New Only God Forgives Trailers: Ryan Gosling, the Avenger

The American red-band trailer for Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives was all ambiguous violence scored by a delicate karaoke performance. The recently released European trailer actually explains what the hell is going on. Kristin Scott Thomas plays the mother and boss of a drug empire. When one of her sons is murdered by a former police officer known as the Angel of Vengeance (Vithaya Pansringarm), she implores her other son Julian (Gosling) to avenge him. Do you think Gosling's enemies confuse, when he asks, "You wanna fight?" with his classic Crazy, Stupid, Love. "You wanna get out of here?" inflection?
