Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior, the U.S. version of Tony Jaa's original 2003 Muay Thai-stunt extravaganza, is coming to Blu-ray on February 2.
Twentieth Century Fox is distributing Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior. It appears this is the "international" version that Fox picked up from Luc Besson's Europa Corp., which had trimmed the Thai version slightly and put a French hip-hop score on it.
Extras on the Blu-ray include:
- Tony Jaa and stuntman performance at French screening
- The 8 Movements of Muay Thai
- French rap music video with Tony Jaa
- Making of the music video
- B-roll behind-the-scenes footage of the taxi stunts, legs-ablaze fight and arena fight
The Blu-ray of Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior will be released on the same day as the U.S. DVD and Blu-ray of the 2008 prequel, Ong-Bak 2: The Beginning, distributed by Magnolia. It's be a great day for Tony Jaa fans. And just three days before the Tony Jaa's 34th birthday on February 5, it's an awesome way to celebrate.
