For whatever reason, the team behind The Raid 2‘s marketing campaign felt compelled to release another trailer for the action packed film. But honestly, should we be really be complaining at all. The first trailer didn’t do much but tease, while the second one was set on giving us a bit more action, but the following trailer you will see will give us an idea of what fighting in a car while getting stabbed in the butt looks like, how a girl uses a hammer to beat down her opponents interprets a coin toss, and more scenes involving lots of mud and fights in a kitchen.
We will have to wait a little while longer before the film comes out in March, but with the film making it’s Sundance premiere, what better way to rile up the film festival attendees than to present a brand new punch-fest trailer. Hit the jump to see it and a few GIFs created by Sony Pictures Classic.
He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
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.
The Raid 2 makes its way into theaters on March 28.
