Ryan Gosling in new bloodstained image from Only God Forgives

A new image has been released online of Ryan Gosling, looking as though he's picked a fight with the Klitschko brothers. But don't worry girls, Ryan's not turned into a tabloid-baiting brawler - it's the latest still from meaty action-fest Only God Forgives .

The latest collaboration between the star and his Drive director Nicholas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives will be set in Bangkok, where Gosling's cop-killer is living as a fugitive and running a drug-peddling operation on the side.

However, his life is soon turned on its head when his brother kills a prostitute, unleashing a sequence of events that draws Gosling into a brutal game of vengeance with a retired cop known as The Angel Of Death.

As you can see from the new image, the film will be another odyssey of violence for Gosling and Winding Refn. It certainly looks as though his character in this one is a little less untouchable than The Driver…

Also starring Kristen Scott Thomas, Only God Forgives is expected to arrive later in the year, with a release date yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, you can take a look at Gosling in all his gory glory, below...
