The sad thing is that many of you won’t get to see Chocolate when it gets released next Friday. Sure, you’ll get to catch up with the film once it hits DVD a few days later, but this is the type of bone-crunching martial arts film that should be enjoyed with an audience. And since this film is directed by Prachya Pinkaew, who discovered the great Tony Jaa, you know that the action is going to be intense.
Jeeja Yanin stars as an austic young woman who ihas managed to develop incredible martial arts skills through watching the students at the Muay Thai martial arts school next door and by watching old martial arts films on television. When her mother develops cancer, she and her friend Moom set out to get money for her treatments.
We’ll have a review of the film next week for you in our run up coverage to this year’s New York Comic Con, but in the meantime, enjoy this new trailer.
