Posted Tue May 24, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The adrenaline-fueled Thai actioner will kick ass on Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia has listed Panna Rittkrai's 'BKO: Bangkok Knockout' for Blu-ray on August 30.

Rittkrai is a legend in Thai action cinema. The director of 'Born to Fight' and fight coordinator for such classics as 'Ong Bak' and 'Chocolate', he was the star of many action films in the 70s and 80s, and is famously a mentor to some of the top action superstars working today, including Tony Jaa ('Ong Bak'), Dan Chupong ('Dynamite Warrior') and Jija Yanin ('Chocolate'). BKO features a range of martial art disciplines. A group of "fight club" pals whose styles vary from Muay Thai and Capoeira to Kung Fu and Tai Chi must fight for their lives when one of their friends is kidnapped.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
