Only a few hours ago we got relatively reliable word Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives will play In Competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and not the first teaser poster for the film has arrived and it's lighting up the Internet.
I'm not sure about most, but when I look at it all I can think of is Criterion's Blu-ray cover for Nobuhiko Obayashi's House. I have no idea of the two films will share a thematic resemblance... just an observation. You could also say they may have took some inspiration from Rizon Parein's neon sign posters for Drive. Who knows?
Only God Forgives is set for a July 19 release and finds Ryan Gosling reteaming with his Drive director in a Bangkok-set thriller with Gosling playing Julien, a drug kingpin tasked with avenging his brother's death, but a mysterious, unhinged policeman is following his every move. Kristin Scott Thomas co-stars.
