Gareth Evans' The Raid seriously looks like one of the greatest and most badass action films ever made. I'm am beyond excited to to see the movie! Sony Pictures Classics recently picked up the distribution rights to it, and they plan to release it in North America in the Spring of 2012.
This is a new extended Indonesian trailer that packs in as much hardcore smashing bloody violence as it possibly can. It brings the pain, and is full of "high octane carnage." It's crazy how watching the trailer pumps me up with energy, it's like drinking a Red Bull.
Here's the synopsis:
Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building's lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission. Director Gareth Evans (Merantau) and rising martial- arts star Iko Uwais reunite in this adrenaline-fueled action film.
