The schedule for the festival was also announced. “Only God Forgives” is part of the official competition and will have it’s first screenings on May 22. The movie will also have an additional screening the next day. Still no word if Ryan will attend the festival, but he is filming his directorial debut so he might be too busy.
The official Cannes press kit for “Only God Forgives” was released, it features new still of the movie and an in-depth interview with director Nicolas Winding Refn. We added the scans featuring Ryan in our gallery. You can download the press kit at the official website of the festival.
(Indiewire) RADiUS-TWC already teased us earlier this month with their first trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s second go-round with Ryan Gosling, confirming that the duo’s follow-up to “Drive” would be just as hard-hitting and awesome as their first collaboration.
And Now? Consider us stoked. A mere few hours after Cannes confirmed that “Only God Forgives” would be playing in competition just as “Drive” did two years ago (culminating in a Best Director win for Refn), an international trailer surfaced online, showcasing more of the film’s plot and Kristin Scott Thomas’ blistering performance as Gosling’s vengeful mother.

The official line-up for the Cannes Film Festival 2013 is announced as we write this, but it was announced that “Only God Forgives” by Nicolas Winding Refn will be part of the competition at the prestige festival. The festival runs from May 15 until 26. Let’s hope Ryan is able to attend, since he is expected to start production on his directorial debut in May as well.
