The first Raid film was the stuff of legends. I’ve never seen fighting scenes so viscreal on screen before, and to think that we’d be getting a sequel to such an amazing film; well I can’t even imagine what’s going to happen in that film. Director Gareth Evans hints that we’re in for an epic event in The Raid 2: Berandal. The other day he tweeted “Last I checked – the action alone clocked in around 1hr 5mins mark.”
The film is going to take place 2 hours after the first film, where star Iko Uwais ends up in a jail and has to fight his way out. One scene involves four people fighting in a car as it’s speeding along a one-way. Evans also revealed that any teaser or trailer will not give away any of the 17 action scenes in the film. This man is a bloody mad scientist of fisticuffs and I can’t wait! Below, is a teaser poster from the film!
No release date on the film, but Iko Uwais will return to lead the picture. He’s joined by Julie Estelle (Macabre), Alex Abbad (Merantau), Marsha Timothy (The Forbidden Door), Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman.
