Trailers, posters for Boonchu 9
Boonchu 9 is the latest film in the teen-comedy series from the 1990s, directed by Bhandit Rittakol from Five Star Production. The trailer from YouTube is embedded above.
I love the posters for Boonchu 9. I think they've captured the look of the posters from the original series.
The original series was about the trials and tribulations of Boonchu (Santisuk Promsiri) and his long-time sweetheart, Mo (Jintara Sukapat). The new film focuses on the story of on Boonchu's son, Boonchoke, played by fresh-faced young actor, Thanachart Tulyachat, following his adventures as he moves from upcountry to attend university in Bangkok. Santisuk and Jintara reprise their roles, now playing worried parents. Apinya Sakuljaroensuk, currently starring in Friendship, can be seen doing a jig while wearing the white mini-skirt uniform of the Chester's fast-food chain -- a bit of product placement for one of the film's sponsors. The humor looks mostly clean and homespun, which is refreshing. But will it attract audiences?
With good reception of the Five Star Remastered release of the Boonchu series on DVD earlier this year, Five Star Production certainly hopes to have a hit on their hands.
Boonchu 9 opens in Thai cinemas on August 28.
