Just yesterday we brought you the news that Sony Pictures Classics are planning to release Gareth Evans’ award winning martial arts pic, The Raid, sometime in Spring 2012. Awesome as that news was, nothing can prepare you for the truly incredible treat we have in store for you today!
A brand new trailer has just been released for the films Indonesian release, and while the early Sony red band trailer was simply breathtaking, this new trailer is out of this world! There is more violence, fights and vicious gun shots to the head to enjoy here, set to a rock soundtrack and still with no dialogue, if this trailer does not get you interested then we all might as well just give up hope.
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 rundown 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 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst to survive their mission. Director Gareth Evans (Merantau) and rising martial- arts star Iko Uwais reunite in this adrenaline-fueled action film.
