New Poster For The Raid 2: Berandal
Iko Uwais goes mosaic

If you’re already burning with anticipation for the martial arts and other violent madness offered by director Gareth Evans and The Raid 2: Berandal, here’s something to keep those fires stoked. Evans has hit Twitter to debut a new poster for the film.

Designed by Omar Hauksson, the image of star Iko Uwais is built using a mosaic of images from the movie itself, most of them showing people hitting other people. It’s a technique that has been used in movie imagery in particular for a while now, but it certainly beats a basic floating head job.

This sequel picks up the story two hours after The Raid and sweeps Rama (Uwais) into a much broader world of corruption and violence as he goes undercover in prison and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate. And yes, it looks even more gloriously violent than its predecessor, if that's possible. 

With Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Yayan Ruhian, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki also in the cast, The Raid 2: Berandal premiered at Sundance to a rapturous reception and is slated to arrive in the US on March 28 and heads over here on April 11.
