MARIO MAURER: Pee Mak Red Carpet Premier in TriNoma
Mario Maurer is in the Philippines again!
I was invited to the Philippine red carpet premiere of “Pee Mak” at TriNoma Cinema 7 earlier today, August 3,2013 at 7 p.m.
Mario Maurer was deglamorized in this box office hit horror-comedy film Pee Mak which will be shown in Philippine cinemas starting on August 28, 2013.
We had a chance to preview the movie a few hours ago. And boy, was I surprised how funny the movie is. I really had a good laugh.
Pee Mak's fresh take on a familiar tale quickly rode high to Thailand’s box-office as it reached USD 33 million with 10 million tickets sold nationwide in Thailand.
During the beginning of the Rattanakosin Dynasty, many Thai men were drafted to serve in the war. Pee Mak was no exception and had to leave his pregnant wife to join the flight. While at war, he met, saved and formed a close bond with four fellow soldiers. Played by Thailand’s funny foursome namely, Nuttapong Chartpong, Pongsatorn Jongwilas, Kantapat Permpoonpatcharasuk and Attharut Khongrasri. Once the war was over, Mak invited his four best friends to visit his hometown called Phra Khanong. When they arrived at the town, Mak introduced them to his beautiful wife Nak and his newborn baby boy Dang. Pee Mak's four friends decided to stay in Phra Khanong for a while and moved into the old house opposite to Mak's house. Despite having met Nak and Dang, a village rumor was going around that Nak had died giving birth to her stillborn baby, Dang.
