Yet another trailer for Ong Bak 3 has surfaced and while we can still only rely on the synopsis to give us full story details, but pieced together with yet another bone-snapping video representation things become a bit more clear. However, while the second film had nothing to do with the first and this one appears to be trying to carry things over from the second, it all seems a bit muddled. It’s obviously going far more supernatural, which was touched upon slightly in the second film, but how it all plays into the rather comical conclusion of the second one is a mystery to me. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to see it. Tony Jaa is just too much fun to miss.
The film hits Thai theaters on May 5, and when it will arrive domestically is still unknown.
Check out the trailer and synopsis directly below.
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.
