Though we'll have to wait a bit longer yet to witness the first materials building up to the US release of Gareth Huw Evans' The Raid 2
- and with the US theatrical release coming March 28th 'a bit longer' should literally just be a bit - a major volley in the PR campaign for the Indonesian release of the film has just been fired with the full Indonesian trailer arriving on the local Yahoo portal
Here's how Sundance describes the film in their notes for the upcoming world premiere:
Immediately following the events of the original, The Raid 2
tracks Officer Rama as he is pressured to join an anticorruption task
force to guarantee protection for his wife and child. 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.
Filmmaker Gareth Evans gloriously
reunites with star Iko Uwais for this epic martial arts sequel. No
longer confined to a single building, the fight spills across the
streets of Jakarta--from prison yards to subway cars. Evans packs his
film with enough jaw-dropping action and groan-inducing hits to rival a
Hollywood studio's entire summer slate.
What this brings is action, and lots of it. Take a look at the Indonesian trailer for The Raid 2
[In the interests of full disclosure, this is the part where I point out that I'm a credited producer on the film.
