The Raid 2 Poster

The first vision from the sequel to 2012’s THE RAID has hit, and it hits hard. THE RAID 2: BERANDAL is Gareth Huw Evans’ follow-up to the intense action film. Currently in post-production, the finished film will reach cinemas around the world in the first half of 2014.

 Shot and set again in Indonesia, THE RAID 2: BERANDAL picks up two hours after the point where THE RAID left off, diving straight back into a world filled with corruption and violence. Evans again takes writing and directing duties on this significantly larger project.

 Lead actor Iko Uwais returns for THE RAID 2: BERANDAL , and is joined by new cast including Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, Yayan Ruhian, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewo, Marsha Timothy, Cecep Arif Rahman, Matsuda Ryuhei, Endo Kenichi and Kitamura Kazuki.
