Seeing this trend, local filmmakers have been working hard to produce the qualified movies to fit national and international markets. If asking you what kind of Cambodian movies would you expect to watch: documentary, drama, comedy, adventure, romance, history, action, crime, horror, thriller etc.? For me, I like watching action films (Hollywood-made, Chinese-made, and Thai-made …), and this chance I wish to watch Cambodia-made ones as well.
Luckily, I had watched one film, Hanuman, produced by Kongchak Pictures – it is the Cambodia’s first action movie. So, what will be the next one to watch in the upcoming year, 2017?

- The Last Reel
Kongchak Pictures in association with Puprum Entertainment, a new startup company founded by two biggest film distributors: Sabay Digital Corporation and Westec Media Limited, have worked together for the action comedy adventure, JAILBREAK, which may do well for Cambodia comparing to regional neighbors.
What started as a simple escort mission will soon turn to chaos as the prisoners of Koh Kla take over the prison grounds. Five special task force officers trapped in the building will have to fight their way out for survival, as they wait for backup to come.The film will be casting by Dara Our, star of Khmer first action movie Hanuman as well as Father’s Treasure, Before the Fall and The Forest Whispers. His co-lead is the Hollywood-level Jean Paul Ly, his action credits include stunt and fight work on Lucy, Now You See Me 2, Grimsby, 24, Streetfighter and more, recently Cuckoo. The other casts include Tharoth Sam, the first female Bokator Fighter to make it into the MMA League and winner of the One FC MMA Tournament in 2014, and Savin Phillip, who is also cast in Hanuman. It will be directed by Jimmy Henderson with estimated release in 2017.
