Teaser Poster For The Raid 2: Berandal
It's not over yet...

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.

The Raid 2: Berandal picks up the story where the first one left off 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.

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, which promises to up the action levels (yes, really) while still keeping one eye on the plot. “We have 17 action sequences in the film – so there’s going to be a lot fresh material unspoiled by any teaser or trailer we release,” Evans wrote of the film on Twitter.

For more from the director, take a listen to what he said when he appeared on Empire’s podcast a couple of weeks ago. The Raid 2: Berandal is aiming for a 2014 release, but whatever the date, we’re simply listing it as 'Not Soon Enough'.

RE: Teaser Poster For The Raid 2: Berandal
That surely is some bad photoshop. Pretty cool news nonetheless. More
