Do you really need further proof? A savage new trailer and behind the scenes video smash their way through for ‘The Raid’

Gareth Evans’ phenomenal martial arts epic, The Raid, is due to premier here in the UK at the Glasgow Film Four Fright Fest on Saturday, and I am so jealous of anyone who has managed to get the time off work and get tickets. If I could, I would be there because The Raid is set to revolutionise martial arts films, and action films in general.

Gareth Evans, director of the Raid, has previously directed Merantau and Footsteps, but The Raid is set to propel the director into the big leagues. There is so much hype surrounding this film, and fans are literally at bursting point to see it. The film is released in the US on 23rd March, and in the run up to its release there will be six behind the scenes videos released to explain how the stunning looking film was made. We already saw the first one here last week, and now we have the second one for you.

So, in this post you not only get the new, stunning trailer, but also the new behind the scenes video! The video goes into detail on the sets and special effects, so please, enjoy! If you would like to see all our previous stories, click here


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
