Indie Trailer Sunday: Teaser Trailer for Tony Jaa's Ong Bak 3
This has to be Thailand's most popular film franchise. I thought Ong Bak 2 was just barely hitting theaters and now apparently Ong Bak 3 is already done shooting, too? Who knew? Ain't It Cool News found the first teaser trailer for Ong Bak 3 (via YouTube) and it looks pretty cool. I haven't even seen the second one so I don't know where the heck the story is even going at this point, but it still looks cool. At some point I need to watch the first two back-to-back anyway. Believe it or not this is real footage from the third movie, as far as we know, but it's a badass little teaser worth checking out if you're a fan of this franchise. Enjoy!
Watch the teaser trailer for Tony Jaa's Ong Bak 3:
Here's a synopsis for those a bit confused: "The legend of Ong Bak 3 begins after Tien (Tony Jaa) has lost his fighting skills and his beloved step-father at the Garuda’s Wing cliff from the raid led by Jom Rachan. Tien is brought back to life with the help from Pim as well as Mhen and the Kana Khone villagers. Deep into the meditation taught by Phra Bua, 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, the mysterious killers in black, and Bhuti Sangkha return for the final massive showdown." This is also directed by Tony Jaa. Stay tuned for more info.
