First Promo Banner for Gareth Evans' 'The Raid 2: Berandal' Debuts
It's Not Over Yet. Don't fuck with any of these guys. Time to start getting excited about the upcoming sequel to The Raid, which was filmed earlier this year in Indonesia and should be out sometime in 2014. Titled The Raid 2: Berandal, the story picks up two hours after the first movie ended, and is once again written & directed by Gareth Evans. With the film currently in post-production and likely heading to film festivals next year, Twitch has kicked off early promotion in the form of a wide sales banner featuring the entire cast. All of them look cool, but I want to know who the guys are on the far left and far right. They both look nuts.
Here is the first promo banner for Gareth Evans' The Raid 2. Click below to see this full-size from Twitch:
The Raid 2: Berandal, the sequel to The Raid, is written and directed by Welsh born filmmaker Gareth Evans who also directed the first film. The plot is still unknown, however, the story begins two hours after the first one ends. Iko Uwais reprises his role as Rama. After originally evolving from another script, The Raid was conceived and sold as a trilogy. Evans explained to Collider last year how it evolved into a trilogy: "'Well if I make this a continuation of the story from The Raid, it'll work much better, and it'll kind of add more ideas and add more different elements to it,' so it’s actually gonna be the sequel to The Raid… That'll be part two. Part three [will be] further down the line. A lot further down the line." With this artwork out, we expect/hope to see some footage soon, and a teaser is on the way. Stay tuned for updates on The Raid 2.
