Hold onto your hats folks. A new teaser trailer has dropped for Gareth Evans' action packed sequel to The Raid, probably the most critically acclaimed action movie of the last ten years. I'm pretty sure you'll be wanting to check out the trailer for yourself first, but what do we know about The Raid 2: Berandal so far? We know that Berandal picks up two hours after the events of The Raid, and that the film is likely to pit Rama (Uwais) against his brother, Andi (Donny Alamsyah), following the latter’s inheritance of his own criminal empire. Other than that, we can only guess at what Evans has in store.
Or at least we could, until now. The Raid 2 is scheduled for release in the U.S. in March 2014 and Evans has gone on record to say that the second film is the one he wanted to make in the first place. If The Raid was his back-up plan, it’s hard to imagine what he has in store for us this time out. But we’ll certainly be there. You, me and the fridge. The new trailer doesn't give much away, but the fast editing and jump cuts provide evidence of dastardly villains, electrifying car chases and one very moody hero. Can Gareth Evans follow his stunning entry in the V/H/S series with another winner? This is going to be a knockout. AW
