Ryan Gosling, amid his retreat from acting, is giving fans a taste of his pre-sabattical work in this teaser for his upcoming film Only God Forgives.
The clip cuts between the filming of scenes for the movie and the behind-the-scenes talks between Gosling and the movie's writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn. In one office meeting, Refn tells Ryan: "The sexuality of violence is the more you engage in the build up, compared to the act itself... it's the build up to the slicings then it's back, then it's in again ... Violence is like sex, it's all about the build-up." Swoon!
The movie is about Julian [Ryan], a drug smuggler in Bangkok's criminal underworld, who faces more complications when his mother pushes him to find and kill the person responsible for his brother's death. Only God Forgives is slated to premiere at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival this month and will make its US debut at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June.
