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.

Holy crap. That looks insane.

I think I was the only one I know that wished The Raid was a bit more than just a series of fight scenes strung together. This trailer makes me think the sequel will be what I was wishing for...

Yes, yes. And please no fake-looking CG blood.

Shinoda isn't doing the score this time apparently, that's a shame. Still looks great.

Slick. Dig this fighting style. So badass.

Hoping this is just as good as the first. Was lucky enough to score the Blu-ray for under ten bucks pretty soon after it was released. Hollywood action movies could learn a thing or two from these people.

GREGET is Indonesian slang for 'getar' or 'gemetar', means pulse (literally thrill), Mad Dog said this before he started to fight with Jaka in the first one.. He used this word to mean something like fun, sensation or he will really enjoy it. Mad Dog said: "Sebenarnya kurang kalau begini. Ga ada GREGET-nya. Tinggal tarik pelatuk... ...macam saylander aja. Dan ini. ...Ini baru asyik. ...Ini baru ada GREGET-nya. ...Ini permainan yang gue suka." Means: "I've never really liked using these. It's not FUN (no sensation). Squeezing a trigger... ...it's like ordering takeout. But this. ...This is the thing. ...This is the PULSE. ...This is what I like." GREGET become popular once again in Indonesia because of Mad Dog.
