Here’s a small Christmas present, the release date for The Raid 2: Berandal. Mark your calenders for March 28th 2014. This comes after our recent news that the movie would run for a pulverising 148 minutes. Not only that, but the budget will be 15 times bigger. Alright so that’s an exaggeration since the original budget was only $1 million. But the point is if Gareth Evans can do such much with so little, what can he do with extra resources?
The movie will be released on March 28th, but the actual premiere will be next month at Sundance. The Raid 2 features Iko Uwais going undercover within a ruthless crime syndicate to protect his family. I don’t like speaking too soon, but I think The Raid 2 will prove to be Manliest Movie of the year 2014 and prove Gareth Evans to be a 21st century George Miller.
Is this his ‘Road Warrior’? Here’s the teaser again.
