Two Installments Of The "ONG BAK" Experience Arrive On Blu-ray Disc & DVD ­ Feb 2

Experience all the bone-breaking Ong Bak action on February 2 when Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior debuts on Blu-ray Disc from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Ong Bak 2: The Beginning arrives as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD from Magnolia Home Entertainment.

Physical conflict elevated to an art form is showcased in stunning high-definition when the visceral battle, Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior, premieres on Blu-ray Disc from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. When the head of his village’s sacred Buddha statue is stolen, simple country boy Ting (Tony Jaa) is sent to Bangkok to retrieve it in the martial arts symphony of flying limbs. It’s non-stop action as Ting infiltrates Bangkok’s seedy underworld and takes on a series of lowlifes and criminals in his quest to obtain the sacred head.

Featuring elaborate and eye-popping martial arts enhanced in high-definition all performed without the aid of stunt doubles, wires or computer graphic enhancements, Ong-Bak packs a punch that sets the new gold standard for hand-to-hand combat in action cinema. The Blu-ray Disc is bursting with bonus features including a music video featuring Jaa, an instructional walk-through highlighting the movements of Muay Thai, behind the scenes stunt footage, a promotional spot featuring The RZA of The Wu-Tang Clan, and more. Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior Blu-ray Disc will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99.

Martial arts master Jaa returns with a vengeance in the highly anticipated prequel Ong Bak 2: The Beginning, arriving as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD from Magnolia Home Entertainment under the Magnet Releasing label as part of the Six Shooter Film Series. Jaa stars in and co-directs the epic tale of revenge set hundreds of years in the past that follows the journey of an orphaned boy, trained to be a killer and prophesized to be the conqueror of an empire. Versed in countless styles of weaponry and martial arts, he is a one-man-army hell bent on avenging the murder of his parents.

Taking Jaa’s skills to the next level, Ong Bak 2 showcases a wide range of martial arts styles as he flies through the air defying the laws of gravity and performing jaw-dropping stunts. Collector’s Edition special features include an alternate cut, three ‘making of’ featurettes, three behind-the-scenes features, HDNet: A Look At Ong Bak 2, interviews with cast members including Tony Jaa, and more. Ong Bak 2: The Beginning Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD will each be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98. A standard DVD version will also be available for $26.98.
