New Trailer For The Raid 2: Berandal
Gareth Evans unveils all-new footage

31 December 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Gareth Evans' Twitter

A protracted technical kerfuffle overnight led to Raid director Gareth Evans submitting to an impromptu Q&A on Twitter. Eventually, it also resulted in this brand new Indonesian trailer for The Raid 2: Berandal. It seems as if, surely, it must be telling us too much, but Evans promises that this holds "only spoilers for the first act set-up".

The Raid 2: Berandal picks up the story two hours after The Raid (Evans says "The [potential] Raid 3 would take place two hours before The Raid 2 ends"...), and sweeps Rama (Iko Uwais) into a much broader world of corruption and violence as he infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate. As you'll just have seen, it looks even more gloriously violent than its predecessor, if that's possible. But it's odd how balletic it all looks when devoid of its crunchy sound effects. Can you have serene arm-breaking? We feel like we just saw one.

Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Yayan Ruhian, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki are all part of the cast for this one. Evans has previously promised 17 action sequences in the film, and said last night that the climactic fight took one and a half months to design.

For much more, check out Empire's breakdown of the first teaser trailer and our October podcast with Evans (see below). The Raid 2: Berandal plays at Sundance in January, but there's still no UK release date so far.

Rehearsed fight scenes
Some of the scenes there looked like they were rehearsed, which they obviously are but shouldn't they look like they're not? More
