Trailer Watch: Ong Bak 2 promo reel


A “promo reel”/trailer for Ong Bak 2 has hit the net thanks to Twitch. It looks like a sequel in name only — no real connection to the original other than its phenomenal star, Tony Jaa, who also makes his directorial debut with this.

The story looks about as non-existent as in both Ong Bak and The Protector — it’s about “a young man saved from execution by a group of global martial artists as a boy” who attempts to combine all of their martial arts styles into “one master martial art.” Or something. But plot isn’t really the point with his movies, now, is it?

Ong Bak 2 comes out in Thailand this year and will hopefully make it here sometime next year.

    They’re the national symbol of Thailand; I imagine they were well-treated. :)
