'Only God Forgives' Trailer: Ryan Gosling Says Nothing, Does Unspeakable Things (VIDEO)

In the new "Only God Forgives" red band trailer, Ryan Gosling offers up a familiar formula: few words, eye contact with the camera and super violent behavior. If that reminds you of "Drive," you're not crazy; "Only God Forgives" is directed by "Drive" helmer Nicolas Winding Refn.

Refn has allegedly upped the ante on the violence here, so we can assume that Gosling's dragging of a man by said man's jaw is only the beginning of the horrors contained within the movie. Also at play is a sinister storyline including Gosling's character's mother, who totally knew he was trouble when he walked in he was born.

The film takes place in Bangkok. Watch the trailer above and let us know what you think in the comments. "Only God Forgives" also stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Tom Burke and has yet to line-up a U.S. release date. Gosling, who took some time out from saving cows, also appears in "The Place Beyond the Pines."
