Bloody-Disgusting reports today that a new big-budget Thai/Chinese co-production, The Lake will be released in the U.S. in early 2023. Check out the trailer up here!
BD tells us that the Hollywood-based Epic Pictures Group has acquired North American distribution rights, and sales rights ex-Asia, and has also taken an investment position in Thailand’s giant monster movie The Lake. Plans are to release the film on March 10 in limited theatrical, followed by March 14 on VODs.
The film’s practical monster was designed by artist Jordu Schell (Cloverfield, The Thing, Starship Troopers, The Mist, Feast, Avatar, Men in Black, Planet of the Apes, The Cabin in the Woods, Predators), brought to life using practical life-sized animatronics alongside CGI.
In The Lake
“A gigantic and bloodthirsty monster emerges from a lake after its egg is stolen and unleashes its fury on a town’s inhabitants, leaving a trail of destruction and death in its wake. The town of Bueng Kan, now cut off from the outside world, must mobilize its officials and citizens, as well as a group of scientists that are in town conducting research, to catch this predator before it’s too late.”
Director Lee Thongkham said in a statement, “This movie will bring back the nostalgia of when we first loved the original monster movies with animatronics and puppets. But the most exciting thing about the movie is watching this monster movie with 40% CGI. You will feel the real and spectacular scope and scale from Thai cinema.”
Epic Pictures Group CEO Patrick Ewald adds, “Inspired by the effects of real-world environmental disasters, The Lake is a gripping movie that utilizes both practical and visual effects in truly impressive fashion. Following in the massive footsteps of Godzilla from Japan and The Host from Korea, The Lake is Thailand’s bold answer to the creature feature.”
