The first action packed trailer for Skin Trade has punched and kicked its way on-line, and this looks like a lot of fun indeed.
Firstly the cast is great: Tony Jaa and Dolph Lundgren teaming up to take on Ron Perlman’s villain, and the action in the trailer looks impressive, so what could go wrong? This looks like a perfect Friday night beer movie, don’t you think?
Skin Trade is directed by Ekachi Uekrongtham. No UK dates have been confirmed yet, but the film hits VOD in the US on 23td April, and limited cinemas from 8th May.
New Jersey detective, Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren) heads to Bangkok where he teams up with Thai detective, Tony Vitayakui (Tony Jaa) to hunt down Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman) and destroy his human trafficking network. Nick had mistakenly killed Dragovic’s son in a sting operation on the New Jersey docks, and Dragovic responded by attempting to kill Nick and his family. Nick miraculously survived the brutal attack, but his wife and daughter were killed. With nothing but vengeance to live for, Nick and Tony traverse their way through the Bangkok underworld in search of the elusive Dragovic. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Eddie Reed (Michael Jai White) is sent in to bring Nick home. But as the crossfire ensues, Nick has to determine who his true allies are.
