The Protector 2
With Marrese Crump in person
Dir. Prachya Pinkaew. 2013, 83 mins. DCP. With Tony Jaa, Jeeja Yanin, RZA, Marrese Crump, Petchtai Wongkamlao. Martial-arts legend Tony Jaa returns to the big screen, united with RZA, in this high-flying follow-up to The Protector, set in the picturesque Thai countryside. Mr. Kham lives a peaceful, rural life with his elephant, until a vicious gun smuggler from the city wreaks havoc. With death-defying stunts and emotional grace, The Protector 2 is a wildly entertaining and moving ride. There will be a post-screening discussion with actor Marrese Crump, moderated by Museum trustee and Fist and Sword co-curator, Warrington Hudlin.
Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
