Oh no, girl! Ryan Gosling’s all f-cked up!
No, actually, he’s not. I mean, he is, but it’s not real or anything. This is the movie that he’s been filming in Thailand, Only God Forgives. Sources are saying that Eva‘s down there with him off and on for the whole ordeal, and she’s babysitting his dog, too. Word on the street says that’s pretty serious:
… Filming for the new flick is currently ongoing in Bangkok, Thailand and a source close to the actor revealed that his girlfriend, Eva Mendes, is caring for his dog George.
He was going to have his friends watch George, but changed his mind at the last minute,” a source told Us. “That’s a huge deal to him. He wouldn’t leave that dog with just anyone.”
Sorry to dash your hopes so early in the day, guys. But it gets better! Apparently this movie might actually be alright, and not some complete craptrap like Drive was. Rotten Tomatoes has it posted today, and people are saying that it might be a film worth watching. Here’s what it’s all about:
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty. When JULIAN’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’. Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release… but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
Oh, no, sorrry. No it doesn’t. My bad!
