Watch: Wall-Punching Teaser for Gareth Evans' 'The Raid 2: Berandal'
A promo banner for the anticipated sequel The Raid 2: Berandal arrived last month, and now we have the first teaser trailer for the film that was just picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for release in the United States. It's a quick teaser, focusing mostly on Rama (Iko Uwais), who is locked in some sort of prison, punching the wall with a chalk outline serving as his target. As his punches and energy become more furious, we get flashes of the action from the sequel along with some new characters. The Raid: Redemption was one of the coolest action movies I've seen in awhile, and the sequel looks to be no different. Watch now!
Here's the first teaser trailer for Gareth Evan's The Raid 2: Berendal originally 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. Starring 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, the film features our lead character Rama (Uwais) going undercover and infiltrating the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film for distribution to release sometime in 2014.
