The first official stills from Only God Forgives finds Ryan Gosling's Julian ready to fight before his face gets severely mangaled into a bloody pulp. We also get to see his co-star Kristin Scott Thomas as Julian's mother, and the promise of a samurai sword fight in this thriller that serves as a thematic follow-up to director Nicolas Winding Refn's last film Drive. Only God Forgives is tentatively scheduled for a May 23rd release, and follows a drug smuggler who runs a Thai boxing club out of Bangkok as a front for the family business. When his brother is killed, Julian is forced by his mother to seek revenge, and soon draws the attention of the British police. This leads Julian to a face-off with The Angel of Death, a retired police officer who knows everything and everyone. Will Julian live to see his brother avenged? Ryan Gosling gets off to a promising start in these latest photos, but previously released set photos hint that he is in for a world of pain and suffering.

The film projects coming out of the Cannes Film Festival just seem to be piling up lately and this latest one will take you fishing in a bizarre locale. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas have all signed on to star in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
Lasse Hallström is directing the film from the script by Simon Beaufoy, which was adapted from the Paul Torday novel.
