A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN Takes You Ringside In The First Official Trailer
In what can otherwise be described as one hell of a harrowing moment of his life, author Billy Moore found inspiration in telling his story through the 2014 book, A Prayer Before Dawn. To date, the literature of Moore's life has since transitioned onto the big screen from Johnny Mad Dog helmer Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, and actor Joe Cole (Green Room, Peaky Blinders, Thank You For Your Service) leading the cast and with acquisitions made in the past year in various territories including the U.K. and the U.S., North American distributor A24 is now following through with an official teaser trailer as of Monday.
Based on the international best-seller, A Prayer Before Dawn is the true story of Billy Moore, a troubled young British boxer sent to one of Thailand's most notorious jails. Refusing to die inside prison, Billy becomes a student of the lethal art of Muay Thai boxing, and in the process, finds a brotherhood that will guide him on an incredible journey to redemption.If looking for a good and gritty fight drama is on your list of priorities going into next year, you're more than welcome to add this one to the list. The reviews hailing from Cannes are a mix with lots of positives following through but the trailer alone will speak the most, especislly to martial arts fans and fight bros with as much brutal imagery as the footage entails and with fight choreography by David Ismalone (Ong Bak).
