Knives, guns, fists, masks and more, all slick, stylized and looking pretty badass. It's "Only God Forgives" and the first bit of new footage looks like another unique piece of work from Nicolas Winding Refn.

Knives, guns, fists, masks and more, all slick, stylized and looking pretty badass. It's "Only God Forgives" and the first bit of new footage looks like another unique piece of work from Nicolas Winding Refn.

While a release date is still a bit up in the air, recent reports seem to peg it for a May 23rd bow which likely means a return to the Cannes Film Festival for both Refn and Ryan Gosling, after wowing the Croisette with "Drive" in 2011. To remind you, the story centers on Julian (Gosling), a man living in exile in Bangkok after killing a cop. He runs a Thai boxing club with his brother as a front for the family's drug smuggling operation, run by his Florida-based mom Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas). But when his brother gets murdered, Julian is put on a path that will find him squaring off against a retired cop named Chang aka The Angel of Vengeance.

So sit back, and take in 20 seconds from the movie and let us know your first impressions below.
