Only God Forgives (RED BAND) and The Purge Trailers

If you enjoyed Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive as much as I did, then chances are you can't wait for his follow up revenge film Only God Forgives. Prior to its scheduled world premier at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Refn and company has released the film's first official red band trailer. Once again starring Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives follows a Bangkok police lieutenant and a gangster whose long awaited showdown culminates in an epic revenge-filled Thai boxing match. Check out the red band trailer for Only God Forgives below.

Another recently released trailer that caught my eye was for The Purge, starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. From the producers of Hawke's 2012 horror release, Sinister, The Purge offers a fresh idea in the horror/thriller genre. Set in the somewhat near future, immensely overcrowded prisons force the U.S. government to allow a 12 hour period one day a year (known as "the purge") in which all crime is legal. During this time, a family must protect itself against a home invasion. Check out the film's trailer below.
