Official US Poster for Thai Martial Arts Movie Chocolate
Taste the fury! In the world of badass foreign martial arts movies, Chocolate is one of this year's best unseen gems. Although I personally missed it at two film fests, it has been receiving fairly positive reviews (read one from Twitch and one from Film School Rejects). Thanks to Twitch, we've got the official US poster for Chocolate, which is Ong Bak director Prachya Pinkaew's latest film. While the art on this poster isn't anything new, the tagline is, and it's one of the very reasons I had to share this. So do yourself a favor and check it out (and watch the trailer if you haven't) because this is finally hitting theaters in February.
Those of you that have already seen Chocolate be sure to let us know what you thought of it!
Chocolate is directed by Thai filmmaker Prachya Pinkaew, of Tony Jaa's Ong Bak and The Protector previously. The screenplay was written by Chukiat Sakveerakul (13 Beloved, Body #19) and Nepalee Sakweerakul. The film stars martial arts newcomer Nicharee "Jeeja" Vismistananda. Chocolate first opened in theaters in Thailand this February and played at the Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest this year as well. Magnet Releasing will debut Chocolate in limited theaters starting on February 6th, 2009.
