The Protector 2 Trailer Starring Tony Jaa


It’s been a few years since we last heard from Tony Jaa, who had retreated from the world after the stressful production of Ong-Bak 3 and decided to become a Buddhist monk. It would seem that his retirement from the movie industry was fairly short-lived, however, and he is now ready to get back in the game by reteaming with Ong-Bak director Prachya Pinkaew and choreographer Panna Rittikrai for the sequel to their 2005 film Tom yum goong aka The Protector. This time around Tony Jaa also shares the screen with martial arts star JeeJa Yanin (Chocolate) and RZA, but can they still generate the same excitement now that we’ve all seen The Raid? The Protector 2 hits VOD on March 27th and select theatres on May 2nd; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
