We've got the full international trailer for The Raid 2: Berandal to show you today! Holy shit this thing looks like it's going to be even more badass than the first movie! Director Gareth Evans sure knows how to make an insane action film! There's just no way he would be able to pull off this kind of stunt work in the U.S. so it will be interesting to see what he does if he ever starts making American action movies. In the meantime, enjoy the awesomeness of the new trailer. It starts out a little slowly, setting the story up, but then goes right into the action of the film.
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 will premiere at Sundance and hit theaters on March 28th, 2014
