Regular readers will know of our deep, abiding affection for Gareth Evans’ crazy action hit The Raid. And with Evans now busy editing the sequel after a long shoot in Indonesia, it’s time for the marketing effort to ramp up. Evans has been talking on Twitter about preparing the teaser trailer for a likely launch next month and the first poster has arrived via Twitch.
