ONG BAK TRILOGY coming July 29th

Magnolia Home Entertainment
and Magnet Releasing

The ONG BAK TRILOGY will be available on Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday, July 29th. Both 3-disc box sets contain Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior, Ong Bak 2: The Beginning, and Ong Bal 3: The Final Battle. Each disc is loaded with great extra features.

This release is especially timely in that Panna Rittikrai, who worked in the Thai film industry for three-and-a-half decades as actor, stuntman, action choreographer and director. He gained international recognition as Tony Jaa's mentor. He was stunt coordinator for Ong Bak, and co-rwrote and co-directed Ong Bak 2 and Ong Bak 3 with Jaa. Rittikrai. Seeing him on the extras is heartwrenching given his untimely death at 53 a few days ago.

The original Ong Bak brought the Thai action film industry worldwide recognition and made a star of Tony Jaa.

Look for a review here at AsianCineFest on or just before the July 29th release date.
