Secret In Their Eyes and Green Room are just two examples of how Joe Cole’s presence can absolutely command a scene (I still haven’t checked out his work in Peaky Blinders). The fact based feature A Prayer Before Dawn features Cole front and center, and the trailer was just released today. Check it out below!!
A Prayer Before Dawn centers on the true story of Billy Moore (Joe Cole), a young English boxer who was incarcerated in two Thailand prisons that were rife with drugs and gang violence. When Moore is allowed to take part in Muay Thai boxing tournaments, he enters one match after the next to gain his freedom. The picture was actually shot in a real Thai prison with actual inmates, so if anything this movie should be dripping with authenticity.
Check out the trailer below and as the clip suggests, make sure you “fight your demons,” “fight your fear,” but most importantly, “fight your way out!” A Prayer Before Dawn had an initial release date this May but it’s now coming out sometime in 2018.
