Best News of the Week

plus other great things the internet gave us

 Obviously Best News of the Week goes to the return of Mad Men; but I've been talking about that for weeks, so let's give someone else a chance.  This week the title goes to Ryan Gosling and Nicolas Winding Refn for teaming up again- this time for Only God Forgives. The duo united for Drive and are back with what seems to be a similarly chilling movie about a stoic Gosling character who is unphased by the violence he finds himself constantly surrounded by.  The pair make a great couple as far as beautiful beautiful action films go, so here's hoping that sneaky son of bitch who cut the Drive trailer works on this film as well to trick the masses into getting a healthy does of art-house film and some culture. Check out more on AV Club or watch the trailer below:
