No comments: Links to this post

2011 Gareth Evans introduce cinephiles to the action packed brutal world of The Raid , 2014 it's time to embrace the adrenaline as it's time to return to that world in The Raid 2 watch new UK TV Spot.

The new spot delivers 31 seconds of intensity, action, pain and excitement as well as the critics quotes to put our minds at ease that The Raid will deliver that suckerpunch of excitement we expect to see in the follow up movie. Most of all after it's world premier at Sundance Film Festival some critics are going as far as saying its action film of 2014 a powerful statement to make even if we're not even quarter of the way through 2014 yet!

Last week whilst we where on Film Festival duty an Australian trailer for The Raid 2 was released online which backs up those critics comments and why we're so stoked to see this next month!

The Raid 2 will be released in UK on 11th April starring Iko UwaisJulie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Yayan Ruhian, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki

Let The Bodies Hit The Floor In The Raid 2: Berandal First Teaser Trailer

No comments: Links to this post
Whenever I get asked what was one of my cinematic highlights of 2012, I always say right away The Raid and the Glasgow Frightfest screening (with star and director in attendance). 2014 the most anticipated action film The Raid 2: Berandal will explode in cinemas near you but for now lets get excited as the first teaser trailer has arrived!

It's not over yet and thanks to the good folks at Twitch we get our first taster of the action and boy it's mayhem! The scale and scope of The Raid 2 is alot  grander  plus it looks like the sequel is not confined to one building but several but why our hero Rama is locked up we don't know but what he does to that silhouette on the wall he's mighty pissed off. If we're to go by the scum of Indonesian crime underbelly we met in The Raid we can expect we ain't seen anything yet. The trailer shows the major players of the new film (Tegar Satrya and Yayan Ruhian) plus a first look at new characters  Assassin(Cecep Rahman) ,Hammer Girl (Julie Estelle). What will get fans of the first film excited is the return of Yayan Ruhian aka Mad Dog though he's playing Prakoso whom we expect will be as insane as his previous character.

The set pieces look as bone crushingly insane as before, possible Jackie Chan style shopping mall chase? No one should be standing in front of cars but when it's a car in a Gareth Huw Evans film well you'll just have to watch the trailer!

No word on a UK release date or distributor, but don't be surprise if The Raid 2: Berandal makes an appearance at Film4 Glasgow or London in 2014. The film stars Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Alex Abad, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, Julie Estelle, Cecep Arif Rahman, Cok Simbara, Yayan Ruhian, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi, and Kitamura Kazuki.

Berandal aka The Raid 2 Starts Shooting, First Images Revealed

No comments: Links to this post
Production has finally started on the eagerly awaited The Raid 2 also known as Berandal, kicking off an 100 day shoot in the Indonesian capital Jakarta and we have some images to get us in the mood!

The Raid 2:Berandal reunites Gareth Huw Evans and star of The Raid Uwo Iwais as Rama once again picking up from the moment he leaves the towering high rise taking the city's infamous crime syndicate. With the stakes now even higher and with corruption among the city's police department now exposed too Rama must protect his family and go deeper into Jakarta's criminal underworld.

Very moody images with Rama looking tired, bruised but not out looking edgy but most of all ready to inflict more pain on some nasty people which we want to see. What's more intriguing is Evans promises The Raid 2: Berandal will be “bigger, better and bloodier!”. The Raid was one of my highlights of 2012 when it made it's UK premiere at Glasgow Film4 Frightfest  meeting the director and the film's main star and of course my autographed poster takes centre stage in The Peoples Movies & Cinehouse main office!

The Raid 2: Berandal will arrive sometime 2014.

Here's the official American press release:

Highly-anticipated Actioner “The Raid 2” Starts Production in Jakarta, Indonesia

Los Angeles, CA (January 31, 2013) – PT Merantau Films and XYZ Films announce the start of production for THE RAID 2 (Indonesian title, THE RAID 2: BERANDAL), the sequel to the wildly popular international hit THE RAID (aka THE RAID: REDEMPTION).  The film reunites writer/director Gareth Huw Evans with actor Iko Uwais, who will be reprising his starring role.  Ario Sagantoro is producing for PT Merantau Films, along with Nate Bolotin, Nick Spicer, Aram Tertzakian and Todd Brown for XYZ Films.  Executive producing are Rangga Maya Barack-Evans and Irwan D. Mussry.

In addition to Uwais, the international cast includes Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad and Roy Marten.  The film is currently lensing in Jakarta, Indonesia and is scheduled to shoot for over 100 days. Line producing the film is Daiwanne Ralie, with Matthew Flannery and Dimas Imam Subhono serving as directors of photography.

Picking up right where the first film ends, The Raid 2 follows Rama (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.

The Raid premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, where it took home the Audience Award in the Midnight Madness section. It went on to play at Sundance and SXSW, before enjoying a theatrical release in the United States through Sony Pictures Classics. The film is approaching $15M in global box office.

XYZ and PT Mereantau Films are also in post-production on KILLERS, which is co-directed by Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel, with Gareth Huw Evans and Rangga Maya Barack-Evans executive producing .  Evans and Tjahjanto recently collaborated on SAFE HAVEN, a celebrated segment in the horror anthology film S-VHS, which just premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

XYZ Films recently premiered Calvin Lee Reeder’s THE RAMBLER at Sundance as well.

“We’re incredibly excited to start the next chapter of The Raid story,” said XYZ Films. “Gareth introduced a rich and fertile world in the first film, and we’re eager to see him expand on that vision with Berandal.”

“To all our fans thank you so much for your support. We can’t wait to come back and show you what we have been working on,” said writer/director Gareth Evans. “We’ll be there in 2014 with a film bigger, better and bloodier! Wish us luck.”
