Complete with a cool animated credits introduction to all of the stars who kick some serious ass, we have a new 10-minute featurette for The Raid 2: Berandal. Director Gareth Evans kicks things off by explaining where our story begins, which is actually just a couple hours after The Raid ended. This time a war between an Indonesian and Japanese crime family is brewing while our hero, Iko Uwais as Rama, is undercover in the middle of it all. This is a pretty informative featurette with a great look behind the scenes. And don't be confused by the appearance of Yayan Ruhian, because he's playing a different character than he did in the first film, not to mention being the fight coordinator for all this impressive action. Watch now!
Here's the 10-minute featurette for Gareth Evans' The Raid 2: Berandal from the film's YouTube:
And here's the brand new US poster for the sequel The Raid 2, with a pretty bold quote at the top:
