an official teaser for Tony Jaa's Tom-Yum-Goong 2 (ต้มยำกุ้ง 2) has landed, offering about a minute of furious fighting, jaw-dropping stunts, an epic road chase involving thousands of motorbikes and an exploding tanker truck to top it all off.
That's all after about a half a minute of Tony Jaa recapping the glories of the past 10 years, including his major studio debut Ong-Bak, plus Tom-Yum-Goong (a.k.a. The Protector) and Ong-Bak 2 and 3.
Blink and you'll miss an appearance by Jeeja Yanin, who apparently got her licks in before getting pregnant. Rhatha "Yaya Ying" Pho-ngam, hot off her debut performance in In Only God Forgives, joins the cast as a fighter with a mean hair flip, a red dress and "twenty" written across her chest. There's also Marrese Crump, RZA as the villain and Tony Jaa's Ong-Bak sidekick Petthai "Mum Jokmok" Wongkumlao.
But it's Tony Jaa's show, with Prachya Pinkaew and Panna Rittikrai sharing credit as directors. And it'll be in 3D.
The release in Thailand is set for October 23.
