ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at the poster for Bangkok Dangerous, the new action-thriller from directors Danny and Oxide Pang starring Nicolas Cage. Based on the Pang Brothers’ wildly popular Hong Kong action film of the same name, the movie was written by Jason Richman.
In the Lionsgate release, opening August 22, the life of an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings. Joe (Cage), a remorseless hitman, is in Bangkok to execute four enemies of a ruthless crime boss named Surat. He hires Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm), a street punk and pickpocket, to run errands for him with the intention of covering his tracks by killing him at the end of the assignment. Strangely, Joe, the ultimate lone wolf, instead finds himself mentoring the young man while simultaneously being drawn into a tentative romance with a local shop girl. As he falls further under the sway of Bangkok’s intoxicating beauty, Joe begins to question his isolated existence and let down his guard… just as Surat decides it’s time to clean house.
