First red band trailer for The Raid is ass-kickingly awesome!

Director Gareth Evans (MERENTAU) is about to unleash what's already being touted as the best action movie of 2011 with THE RAID, an Indonesian film that's been blowing everyone away at the Toronto International Film Festival. Hopefully it'll be landing on our shores very, very soon. Goddamn!

Synopsis: Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the run-down apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the sixth floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission. Starring Indonesian martial arts sensation Iko Uwais.

Extra Tidbit: As noted in the trailer, Sony (who picked up the film almost immediately at TIFF) has commissioned Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to record an entirely new score for the film.
