On Sunday, SXSW’s first showing of The Raid 2: Berandal was abruptly cancelled because the Indonesian version of the movie had been loaded instead of the subtitled ‘English’ version. Luckily director Gareth Evans was quick to think on his feet.
He ordered two of his stars, Iko Uwais (Rama) and Yayan Ruhian (Prakoso), to come up onstage and give the fans an impromptu demonstration of their skills.
It may have been something they heavily rehearsed but it looks good and actually has turned out to be a great little viral promo for the movie. As ever with these things someone caught the whole thing on camera and you can see it for yourself below.
The Raid 2 hits theatres March 28th, right alongside Sabotage. Which will you go to see? Both is the obvious answer, there are 24 hours in one day!
