Baler Movie Unofficial Trailer

“Baler” movie unofficial trailer is now online. It’s tagged as unofficial but it was uploaded by the movie director Mark Meily himself. Watch it!

And watch it again! And again. The dumagats shooting arrows at the church clinched it for me. It’s like Lord of the Rings.

Click here for the Baler movie official trailer. I like this one better. It’s a lot less noisier. The trailer starts 60 seconds into the video.
