New images of Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives

Only God Forgives has released a new batch of black and white images of a battered and bruised Ryan Gosling looking moody for the camera.

Gosling can be seen here sporting a look perhaps best described as “hooligan chic”, offsetting his sharp suit with a pair of black eyes and what looks to be a broken nose.

The film sees Gosling play an exiled cop-killer living in Thailand, where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for a drug-running operation. However, his new life soon comes under threat when is brother is killed for murdering a prostitute.

It isn’t long before his mum (Kristin Scott Thomas) has touched down at Bangkok International, demanding her remaining son set out for revenge. With Drive ’s Nicolas Winding Refn at the helm once more, it looks like Gosling is set to get violent all over again...

Only God Forgives is expected to arrive in the first half of 2013, with a specific release date still to be confirmed. You can check out Gosling in all his crumpled manliness, below...
