Merantau Films has released the Indonesian trailer for Gareth Evan’s sequel to 2011’s brilliant The Raid, The Raid 2: Berandal. The trailer contains almost all-new footage, starting slow but building to a brilliant, bloody crescendo.
The film, which takes place two hours after the events of the first , with Rama going undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and to uncover the corruption in his own police force.
Iko Uwais is back in the lead, with Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Marsha Timothy, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, and Cecep Arif Rahman featuring.
The Raid 2: Berandal is expected to be released in March 2014.
Written and directed by Gareth Evans, THE RAID 2 picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission–and the organized crime syndicate–down around him.
