XYZ Films producing partner and Twitchfilm founder and editor Todd Brown unveiled an exclusive look at the brand new Indonesian poster art on Tuesday night for the upcoming release of the epic martial arts crime saga, The Raid 2 from writer and director Gareth Evans. The latest feature starring Iko Uwais reprising his role from the first film in 2011, the new film has been on a busy streak making the film festival rounds at Sundance and SXSW, and celebrated far and wide as one of the best martial arts action thrillers as of late.
Sony is releasing the film worldwide beginning March 28, 2014 in Indonesia, North America and New Zealand/Australia with other dates and locations pending. The film is a production of XYZ Films and Merantau Films with actresses Julie Estelle and Marsha Timothy, and actors Alex Abbad, Arifin PutraMathias MuchusTio Pakusadewo, Cecep Arif Rahman and Yayan Ruhian also starring. A third film is also in development. 

SYNOPSIS:
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.
