The legend of Ong Bak 3 begins after Tien (Tony Jaa) has lost his fighting skills and his beloved stepfather at the Garuda’s Wing cliff from the raid led by Jom Rachan (Saranyu Wonggrajang). Tien is brought back to life with the help from Pim (Primrata Dechudom) as well as Mhen (Petchai Wongkamlao) and the Kana Khone villagers. Deep into the meditation taught by Phra Bua (Nirutti Sirijanya), Tien finally is able to achieve ‘Nathayut’. His talents are put to the test again when his rivals including the Golden-Armored King’s Guard (Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kijusuwan), the mysterious killers in black, and Bhuti Sangkha (Dan Chupong) return for the final massive showdown.
After her role as the autistic wunderkind in Prachya Pinkaew’s Chocolate, Thailand’s female Muay Thai talent Jeeja (Jija) Yanin is ready to kick some more (male) ass in Raging Phoenix (Du Suay Doo). According to several reports Jeeja will not only have to fight but will show us her more romantic side as well.
The first teaser trailer for the Rashane Limtrakul directed action film was released today. Check out DekNang for dozens of photos and behind-the-scene shots. Raging Phoenix will open on August 12th in Thailand, but after the international success of Chocolate I guess it shouldn’t take long until it arrives at our shores as well.
Because my first article on Bangkok Adrenaline sparked some pretty intense discussions in the comments section that even allured director Raimund ‘Ray’ Huber himself, I thought you might be interested in the new trailer that was screened during the Cannes Film Market to international distributors.
P.S. Was the shotgun sfx in the beginning taken from Doom or Duke Nukem 3D?
