Finally we get the official trailer and a release date for Tom Yum Goong 2 (AKA, The Protector 2). The first film topped the film charts in Thailand for two weeks straight, and was the highest grossing Thai film in the US ever.
The film is released amidst the controversy that Tony Jaa is leaving Thai movies for Hollywood – Fast & Furious 7 apparently his first film. His boss Somsak “Sia Jiang” Techaratanaprasert, president of Sahamongkol Film International (Mongkol Film), is not happy that Tony has not approached him about his move, and as such may try to block it or sue Jaa.
Anyway, this second part is released on 23rd October in Thailand, It’s in 3D, so make sure you see it in the cinema.
I am chuffed to have been a part of this film. It’s been almost a year since I started filming my parts, and I’m happy to have made the official trailer cut.
Thank you to Tony Jaa, Mum Jokmuk, Tony Ryu and Tom Stanton for your support.
