ – Starring Ryan Gosling (Fan-Made)
Following the release of the fantastic first trailer for ‘Only God Forgives,’ Hartter has put together this top-notch poster for the film. After their pairing on ‘Drive,’ my favourite film of 2011, director Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling are collaborating again on the revenge-tingered thriller. In ‘Only God Forgives,’ Gosling plays Julian, the son of a Florida-based crime syndicate boss (Kristen Scott Thomas), who is plying the drug trade in Thailand with his brother. When his addicted sibling gets involved in a murder and gets tangled up with a cop who calls himself the Angel of Vengeance, Gosling’s character, who is proficient in mixed martial arts, is compelled to seek revenge on behalf of his mother. Look out for ‘Only God Forgives’ later this year. The official synopsis for the film can be read below.
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty. When JULIAN’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand.

The official synopsis for the film can be read below.
We are incredibly sad to report that the renowned film critic, author, historian, TV host and Pulitzer Prize winner Roger Ebert has died of complications from cancer, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. He was 70. Ebert, who has written for the Chicago Sun-Times for 46 years, was the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize. He was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2002, losing his jaw and his ability to speak in a subsequent surgery. But he later resumed writing full-time and also returned to television.
On his blog and on twitter he chronicled his struggle with cancer and just two days ago, he penned a beautiful post saying he was taking a “leave of presence.” Ebert closed the piece with, “So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.” Rest peacefully, you incredible soul. You may have passed, but your influence will never die.
