The Raid 2: Berandal Getting a Theatrical ReleaseGood news for those of us who are super looking forward to director Gareth Edwards’ sequel to The Raid: Redemption entitled The Raid 2: Berandal. It’s official – Sony Pictures Classics will be giving the flick a theatrical release!

Synopsis
PT Merantau Films and XYZ Films teamed up for THE RAID 2 (Indonesian title, THE RAID 2: BERANDAL), the sequel to the wildly popular international hit THE RAID (aka THE RAID: REDEMPTION). The film reunites writer/director Gareth Huw Evans with actor Iko Uwais, who reprises his starring role. In addition to Uwais, the international cast includes Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad, and Roy Marten.

Picking up right where the first film ends, The Raid 2 follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) acquired the film for the United States, Spain, Latin America, and South Africa; and Sony Pictures Classics will once again release the film theatrically in the United States.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Consider me #1 on the super looking forward list. I loved The Raid. I hope it plays here but I doubt it considering I was the only person in the entire theater the last time…twice.
