With Queens of Langkasuka rescheduling to October 9, another Thai action fantasy is poised reign on August 12, the Queen's birthday holiday.
From Phranakorn Film comes Hanuman: The White Monkey Warrior (หนุมานคลุกฝุ่น or Hanuman Klook Phun), directed by Sakchai Sriboonnak.
Here's the official synopsis:
In the ancient time before Land of Siam was born, there was the time when armies of invaders came to colonize the land and were mercilessly massacring population. One priest secretly gathered drawings of many animals from all over the world. He bonded the drawings in to a book with great supernatural powers. Then he gave the book to two headman of one Thai tribe to use these drawings to tattoo on his people and fight the invaders. When the land is rid of vandals and peace returns, the sacred book must be divided into many segments and passed on to the most trusted disciples to guard and preserve it. All segments of the sacred book must never fall in to hands of those who seek absolute power.
The time passed and ages went by, the sacred book once again emerged into the hands of rivals. All stories confirm that they were invincible because they were protected by tattoos with supernatural powers. When the segments of the sacred book once again collide, the blood battle of the supernatural animals begins.
Yes. Time passes and ages go by. And the ancient warrior gods rise to fight again. While wearing a singlet, leather jeans and mascara. Sponsored by Honda.
