After a two year wait, we will soon be able to watch the sequal to ‘Ong-Bak’. Next weekend, the highly anticipated action movie ‘Tom Yum Goong’ will hit movie theatres in Thailand. Rival movie distributors have been asked to clear their slates for that weekend so that ‘Tom Yum Goong” can have a clean run. At 300 million baht, this is the second most expensive Thai movie ever to be made. (The most expensive one was of course ‘Suriyothai’.) It is rumoured that they will raise the price of the movie ticket just to help cover costs. I doubt this would be needed as it will surely do well in the overseas market. The previous movie took in US$15 million worldwide.
