Here's a few Thai releases that might tickle ya taste buds!
Prachya Pinkaew is back directing full-on Asian action flicks after his brief interlude with the more internationally flavoured, and a little disappointing, Elephant White. This one stars Pinkaew regulars, JeeJa Yanin (Chocolate, Raging Phoenix) and Petchtai Wongkamlao (Ong Bak,The Bodyguard) in a story about a family of Tae Kwon Do masters who move to Thailand from South Korea to open a Gym. Expect the usual copious amounts of martial arts madness from this one.
Out Nov' 3rd in Thailand.
AFTER III 2090
Byron Gibson, an up 'n' coming stunt performer (who appears in The Hangover Part II, the forthcoming Scorpion King: Battle for Redemption and the, as yet, unreleased Jean Claude Van Damme flick The Eagle Path), features in this futuristic action movie. It looks like it could go both ways, either down a half decent 'Ong Bak goes Sci Fi' road, or down a 'Bad Uwe Boll video game adaption' route. Time will tell!
Touted for a late 2011 release date.
BANGKOK KUNG FU
Not sure what to make of this one - seems a little too High School Musical in places for my liking. Having said that, it might be like a Thai version of Kung Fu Hustle, which is A-Okay with me.
Out Sep' 1st in Thailand, so it should find it's way to international markets some time soon.
Also of note are 2 future Thai film releases from director Raimund Huber (Bangkok Adrenaline) - Kill 'Em All and Dragonwolf. Unfortunately no trailers have hit yet so you'll have to wait in feverish anticipation, or alternatively you can go to the Epic Pictures website below, or click on the film titles for more info.
