If you're a die hard action fan like myself, then it's safe to say that if you've seen Gareth Evan's Indonesian action-fest The Raid, and you were blown away by it's nonstop brutality. The Raid is without a doubt one of the best action films to come out in many, many years.
Good news! Writer/Director Gareth Evan's follow-up is almost here and here's a taste of what to expect in this insane Indonesian trailer. I don't know man, it looks like Evan's has topped himself with this one, if that's even possible. I'm super stoked, are you? This looks seriously insane and badass on every level.
Here's the official word via Todd Brown over at TwitchFilm:
Indonesian action star Iko Uwais will be back on the big screen in 2014 with the release of Gareth Evans' The Raid 2: Berandal and Twitch is proud to premiere the first Indonesian teaser trailer for the film. While the first film may have been confined to a single building this new offering continues that story and broadens things out considerably, both in terms of locations and the scale and scope of the characters and action. And while this may be a teaser it shows off a lot of the key faces and snippets of a handful of major set pieces to give a sense of what is coming.
Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Alex Abad, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, Julie Estelle, Cecep Arif Rahman, Cok Simbara, Yayan Ruhian, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, and Kitamura Kazuki star. Check the trailer below. And be warned: Evans says it's to be played loud through headphones or big ass speakers only. Listen through a phone or laptop and Hammer Girl is coming to get you.
I really liked the action in The Raid, but I hope the sequel has more to the story that just video game level stages. And lose the CGI blood too. That stuff looks fake. The sequel trailer looks excellent though.ReplyDelete
