Savagely violent new trailer for Gareth Evans' The Raid 2

IGN has an awesome new trailer for Gareth Evans' THE RAID 2, and in my opinion it is more intense and brutal than most red band trailers. Seriously, there are so many shots of bones being broken, and people getting punched and kicked you'll be aching all over after watching this new trailer.

Physically ill!


He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen - a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls - rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn't have been more wrong.

Formidable though they may have been, Rama's opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap.

And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender "Yuda." In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco - the son of a prominent gang kingpin - to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.

With very strong reviews (you can read ours here) and some excellent marketing, THE RAID 2 will likely perform better than the first movie at the box office, however I'm curious to see just how much better it will do in theaters. Good internet buzz doesn't always equal money in the bank, but I do know there are a ton of people who are extremely excited for THE RAID 2.

THE RAID 2 starring Iko Uwais will be released on March 28th, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: I really hope to see Iko Uwais in more films after the release of THE RAID 2.
