18 Jul Thai film, ‘Bad Genius’ OST gets a special audiophile vinyl release.
Bad Genius was released on 3 May 2017, placing first at the Thai box office for two weeks and earning over 100 million baht (US$3 million), becoming the highest-grossing Thai film of 2017. The film performed successfully overseas. It broke Thai film earning records in several Asian countries, including China, where it earned over $30 million, making it the most internationally successful Thai film ever.
Inspired by real-life news of students cheating on the SAT, the film transplants the heist film structure to a school-exams setting, and features themes of class inequality as well as teen social issues. The young main cast consist of relative newcomers Chanon Santinatornkul, Teeradon Supapunpinyo and Eisaya Hosuwan as Lynn’s classmates Bank, Pat and Grace, while Thaneth Warakulnukroh plays her father.
The film’s OST finally gets a special audiophile vinyl release recently. The design of this vinyl album extracts the detail of the film to create a unique alternate interpretation onto the print work. With additional insert materials, the packaging fully reflects movie’s overall concept. You can purchase the OST here.
