A new trailer has been released for SKIN TRADE, along with an international poster for the film.

SKIN TRADE is the first English language film for Thai action star Tony Jaa (ONG BAK), and it finds him teaming up with Swedish action hero Dolph Lundgren (ROCKY 4, THE EXPENDABLES). The rest of the cast is exciting as well, and includes Michael Jai White (FALCON RISING), Peter Weller (ROBOCOP), Ron Pearlman (PACIFIC RIM), Celina Jade (THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS), Cary-Hiroyuli Tagawa (47 RONIN), and Conan Stevens (TRUE LEGEND). The project is being helmed by Ekachai Uekrongtham, the director behind BEAUTIFUL BOXER, an acclaimed biopic about real-life transgender Muay Thai fighter Nom Tung.

The film is the first of two collaborations between Jaa and Lundgren after the two actors made a deal: Jaa would appear in this US production, and Lundgren would appear in a Thai produced film (The currently in production A MAN WILL RISE).

SKIN TRADE sees Lundgren playing a NYC cop out for revenge against a drug kingpin that murdered his family. Jaa plays the Thai detective aiding him in his quest which also uncovers a human trafficking network.

SKIN TRADE will get a limited theatrical release in the US courtesy of Magnolia pictures on May 8th, but the film will be available earlier via Video On Demand as of April 23rd.

Have a look at the film’s official US trailer below.
