Director Gareth Evans (THE RAID, V/H/S/2) released the first official teaser banner for THE RAID 2 via Twitter, and we've got it right here for you folks to dig on. It's not the most exciting thing you'll see today but it does give us a menacing look at the characters, and it teases "It's not over yet". And if what Evans says about the ridiculous amount of action that is going to be on display in the sequel, then I'd say that tagline is spot on!
“Last I checked – the action alone clocked in around 1hr 5mins mark,” he stated. "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." Go ahead and let that sink in...
Picking up right where the first film ends, ‘The Raid 2′ follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.
The film reunites writer/director Gareth Huw Evans with actor Iko Uwais, who will be reprising his starring role. Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Roy Marten, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, Kitamura Kazukiall all star.
