There is some serious buzz around a movie soon to be released after the first trailer for A Prayer Before Dawn appeared online last night.

The movie is based on the true story of a trouble young British boxer and his time spent in several Thai prisons.

The film was debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year where it was met with widespread praise from critics.

However the trailer does throw in some typical Thailand clichés of Muay Thai fighters, bar girls and Thai prisons.

The movie is based on the 2014 bestselling book of the same name and depicts Billy Moore’s time in Chiang Mai Central Prison before he is later moved for a stint in the “Bangkok Hilton” (Klong Prem Central Prison.)

Former television star Joe Cole known for his role in Skins stars in the movie.

The synopsis of the book says that Billy ran to Thailand to escape heroin and alcohol addiction before becoming a Muay Thai fighter in an effort to stay clean but ultimately relapsed and became addicted to YaBa.

There has been no official release date for the movie announced as yet but expect an announcement very soon now the trailer has dropped online, for those that love all things Thailand this will be a must watch.
