The new teaser trailer for Ong Bak 3 has made its way from the Blu-ray or DVD release of Ong Bak 2 onto YouTube and will smack you and every thug in it right upside the head.
Tony Jaa returns to direct Ong Bak 3 and once again looks to bring his passion for Thailand’s national animal elephants into the franchise. You expect insane fighting and stunts from an Ong Bak film and this short teaser delivers (the elephant tusk move is sweet!)
The plot is a little tricky to understand so here is the official synopsis released last year.
The legend of Ong Bak 3 begins after Tien (Tony Jaa) has lost his fighting skills and his beloved stepfather at the Garuda’s Wing cliff from the raid led by Jom Rachan (Saranyu Wonggrajang). Tien is brought back to life with the help from Pim (Primrata Dechudom) as well as Mhen (Petchai Wongkamlao) and the Kana Khone villagers. Deep into the meditation taught by Phra Bua (Nirutti Sirijanya), 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 (Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kijusuwan), the mysterious killers in black, and Bhuti Sangkha (Dan Chupong) return for the final massive showdown.
Ong Bak 3 is scheduled to arrive in theaters later this year.
