Watch: Cool Stop-Motion Trailer for 'The Raid' with Claymation Cats
If by chance you happened to miss The Raid: Redemption, be on the lookout for it playing at any theater near you as it likely won't last longer than one week in theaters that aren't in major cities. Hopefully it will hit the shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD sooner than later so everyone can witness what a real action movie with very little digital effects and some amazing choreography can be like (apparently many big blockbusters have forgotten how to do that). But until then, you might want to have a little fun with this stop-motion animated re-creation of the trailer for the film with claymation cats, because why not? It's pretty cool.
Here's the original trailer that inspired the claymation version to compare and contrast via Yahoo:
In the heart of Jakarta lies a rundown apartment infested with druggies and drifters, ruled by a ruthless drug lord. The apartment block is considered untouchable by even the bravest of police—until one early morning when, cloaked under dawn's darkness, an elite SWAT team, led by Officer Rama (Iko Uwais), raids the peril-filled structure. As Rama's squad races between the maze of rooms and floors, encountering a barrage of gunfire, machetes, and ruthless hand-to-hand combat around every corner, the stakes get higher and higher. Written and directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Huw Evans, Sony Pictures Classics has released The Raid: Redemption in theaters on March 23rd. See our interview with the director right here!
