Trailer for Hanuman the White Monkey Warrior



Hanuman: The White Monkey Warrior is a martial-arts fantasy from Phranakorn. Directed by Sakchai Sriboonnak, it stars Sornram Theppitak and Yardtip Rajpal. Comic actor Kotee Aramboy has a supporting role and looks to be exploring his dramatic chops.

The story involves the "blood battle of the supernatural animals", whose spirits are reborn in modern-day warriors. Sornram plays a guy who has the spirit of Hanuman, the monkey god. One of the bad guys is a westerner actor Damian Mavis, who has the tiger spirit. That explains his strange haircut. Mavis has acted in many other Thai action films, most recently in Somtum. Another cast member from Somtum, 7-foot-tall Conan Stevens, is also in the cast, though I did not see him in the trailer. He appears briefly, wearing a mask at around the 54-second mark. Stevens has more about working on this film on his blog.

The trailer reveals a lot of CGI and wirework, though I don't really get a sense of the fighting.

The music's cool, though. And there's a music video.

Hanuman: The White Monkey Warrior opens in Thai cinemas on August 12.

  1. Thanks for the mention :)

    Luckily I had only a couple of days shoot on this film as we were filming Bangkok Adrenaline at the same time, exactly the same days ie Hanuman day shoot followed by BA night shoot followed by Hanuman day shoot followed by BA night shoot - I was completely stuffed after this.
