Check This Out: Badass Photos from Thai Film Bang Rajan 2
I don't know what this is, but it looks frickin' awesome! Twitch has found a handful of new photos from an upcoming Thai film called Bang Rajan 2 that's actually the sequel to a little-known film from 2000 called Bang Rajan. The original is a period epic about a group of outnumbered villagers standing up to a stronger military force. It was apparently pretty damn good, despite not getting too far outside of Thailand. However, nine years later and they're back with a sequel which, this time, is being produced by Phranakorn Film, one of Thailand's biggest production companies and distributors. With that said, you need to see these photos!
I can't see, to find a plot synopsis for Bang Rajan 2 anywhere, but that doesn't matter because it probably wouldn't make much sense anyway without seeing the original. That said, I'm sold based off of these photos alone, which look completely badass (visually and physically). Twitch says to "expect some sort of fusion of styles" as the teaser they've got has some action inspired by 300, yet these photos are "both very impressive and very naturalistic in their approach." If you're interested, you can pick up the first Bang Rajan on DVD on Amazon while waiting for this one to make its way across the Pacific. As always, stay tuned for updates!
