A New Raid 2 Trailer Lands Online
The internet salutes Iko Uwais

Posters, stills, featurettes and trailers have already heralded the imminent arrival of The Raid 2 (not subtitled 'Berandal' in this country, just as we didn't call the last one Redemption). And now here's yet another of the latter: a new 90-second teaser of glorious face-smashery and jailhouse rocking. In mud.

This clip is officially dubbed The Internet Trailer, reflecting the fact that the web's numerous high profile interbloggers have already uniformly gone ice cold thick banana whips over Gareth Evans' punishing sequel. Basking in the minute-and-a-half above, it's hard not to share their enthusiasm.


The Raid 2 – described by more than one hack of Empire's acquaintance as Once Upon A Time In Jakarta - picks up the story two hours after The Raid, and sweeps Rama (Iko Uwais) into a much broader world of corruption and violence as he infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless crime syndicate.

Yayan Ruhian (playing a different role to last time), Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki are all part of the new cast, with Evans directing as before. The Raid 2 flying-kicks into the UK on April 11.
