New trailer for The Raid 2

31 December 2013

Having a bit of an Indo-knees-up.

Here’s a brand new trailer for Indonesian action film The Raid 2: Berandal.

This is the sequel to last year’s cult hit, which won international praise for its visceral, muscular action sequences and slick approach.

It’s again being directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans, and will feature returning star Iko Uwais as the martial-arts-trained cop who attempts to bring down a deadly Jakarta crime syndicate.

Here’s the official synopsis:

"Written and directed by Gareth Evans, THE RAID 2 picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission–and the organized crime syndicate–down around him.Matt Flannery (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Dimas Imam Subhono served as cinematographers with Joseph Trapanese (THE BOURNE LEGACY), Aria Prayogi (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) and Fajar Yuskemal (THE RAID: REDEMPTION) scoring the picture."

The Raid 2: Berandal is set to be released on 28th March, 2014.
