ZitatOkay, time for a history lesson. Any martial arts fan worth their salt these days is well aware of Tony Jaa of Ong Bak fame. Many of those are even familiar with Panna Rittikrai, Ong Bak's fight choreographer and Tony's mentor. What most are not aware of, however, is that Ong Bak wasn't Tony's screen debut. Not by a long shot. And Panna? The man had a thriving screen career that spanned decades and scores of films, most produced by a tiny, low budget outfit working mostly in northern Thailand known as Pech Panna Productions. Pech Panna used a rotating stable of directors, one of whom was Thanapon Maliwan, then known as Chartchai Maliwan, son of the company's founder. Among Maliwan's titles is Mission Hunter 2, a fun little flick that featured both Rittikrai and Jaa in significant roles and which we have reviewed here on Twitch in the past. You'll find it in the archives. Okay, deep breath. A year or two back Maliwan announced a new project he was working on, a film titled Dead End which was to be the screen debut of fighter and stunt man Michael B, who was responsible for a lot of work in Ong Bak. He had a test reel done and investors lined up and had just started shooting when the financing fell apart and the film died an ignoble death. So Maliwan did what any smart man who believed in his star would do: he found new investors and wrote a new script. The end result is Brave. Michael B stars but otherwise these are completely different films. And this one's done. And the trailer smokes. Yup.
ZitatCloverfield refers to the field formerly known as Central Park. Clovers are usually prone to grow at places after bombing. Thus the term "Clover" and "field" referring to park.
