First Trailer for A24’s Thailand-Set Boxing Thriller ‘A Prayer Before Dawn’

Once again responsible for distributing some of the year’s best films — A Ghost Story, Lady Bird, Good Time, The Florida Project — A24 is showing no signs of slowing down in 2018. They recently dated two mysterious horror films for March 16 and April 27 and now they’ve debuted the trailer for Jean-Stephane Sauvaire’s A Prayer Before Dawn, which premiered in the midnight section of Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Based on a true story, it follows a British boxer who gets thrown into prison in Thailand and works his way up in the system by participating in tournaments. A24 has now debuted the thrilling first trailer, which shows off the film’s authenticity, having been shot on location and with real-life inmates. Check out the trailer and poster below ahead of a release next year.
