New U.S. Trailer for Ong Bak 3 aka Tony Jaa’s The Passion of the Thai

Tony Jaa’s “Ong Bak 3” is kinda like Mel Gibson’s “Passion of the Christ”, except with more Thai food and less crazy. Magnet Releasing has the film scheduled for limited release on January 14, 2011, though at this point if you haven’t seen it yet on DVD, you’re just not trying very hard. In any case, check out the latest U.S. trailer for the film below.

Martial arts legend Tony Jaa writes, directs, produces and stars in ONG BAK 3, the third and final installment in one of the most beloved action series of all time. Picking up at the cliffhanger ending where Ong Bak 2 leaves off, Jaa ramps up the epic supernatural elements of the previous film, while still maintaining the trademark bone-crunching action that the series is known for. This time he must face his ultimate enemy: a fierce supernatural warrior named “Demon Crow,” played by fellow martial arts sensation Dan Chupong (Dynamite Warrior). Eagerly anticipated by martial arts aficionados for some time, the matchup of Jaa and Chupong is explosive.

Starring Tony Jaa, Saranyu Wonggrajang, Petchai Wongkamlao,Nirutti Sirijanya, Dan Chupong, Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kijusuwan, and directed by Tony Jaa and Panna Rittikrai.
