It's been a busy month so far for the production partners at Merantau Films and XYZ Films. With The Raid 2: Berandal set to make its three-night world premiere beginning tonight at the Sundance Film Festival following with what has been a grueling post production schedule, we now have a full new trailer for the film's North American theatrical transition as The Raid 2.
Immediately following the events of the original, The Raid 2 tracks Officer Rama as he is pressured to join an anti-corruption task force to guarantee protection for his wife and child. His mission is to get close to a new mob boss, Bangun, by befriending his incarcerated son, Uco. Rama must hunt for information linking Bangun with corruption in the Jakarta Police Department while pursuing a dangerous and personal vendetta that threatens to consume him and bring his mission-and the organized crime syndicate-down around him.
