‘The Cave’ due out mid year – First cave rescue film to reach cinemas

‘The Cave’ due out mid year – First cave rescue film to reach cinemas | The Thaiger

A Thai-born director, Tom Waller,  who reportedly took only a few weeks to shoot the first film about the dramatic Tham Luang cave rescue of the Mu Pa football team in Chiang Rai’s Mae Sai district, says his focus was on authenticity and the mission’s “unsung” heroes.

AFP reports that book publishers and Hollywood studios are still  jostling to make their versions of the saga that unfolded in the middle of last year.

Tom Waller says “The Cave”, which is aiming for Thai release for the July anniversary of the operation, will be a “genuine” retelling of the gripping mission to extract the 12 boys and their coach from the waterlogged Tham Luang cave.

Its cast features more than a dozen of the real-life rescue heroes as well as extras such as the cooks who provided food round-the-clock food as officials and the world’s media massed at the cave entrance.

The Mu Pa “Wild Boars” spent more than a fortnight trapped in the dark before divers rescued them in an mission of unprecedented complexity — diving the boys out through twisting passageways while they were heavily sedated.

Waller, a Thai citizen with an Irish father and whose work includes “The Last Executioner”, said he did not immediately think he would take on the project despite its real-life dramatic arc.

International Hip Hop sensation at Sugar Club Phuket

International Hip Hop sensation at Sugar Club Phuket | The Thaiger

Sugar Club Phuket is hyped to host the Thailand premier of US Hip Hop sensation Rae Sremmurd, live on Tuesday, January 22.

Ever since Rae Sremmurd exploded onto the scene with SremmLife bangers “No Flex Zone”, “Unlock the Swag” & “No Type”, Hip Hop parties just haven’t been the same. Brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi may be relative new-kids on the block, but they’ve already build massive success, notably since their Gucci Mane-featuring SremmLife 2 single “Black Beatles,” and the accompanying online Mannequin Challenge rocketed them onto the international circuit.

More recently, their viral fanbase was gifted a fist-full of freshness when the trio of LPs on SR3MM arrived last year. A stand-out album with guest features from the likes of The Weeknd, Travis Scott and Future was always expected. But the inclusion of a strong pair of solo albums from Swae (the smooth ride of ‘Swaecation’) and Jxmmi (the trappier ‘Jxmtro’ with a stunning rap from Zoë Kravitz) proved the duo’s star quality beyond question.

To quote Swae Lee: “We gonna be in one of the Hall of Fames; it doesn’t matter if it’s the hip-hop, the opera, or whatever, we’re going down in history for something. There’s gonna be statues of us. We gonna go hard while we’re here. We’re going to make classic, timeless music and make a mark on these motherfuckers.”

Witness the rise of a legend at Rae Sremmurd’s first show ever in Thailand, only at Sugar Club Phuket – live on Tuesday, January 22.
