Here comes a brand new trailer and another image from The Raid 2, which is set to hit limited theaters this March. Described as one of the most anticipated movies of the Sundance Film Festival, the movie follows the events of the original 2012 hit The Raid: Redemption, and revolves around a rookie Jakarta cop Rama who thought he could resume a normal life. But, as you’re about to see, he couldn’t have been more wrong…
Written and directed by Gareth Evans, the movie stars Iko Uwais as the above mentioned Rama, who this time goes 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.
Check him out:
And in case you’ve missed the official synopsis:
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.
Also starring Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura, The Raid 2 is set to hit limited theaters on March 28th, 2014.
