First Footage from 'The Raid 2' Screens, Is Awesome
Audiences at the recent Frightfest screening of V/H/S 2 got a special bonus after the movie. Gareth Evans, who co-directed one of the shorts, presented the very first look at The Raid 2: Berandal. Here's what we learned from that clip.
The Raid 2 begins two hours after the first film ends, but the entire story spans a four year period. The clip introduces a new character: Hammer Girl, which just right there sounds fantastic. Evans described her fighting style as "hari mau," which translates to "tiger style." The scene involved Hammer Girl fighting a bunch of guys in suits on a moving subway car.
All in all, it's an awesome peek at what Evans and his team have in store for the sequel. The Raid was one of the most inventive, original, and all-around awesome action movies in recent memory, and it seems like Berandal is more than capable of living up to our expectations.
The Raid 2: Berandal is expected to be released sometime in 2014.
