Trailer for Pen-ek's Headshot



As Pen-ek Ratanaruang prepares to fly to Canada this week for the Toronto International Film Festival and the world premiere of his new movie Headshot, there's now a trailer (embedded above), and it looks fantastic.

Based on the novel Fon Tok Kuen Fah (ฝนตกขึ้นฟ้า) by S.E.A. Write Award-winning writer and Silpathorn Award laureate Win Lyovarin, it's the dark film-noir tale of an ex-cop-turned-hitman who is shot and then wakes up from a coma and everything is upside down.

The thriller stars "Peter" Noppachai Jayanama (Nymph, Naresuan). Cris Horwang (Bangkok Traffic (Love) Story, Saturday Killer) also stars along with rapper Apisit "Joey Boy" Opasaimlikit and newcomer model-actress "Dream" Chanokporn Sayoung.

It's set for release in Thailand on November 3.

    This looks great. It's about time Thailand did a decent noir and this could be it!
    Keep up the good work, I love your site.

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
